    I have been working at Manitowoc Co. full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits. Staff is great. If you want to be told what to do, this is the place. If you don't want to be held accountable, this is the place.

    Cons

    Directors are really micro-managers. Most managers are just managers. Leadership above the director level appears to understand leadership. Director level doesn't understand what leadership is. The entire company appears to like management by fear. No one is held accountable. Big bark, no stick.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the executives would lead and be leaders (making the tough decisions) this company may be able to retain white collar staff. Adhere to the values you espouse. Lip service doesn't work, hence the high turnover.

  2.  

    Foodservice group lacks direction, has too little resources, too many projec and is overly concerned with cutting costs.

    I worked at Manitowoc Co. full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Has a good portfolio of different brands.

    Cons

    Undergoing a massive reorganization which has resulted with the brands no longer having any autonomy. People have been reassigned to functions they're either not qualified for or really don't want. In time, they'll probably see a mass exodus of key people as they find other jobs that provide more reward and satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in people and quit the endless cost cutting.

    I have been working at Manitowoc Co. full-time

    Pros

    The pay is good and there is plenty of overtime. You can work as many hours as you want as long as you work at least 58 a week.

    Cons

    There is mandatory overtime and you are forced to work at least six days a week. Five days a week you have to work 10 1/2 hours and on the sixth day you can usually work 8. Also, we are always out of parts and constantly changing the production schedule. If you care about the company, you will be frustrated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please invest in the QAD system and get control of your inventory. Also, get rid of the consultants who are milking the system.

    I worked at Manitowoc Co.

    Pros

    Manitiwoc provides many opportunities to work abroad, as a large portion of its business is done outside of the US.

    Cons

    No diversity. Many employees have been working for the company for an extensive amount of time, and have become very resistant to any change or new ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When creating project teams or committees, increase the candidate pool from which you choose these candidates. Most internal committees are comprised of the same core group of people. Not because they are experts in their field(s), but because they have worked together for many years and continually nominate each other. Ensure that all core ethical standards are enforced throughout the company... domestically and internationally.
