    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.

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

    Pros

    Agency is better than other state agencies in that employees know from day one that they are an asset

    Chain of command is more convoluted than other agencies so it can be difficult to know where to go when there are issues....and there will be issues of some sort.

    Clean up the useless employees from the top down

    I have been working at TxDOT (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good amount of leave time. Management is very willing to help young engineers learn the trade. Everyone is friendly and easy going. Most days start at 8 AM and are done by 5 PM

    The pay could be better. I do not have much else to say about cons, but I have to reach a word limit.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a good job. The culture is great. The work life balance is great. The department of transportation does a great job of keeping employees happy.
