    I worked at TXI full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.
