    I worked at Trinity Industries (More than a year)

    Pros

    compensation and the quarterly bonus program. Interesting work and the supervision is in general very understanding of some of the harsh work that needs to be completed.

    Cons

    You must work there a year before you are allowed paid time off. This makes it difficult to want to take time away from work for family.

    Pros

    Solid senior leadership
    Diversfied in several industries
    Acquisition, growth oriented
    Great work-life balance

    Cons

    Can be slow to make decisions. Not a stuck-in-the-past mindset as one might expect from a company that started in the railcar industry.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people from outside our industries to infuse fresh perspectives

    Good pay. Bonus and vacation pay. Good overall team to work with. Great team leaders and good safety team. I'd advise anyone looking for great pay and a good team to work with

    Well if you are a family person it may not be a good fit for you due to the fact that trinity works alot of hours. Ranging from 60 to 76 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Not really advice but more like a complaint. Keep up the good job on how you treat your employees and business will continue to strive.

    I have been working at Trinity Industries full-time (Less than a year)

    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.
