About Teacher Retirement System of Texas

TRS delivers retirement and related benefits than 1.3 million public education and higher education employees and retirees participate in the system. There is something unique about the TRS culture that manifests a caring, committed and dedicated focus on excellence, perhaps because the agency’s approximately 550 employees possess a strong sense of purpose. Even employees never in direct contact with TRS members understand that their jobs exist for the members. It may be this clear and unifying focus that leads to the friendly hallway greetings and spirit of camaraderie that exists.

TRS represents meaningful work being accomplished by dedicated, bright people who make it one of the top workplaces in Austin. Sample TRS employee comments from the 2013 Top Workplace Survey: • “This organization has a passion for excellence, both in serving our members and doing whatever we do extremely well. Meaningful work brings a deep sense of satisfaction. Being surrounded by dedicated, talented professionals with a common purpose is another big positive of working here.” • “Management is supportive in finding ways where employees’ natural abilities or ‘personal genius’ can be utilized to benefit TRS. Matching the right people in the right jobs has helped the Investment Management Division be successful.” • “The culture of this agency is not only very supportive and friendly, but the work is challenging and exciting. You don’t often see this in public sector organizations—the fast pace and also the emphasis on work/life balance.”
