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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
