    Best IT Department of my Career

    IT Management (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsCompany 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.

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Love working at TXI

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsExcellent Technology. They use VMWare and are a VDI / Oracle shop. Lots of challenges and opportunities to learn something new.

    ConsRecently sold to Martin Marietta and the future is in question for those employed there for post purchase changes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKnowing is so much better than not knowing - give folks a chance to look elsewhere if they will be let go.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    While working at TXI, If you show up and work hard, you will succeed and management will make sure you do.

    Sales (Former Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    ProsSecurity, Peer Relationships and next 10 year potential. While working at TXI, If you show up and work hard, you will succeed and management will make sure you do. The People at TXI are its definate strength. The quality of these individuals character is refreshing. TXI is in the "Retirement Red Zone"...Many of TXI top managers have been ready to retire since the early 2000's.

    ConsWhile management will help you succeed in your current position they are not very apt at training or preparing you to take the next step. Some managers are intimidated by strong employee's and fear the loss of position to those under them. Overall the managers are good to work for but you might have to be very patient for promotion.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on all business units. Take an interest in Agg's and Consumer Products and use your diversity to build strength across all business units.

    Has its pros and cons

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsDecent Pay
    All training provided to people with no experience
    Flexible work schedules if time needed for Dr Appts.

    ConsLong hours in the summer... often working 12 hr days - 6, sometimes 7 days a week
    Hours dropped back to 40 hrs in the winter months, which can drastically impact the paycheck when you are used to the summer months, so plan accordingly
    Often told on Friday that you are working on Saturday
    If a paid holiday falls on a weekday, management likes to have you work that day and then take Friday off.. fine for some holidays, but 4th of July, New Years Eve, Christmas, should not be changed. And if there is a holiday, you can expect to work Saturday of the following week to make up for lost production days.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive employees advance notice before working on the weekend, not the day before.

    Satisfactory

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Houston, TX

    ProsIt is nice to see that the product you provide has helped build a city. The fruits of your labor will be around for generations. The people are friendly.

    ConsThis is a commodity driven sector. It is nice to have a company that prides itself on providing the best product but the bottom line is that the product must be at an affordable price.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep providing the quality product that you are providing. Continue to look for ways in which the product can be delivered at an affordable price to the end user.
