    Good culture and great people to work with

    Mechanical Engineer II (Current Employee) Redmond, WA

    ProsThere are a lot of opportunities to work cross-functionally and work with some very talented people. There are a lot of people that have worked at Genie for a long time, and a lot of people that leave end up coming back. I think that is a testament to the company culture in Redmond.

    ConsThe production teams drive very hard. Often times this creates a lot of turnover in assembly and support teams. Salaries are generally lower than other companies in the area.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStrive to improve morale and ultimately quality on the shop floor.

    Freedom to grow with a risk tolerant culture and admirable view toward work-life balance.

    Senior Project Engineer (Current Employee) Redmond, WA

    ProsOverall positive company culture with driven employees but without the cut-throat atmosphere found in some business cultures. Top down strong attitude of ensuring positive work-life balance.

    ConsVery risk tolerant culture lends to many ready, shoot, aim scenarios. Must be comfortable with ambiguity and flexible with change.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate the 3-5yr vision for the company & let directors/managers develop plans to support.

    Another holding company to benefit shareholders

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Redmond, WA

    ProsEmployment is reasonably stable, for permanent employees. They provide competitive health insurance benefits. Education benefits may be provided, but availability depends heavily on the personality of your manager.

    ConsLow pay for given job functions. Poor prospects for advancement. The company culture is promoted as outwardly positive, but is backwards and oppressive in practice. Although there is a performance bonus, it is so tiny as to be nearly pointless for non-managers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management prides itself on their corporate culture, but at the ground level ambition and innovation are consistently stamped out, and business decisions are made based on uninformed intuition and personality.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Production Supervisor (Current Employee) Redmond, WA

    ProsTerex is a family oriented company that consistently strives for improvement in safety, quality and servant leadership. Our culture enables us as a company to provide our customers with high quality products around the world. I am proud to be part of the Terex team.

    Pretty good place to work.

    Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) Redmond, WA

    ProsThey value their people and their work.
    Like to promote from within and will take people back two and three times.

    ConsPay raises have been small in the last couple of years.
    Too many engineers sitting around trying to reinvent the wheel.
    Sometimes managers like to operate like it's a fiefdom.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet's focus less on 'lean' and more on just producing the product.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
