A lot of lip service about respecting employees and servant leadership but they don't really care about their employees.

Pros

Working in the AWP division wasn't too bad but Construction or Roadbuilding is terrible.
There are some cool products that they build.
There are some great people working there but unfortunately they don't let any of them into management positions.

Cons

I have worked almost ten years and only have 2 days more vacation than when I started. I finally found another job where they care about their employees and will be starting there in another week.
There are many others that will be leaving as the economy picks up and more jobs are available.
There is no chance for improvement unless you are good at playing politics and don't care about the people who work for you.
I heard the Director of operations for all of Rock Hill said if the employees aren't upset he must not be doing his job right and that seems to be how they run things.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop thinking so much about your own ladder climbing and remember the people that are making your success possible.
A little consistency would be nice. Why are the benifits (ie. pay and vacation) so good at AWP but not at the Roadbuilding site just 5 miles down the road.

    Incompetence is the requisite for middle management.

    I worked at Terex

    Pros

    Products 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.

    Cons

    Pay 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 ManagementAdvice

    Try 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.

    Pros

    Nice people
    Making strides toward lean

    Cons

    Transfers from Redmond, WA seem to have preferential treatment
    During RIFs, dismissed valuable people that should have been keep - office politics is strong
    Not very much room for growth
    Bad work condition for floor employees (excessive heat)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that people are your most valuable assets
    Stop moving the outcasts from Genie to management positions in Rock Hill
    Promote fairly
