      Pros

      What I do is easy money with little responsibility.

      Cons

      The company is a joke. There is absolutely zero regard for ability and education.

      Advice to Management

      Utilize the skills and knowledge of those employed here. Do not put the people with graduate degrees in grunt-level positions.

      I have been working at Trinity Industries full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      People are friendly and the pay is decent for the amount of work

      Cons

      -It's not set up for any career advancement, so there isn't any training or continuing education. People stay here for a long time because its easy, but there is typically no chance of getting promoted because there isn't anything to get promoted to. -I would not say its "woman friendly" in regards to benefits. They don't even cover maternity leave converage in the benefits package. I had to request information from...

      Pros

      Nothing. Unless you're an idiot, because idiots can THRIVE at this company.

      Cons

      The absolute worst "leadership". Too many chiefs, not enough Indians. The people in leadership completely lack business-sense, any and all leadership skills, backbone, technical and analytical skills, tenacity, integrity, and numerous other necessary traits for success. If each of them were to ask themselves at the end of each day - "Did I earn my paycheck today?" - and then answered honestly... they'd all have to say...

      Advice to Management

      Google the term 'Leadership". It won't help you become a better leader (at this point, nothing can), but at least you'll know the definition if someone asks you in an elevator or something.

      To much to list, But it’s a job if you can get past the level of ignorance you have to put up with from upper management

      Advice to Management

      Advice to the CEO start over with your Pell City Al plant from number 3 down. Eric and Sam are hands down the best for the Positions they have and are the only two people that I wouldn’t fire. Hope you read this..
