    I worked at TxDOT (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits and pay are hard to match in the public sector. It's not a sexy place to work, but it happens to be the most progressive government agency I've every been associated with. The people I worked with made it great for me.

    Cons

    You have to deal with the many policies, procedures, and politics that come along with government work.

    Pros

    Exceptional work enviroment, great health benefits and flexible work schedule. Also, management is very understanding when it comes to requesting time off.

    Cons

    Non-Competitive salaries, which is the result why the personnel turn over rate is so high. The state engineer tech techs should be as qualified as the contracting engineer techs.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to maintain a work life balance for all of your employees. Improve the overall salaries so you could have a more competitive edge.
