I worked at TxDOT full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

* reasonable work hours; almost always 40, unless you want to do more.

Cons

* below market salary rates
* lack of mentoring / direction for new employees
* lots of arbitrary deadlines
* culture of poor communication. employees on the ground have little chance of knowing what's actually going on.
* lots of administrative overhead (detailed timesheets, status reports, a fair number of unnecessary meetings)
* large bureaucracy makes it difficult to get things done
* management never makes changes in response to feedback

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Basically, you have no trust or respect from the employees whatsoever. Management only appears to be interested in cost-cutting and outsourcing, and is destroying the organizational culture. Employees in the halls talk openly about when they're "getting out." Without exaggeration, I can say that this is the worst management I've ever seen, and they could hardly do worse if they were trying.
