Best internship experience ever!
Risk Management Intern (Former Employee) –  1000 Red River St.August 8, 2018
During the summer of 2018 I was hired as an intern for the risk management department. The typical day of work started at 7:00-8:00 am and finished around 4:00-5:00 pm. All departments have different daily tasks, but all include individual and collaborative work. The culture at TRS is amazing. Everyone you encounter will make you feel welcome. Even executives will treat you with the upmost respect.
Pros
Location, Management, Paid Training

It's not what it used to be
Counselor (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXAugust 3, 2017
If you like to be micromanaged and constantly nitpicked over small stuff, this is the place for you. It's changed over the past two years. New management doesn't really care about the employees, only about advancing their careers. When you bring issues to upper management or even Human Resources, it gets swept under the rug and nothing gets done or that employee get labeled a troublemaker.
Pros
Lots of extra time off
Cons
Everything else

Private sector employees need not apply
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Austin, TXJuly 26, 2017
TRS is not really interested in a diverse workforce. They only seem to want state agency clones who have done the same thing, the same way at the same old boring agencies. You could be a subject matter expert from the private sector, but managers don't want those innovative solutions to their redundant processes.
Pros
Free on-site parking
Cons
Poor management

Good if you like being treated like a piece of furniture
Technical Support (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXApril 29, 2017
Lots of cliques; lots of people who horde knowledge and make you grovel to get them to do their job; Dept & Agency management condescending; state benefits keep getting worse; mid-management the worst example of passive-aggressive terror management; Dept & Agency management offer trivial perks that are more akin to Make-A-Wish efforts to make you forget you're in a dead-end job and not a solution to workplace apathy; Dept & Agency management seem to be more concerned about their own careers and being sure to find scape goats than actually finding real solutions to problems.
Pros
covered parking (I know weak)
Cons
Internal politics that prevent service improvement or professional or personal development

Some of the people are not so friendly.

Hardworking and friendly staff, constantly learning
Benefits Proccessor (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXAugust 23, 2015
Welcoming and warm staff, ready to assist, teach, and learn at all times. Training is well-organized and individually based over a long period of time, ensuring full knowledge of the retirement process. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing results in your individual work and acquiring greater analytical/problem-solving skills. Also a very fast-growing company.

Cohesive state agency with great benefits and security.
Records Management Intern (Current Employee) –  Austin, TXDecember 22, 2014
TRS is a supportive and friendly work environment. Great benefits and a supportive management team create a stable work environment and ample opportunities to learn new skills. I had a great internship but unfortunately was unable to maintain my position. That is the one down side to this organization; most people enjoy their positions and stay so long vacancies can be sparse.
Pros
One of the friendliest places I've ever worked, supportive management, security if you can get hired.
Cons
Difficult to find permanent position, not the highest paid job.
