    Pros

    They give 2 days a year off to non-smokers. Makes up for all the breaks the smokers take. You do have to certify that you are a non smoker.

    Cons

    Have an old attitude towards benefits. They need to up their vacation and and treat all office workers the same on time off for illness. Exempt gets weeks off per year, non-exempt gets 5 days a year. Once you use it, they start taking your vacation.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to keep the younger generation from jumping ship, you need to upgrade your benefits.

    Pros

    Just about everyone has good intentions. The company is willing to invest in you. There are many projects to work on and increase technical knowledge.

    Cons

    Follow through and organization between departments is lacking. Upper management spends frivolously on projects that are not bought into by the operator while equipment degrades and does not receive proper investment.

    Advice to Management

    Improve cross department communication and organization.

    Pros

    Team atmosphere! Great place to work for depending on the department you work for.

    Cons

    They do not promote or develop talent within. Prefer millenials and foster monthly developmental lunches for them. Out with the old and in with the new.

    Advice to Management

    Watch your leaders in management? If everyone is leaving its probably time to remove the person at the helm? Your the only company that does not do exit interviews which would shed light on whats really going on within your company.

    I have been working at Trinity Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has a good set of core values and is run with a very good strategic focus. Currently the company is very strong because of its position in some key markets and working for a company that is successful and growing always a plus. The benefits are slightly above average, and there is some training.

    Cons

    The business unit where I am employed is run with little to no professionalism whatsoever. Which is a shame because the childishness that pervades the management of the unit prevents the unit from being a really great place to work and and the job from being a great one.

    I would agree that career advancement is something that many cannot look forward to. There isn't a strong promote from within motivation. I would be surprised to see myself reaching the 5 year mark with Trinity.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise management to take a serious look at the way each business unit is managed fundamentally, not just at the quarterly bottom line. Times are good right now, but there is much room for improvement in the management and organization of the company.
