    Horrible company & management

    Receptionist (Former Employee)
    Redmond, WA

    ProsIt was a pay check, and I got more experience to put on the resume

    ConsI was treated so awful, and I wasn’t the only one. About half of the company is temporary workers, who get promised things and then chopped at the last minute. I had to train my own replacement, no one wants to get to know anyone because the high turn-over, it is a competitive and unprofessional environment.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour employees are human, try treating them that way. Stop putting people on salaries and pushing them to work crazy long hours, stop hiring temps and not giving them benefits, and simply be nice. Say good morning every now and then. To the people at the top and in corporate land, I don’t know how you sleep at night. You people are so greedy and selfish.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Incompetence is the requisite for middle management.

    Senior Design Engineer (Former Employee)
    Rock Hill, SC

    ProsProducts are great. Location is great. People on the assembly line are great. Most managers are great with the exception of a few. Engineers are easey to work with.

    ConsPay stinks, most advanced positions pay entry level at best. Management has got to be the most incompetent group of folks in business. Managers who run multiple plants into the ground get promoted. Those who perform stay put those who don’t perform get promoted. Merit is simply just not recognized.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry learning something and have some accomplishment before you take on a management role. They you would have something to work from. Also, promote from within and recognize those who do and those who waist air. Fire the ones who never produce especially managers. Dead weight pulls everyone down.

    Corporate politics at it's worst

    Info Tech (Former Employee)

    ProsBenifits were ok
    you can make good money if you lack any moral values

    ConsPolitics are horrible, management will lie to your face, and the "ethics" reporting will get your position eliminated.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Unorganized with Company-wide Lack of Communication.

    Finance/Accounting (Former Employee)

    Pros- Compensation/salary was fair.
    - Benefits were decent.

    Cons- No communication within and between departments and branches.
    - Lack of training and direction.
    - Reactive instead of being proactive.
    - Lots of "passing the buck" - no one would take responsibility and provide direction/assistance.
    - Long hours and stressful work environment.
    - Lots of internal company politics and finger pointing/gossip.
    - Managers who do not understand their subordinates job duties and don't seem to care.
    - Some activities border on the lines of being unethical/illegal.

    Advice to Senior ManagementImprove lines of communication and provide more training to new employees. Be more proactive rather than reactive.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Terrorex

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsBig company with lots of cash. WIll not go out of business and can buy anyone they want. Some good products.

    Conscomplete and utter lack of strategy. No benefits package for staff - how can a company this bignot have a pension scheme? Total lack of pay scales - lots of people will leave as soon as they find a new job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf Terex wants to be "the best company in the business to work for" then stop paying lip service and do somethin about it. Lots of good people get poor pay, and lots of idiots get too much pay. Sort the balance!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
