    I worked at Trinity Industries (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Have nice co-workers & job is close to home.

    Cons

    Old school mentality is entrenched, difficult to change processes. Morale is bad due to poor work life balance, disregard for employees, favoritism, lack of employee development.

    Advice to Management

    Need to replace or reassign long term management who perpetuate an atmosphere of “rule by iron fist”. Employees should not feel intimidation, but empowerment and will not take iniative unless they are inspired.

    Pros

    Some good managers most are snakes lacking the right skills to advance or get out of there

    Get it clean, raise wages to get the right people, don’t bite off more than you can chew, don’t fake safety, capital investments needed

    I worked at Trinity Industries full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    In the maintenance department and there are none

    Cons

    Supervisors are a joke, and they find ways to keep you from moving forward, lack of leadership

    Advice to Management

    I would share my opinion but it would do no good. If they don’t think of it then it’s probably not going to happen
