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

    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.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive unless you have a good amount of experience. The training is great....but that is when they actually send you to it.

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

    Pros

    Best place to learn your job/craft. Everyone is knowledgeable and willing to help, if you just ask. There is plenty of work! Co-workers are very nice. They treat you like your family. Great benefits. Can't stress enough that the benefits are top-notch!

    Cons

    Ridiculously low pay. No raises within a year. If you are looking to get rich, look somewhere else. This is a job here you primary concern is to help the people, not yourself. Promotions and raises go through multiple departments; your "manager" simply cannot give you more money. Everyone's hands are tied in this regard.

    Work is very slow. Absurdly slow. You don't work for profit. Do the job right, and safely! If you get bored easily, look somewhere else!

    Advice to Management

    Management can't do anything. It's simply a system where multiple people have to agree before anything gets done. This is not a con; the system is there because people (in the past) took advantage, and the money that is worked with is the taxpayers. Everything that is done with respect to money is heavily scrutinized.
