    I have been working at Trinity Industries full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has a good set of core values and is run with a very good strategic focus. Currently the company is very strong because of its position in some key markets and working for a company that is successful and growing always a plus. The benefits are slightly above average, and there is some training.

    Cons

    The business unit where I am employed is run with little to no professionalism whatsoever. Which is a shame because the childishness that pervades the management of the unit prevents the unit from being a really great place to work and and the job from being a great one.

    I would agree that career advancement is something that many cannot look forward to. There isn't a strong promote from within motivation. I would be surprised to see myself reaching the 5 year mark with Trinity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise management to take a serious look at the way each business unit is managed fundamentally, not just at the quarterly bottom line. Times are good right now, but there is much room for improvement in the management and organization of the company.

    Pros

    Decent pay and lots of overtime. Convenient location.

    Cons

    Very few days off. Lack of care for employees. No compensation for being away from friends and family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be bonuses given for the extra work that people do to complete quotas. They should figure out a schedule that will get the quotas accomplished and allow employees time off to spend with family and friends.

    I worked at Trinity Industries

    Pros

    I was given the opportunity to move around and learn different aspects of the business and there were plenty of opportunities to dig into the details and learn new things or make improvements.

    Cons

    When business gets tough, decisions are made based on who knows you and likes you rather than on who are the best people for the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More employee focus...take care of your most valuable assets.
