    I have been working at TxDOT full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Job has plenty of holidays. It has good insurance and good retirement. Not much pressure to perform since it is not profit driven.

    Cons

    Pay not as much as private sector. Really that is the only down side to working there, but some on the pros make up for it.

    Pros

    Slow paced and great place to learn and build yourself up. Family oriented atmosphere. Training is great and everyday is a new day to learn.
