    Pros

    Team oriented | Great place to start your career | Plenty of vacation time and sick time | Visibility with upper management | Managers are all very approachable and provide excellent mentorship

    Cons

    "Old Boys Club" | Older company that is set in its ways on many things | Nepotistic; some undeserving, unskilled employees will get promotions over others that are more deserving based on who they know | Cyclical business model, the company goes through downturns every 6-7 years, causing stress for employees due to thinking they will be laid off. | Non-monetary benefits are less progressive than other companies in the DFW area

    Advice to Management

    Take the exit interviews of younger employees seriously if you want to retain and attract younger talent.

    Pros

    none sadly at this time . Once was a fantastic place to work .

    Cons

    Poor new management , leadership believes in leading by fear , overworked , hostile work environment .

    Advice to Management

    Needs new management, when the current does not care about the people and only cares about threatening them with their jobs supervisors will follow suit , which is the case as of end of April . Overhaul in order . Sad when you break what was not broken. Once was a fantastic place to work with caring management in place .

    Pros

    Trinity provides competitive pay. You will have a lot of exposure to other plants and other areas that you might not normally get at large companies.

    Cons

    Sometimes trinity can overwork you. Don't be surprised if you are asked to do things that are outside of your current job description.

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort to thank your employees for the work they do
