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

    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.

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