    Pros

    The people are the best assest and there is never a dull day! The culture is inviting and it's family oriented with lots of history. Great opportunities for engineers interested in participating in an organization focused on Lean Manufacturing and Kaizen. The benefits are great and always improving.

    Cons

    Communication from leadership and having people in the appropriate leadership positions. The economy hit Terex hard and resulted in RIFs. It will be a difficult challenge to recover from, but many former employeesv are jumping at the opportunity to come back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop your teams and spend the time to give solid value added reviews. Encourage people to grow and give them projects to work on to advance their skills.

    lots of opportunity,
    multi national company
    various career paths
    friendly people
    great work life balance
    great benefits
    this company has a lot of potential

    Cons

    although a great place to start, there is little investment in people
    no training, no investment in developing the skills set of key professionals
    poor communication
    fragmented organization, no goals setting, no communicated objectives, no mentoring, no structure. managers are focused on their own personal development and careers and not so much on those who report to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is important not only to create slogans, but also to lead by them. managers should be held accountable for the success and developmenent of their team.
