    Pros

    My experience with Terex has been very positive throughout the first six months of employment. If you've ever been new to an organization you know what kind of challenge I'm talking about. Every hurdle has been met with a solutions based mindset with an attitude of "we can do this". I would recommend Terex to anyone who wanted to work in a place where they can realize their full potential.

    Cons

    Operational training can be a little more thorough. However, Terex has a way of hiring competent people that can handle the challenge of adversity.

    I worked at Terex (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits Pay scale on par within the industry. Strong financial company

    Cons

    Bonus system way to subjective. Poor communication between upper management and middle management. would rather layoff people than work to expand the business

    Advice to Management

    Look inside to promote as opposed to outside. Lean practices don't work in all manufacturing environments sometimes you have to sell the way your customer wants to buy..

    I have been working at Terex full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you enjoy hands on work this is the place for you. Pay is decent for 4-10s but not so well working between 50-60 hours.

    Cons

    When interviewing with the company and accepting a position they stated that I would be working 4-10's with an occasional Friday overtime that is un-paid. For almost the last 6 months I have been working 3-4 Fridays a month with no overtime pay.

    Advice to Management

    In the last year in North Campus at Genie our buildings have went downhill in a extreme way since the new management. We were all told that this management would make the building much better, but in reality things have got much worse and we are losing key team members because of it. As well we now care more about delivery than quality.

    I worked at Terex full-time

    Pros

    Local coworkers are great! Benefit package is good

    Cons

    Routinely hog-tied by corporate policy or lack of direction. No consistency. Poor labor relations; the HR/Leadership team has totally dropped the ball.

    Advice to Management

    So happy for the team in Grand Rapids that they has Terex corporate people out of the way...their chance for success just increased 1000%
