Good but could be great

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Manitowoc Co.

ProsThey are somewhat well established and are trying to improve reliability and quality.

ConsThere is a lot of potential for the shady grove division but they are locked into the past. The processes are old, the designs are old, the company does not seem to want to transform the products they produce. Also they don't really consider what the customer is paying for and it's really hard to get them to buy into top quality and innovation. The location is not much to be desired. They should really change locations.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the old mentality " if it ain't broke don't fix it". The customer feedback system does not work well at all yet you use it as an excuse not to fix or improve any if the products because you think the customer is fine with it. Improve the channels for customer feedback and use it to improve the products rather thinking that you know what the customer wants better than they do

It was just an OK place to work

Customer Service (Former Employee)
Manitowoc, WI

I worked at Manitowoc Co. full-time for less than a year

ProsFriendly co-workers. Working hours were usually 8 hrs a day. I was kept very busy so the days just flew by.

ConsDrive to and from work every day was longer than I care to have. Job responsibilities changed and I ended up doing more duties in an area which I was not hired to do. Not that I mind helping out but some days it became my "main" job while my real main job was left undone.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat employees like part of the company. Don't say one thing to their face and then something totally different to others in the department.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Foodservice group lacks direction, has too little resources, too many projec and is overly concerned with cutting costs.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Manitowoc Co. full-time for more than 8 years

ProsHas a good portfolio of different brands.

ConsUndergoing a massive reorganization which has resulted with the brands no longer having any autonomy. People have been reassigned to functions they're either not qualified for or really don't want. In time, they'll probably see a mass exodus of key people as they find other jobs that provide more reward and satisfaction.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more in people and quit the endless cost cutting.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

The most backwards place I have ever worked but good money

General Welder (Current Employee)
Cleveland, OH

I have been working at Manitowoc Co. full-time

ProsThe pay is good and there is plenty of overtime. You can work as many hours as you want as long as you work at least 58 a week.

ConsThere is mandatory overtime and you are forced to work at least six days a week. Five days a week you have to work 10 1/2 hours and on the sixth day you can usually work 8. Also, we are always out of parts and constantly changing the production schedule. If you care about the company, you will be frustrated.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease invest in the QAD system and get control of your inventory. Also, get rid of the consultants who are milking the system.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
