    Pros

    Management, fair expectations, enjoy field of work, co-workers seem to be fairly happy.

    Cons

    I don't have any so far.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to Manitowoc would be to stop cutting out benefits and costs that affect the employees. It is an easy thing to do but will attract less quality work.

    Pros

    The people are wonderful to work with.

    Cons

    For such a large company, they are unorganized and waste a lot of money making decisions, then changing course. The workday is spent putting fires out instead of setting up things properly to eliminate fires.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro-managing. Empower your employees to make them feel more valuable.

    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 Management

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

    Constant change in priorities and direction

    Would be great if there was better direction and competitive salaries.

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

    Pros

    Good people running the company day to day.

    Cons

    If you try to do the right thing and live up to our values, that is great....Until it reveals someone's incompetence who is protected by executive leadership... then you are out the door faster than you can imagine.

    Advice to Management

    Your values are just words...learn what they mean, then try to actually live them like your employees do. I was respected and valued...and highly rewarded in the company...until I called to question something that one of their golden boys did to the detriment of the company, then they walked me out. When I brought it to the CEO and President's attention.... I was thrown back to the wolves that attacked me. Unreal. Don't ever trust this company. They screw their own people, customers and suppliers.

    Pros

    Growth, Employee Treatment, Travel, Flexibility. Great folks to work with. Opportunities abound if you are willing to travel the globe.

    Cons

    Compensation Package, Smoke Stacks, Rice Bowls. Segments sometimes don't work together. Recent M&A still have senior employees avoiding full Manitowoc philosophy. Compensation package change not explained.

    Advice to Management

    Visit all facilities!

    Pros

    Good benefits. Staff is great. If you want to be told what to do, this is the place. If you don't want to be held accountable, this is the place.

    Cons

    Directors are really micro-managers. Most managers are just managers. Leadership above the director level appears to understand leadership. Director level doesn't understand what leadership is. The entire company appears to like management by fear. No one is held accountable. Big bark, no stick.

    Advice to Management

    If the executives would lead and be leaders (making the tough decisions) this company may be able to retain white collar staff. Adhere to the values you espouse. Lip service doesn't work, hence the high turnover.
