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

    Pros

    Great, friendly people. A lot of intelligent individuals that really create a warm environment. People bring in food to share and you can make friends easily.

    Cons

    One of the biggest drawbacks of this company is a lack of investment in the technical side of operations. Engineers are not treated very well and aren't considered that valuable of an asset.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in people that make Manitowoc advance in the market place. Manitowoc claims to be innovative and constantly looking towards the future, prove it!

    Good company, but trying to do too much with too few resources.

    I have been working at Manitowoc Co.

    Pros

    They are somewhat well established and are trying to improve reliability and quality.

    Cons

    There is a lot of potential for the shady grove division but they are locked into the past. The processes are old, the designs are old, the company does not seem to want to transform the products they produce. Also they don't really consider what the customer is paying for and it's really hard to get them to buy into top quality and innovation. The location is not much to be desired. They should really change locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the old mentality " if it ain't broke don't fix it". The customer feedback system does not work well at all yet you use it as an excuse not to fix or improve any if the products because you think the customer is fine with it. Improve the channels for customer feedback and use it to improve the products rather thinking that you know what the customer wants better than they do

    Pros

    In our location, there are few managers so there is less politics

    Cons

    Closed our location and moved to Mexico.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't grow the company by cost cutting.

    I worked at Manitowoc Co. full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers. Working hours were usually 8 hrs a day. I was kept very busy so the days just flew by.

    Cons

    Drive to and from work every day was longer than I care to have. Job responsibilities changed and I ended up doing more duties in an area which I was not hired to do. Not that I mind helping out but some days it became my "main" job while my real main job was left undone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees like part of the company. Don't say one thing to their face and then something totally different to others in the department.
