I worked at Manitowoc Crane Group

Pros

Top pay is decent compared similar careers in the area. A pay matrix determines your value to the company so pay increases for under-achieving employees is guaranteed. The union representatives will do everything within their power to help you keep your job, even if you don't deserve it.

Cons

Supervisors take credit for the good ideas of the production employees. Any suggestions are "taken into consideration", ignored for 2 or 3 months, then magically appear when management just happens to stumble upon the novel idea you gave them earlier. Of course, they conveniently don't remember you ever mentioning it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give credit where credit is due and give positive feedback to quality employees.

    I have been working at Manitowoc Crane Group

    Pros

    Global company with many local opportunities. Leading products in a competitive industry. Large ticket items with high quality provides great sense of satisfaction.

    Cons

    The global business requires many times to have virtual teams and meetings at odd hours when not working in the US or Europe. Constant pressure from competitors drives the business. Generally a cyclical business that is not everyones cup of tea.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue on with the focus in the emerging markets with high quality products at reasonable pricings, and with support that will win over the customers it the long run.

    Pros

    Other employees willing to help a new hire get his/her feet on the ground.

    Cons

    Be wary of internal, personal agendas that stand in the way of success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    True business agenda differs from the agenda espoused to employees. Goals for employees are blocked by the goals of this hidden agenda.
