    Pros

    Great tradition and demonstrated a desire and willingness to change. Survived downturn and built assets that eventually made them a very attractive acquisition candidate.

    Cons

    Didn't change fast enough. Determined need to change and put actions into place too late to stave off the eventual sale. Found themselves at the mercy of 2 shareholders.

    Pros

    TXI was very pro-employee and also pro-customer. The company culture was very good also. Had it not been for the merger with Martin Marietta, I would have expected to retire at TXI.

    Cons

    Only Con to mention was the poor management decisions that caused the company to lose money over the past 3-4 years and made the company a take-over target.

    Advice to Management

    It is moot at this point with the merger finalizing with Martin Marietta and very little TXI management being included in the merged company, however related to the Con above, I would have liked to see the management team make a better assessment of their California operation and perhaps have cut their losses sooner with regard to that asset.

    Pros

    Company places importance on ethics. Personal life is on par with professional life in terms of importance. Low turnover. Multitude of long term employees. Progressive within the industry. Green initiative. Community involvement. Talent pool within IT is very impressive. Senior Management open door policy. VP is knowledgeable and supportive of individual contributors and managers without micromanaging.

    Cons

    Company is mid-sized with flat organizational structure. Employee happiness results in low turnover so promotion opportunity is rare. This, clearly, is only a con with regard to individuals who are looking for rapid advancement in their careers. Central to Dallas so suburban commute is difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Continue efforts at improved communication, employee development, and promoting within. Very satisfied with all efforts of management.
