    Pros

    Company where you have an opportunity to make a difference. Very global so can interact with many different cultures. Down to earth environment focused on results, but still caring about people. Value-based approach; leaders with great integrity.

    Cons

    Need to be prepared for cyclical nature of the business.

    Current Employee - Engineer in Redmond, WA

    I have been working at Terex full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Work life balance 4/10's and everyone is pretty much held to that even salary. You work on occasion every other Friday. So you might work 45 hours on average a week.

    Cons

    Everyone works in silos, therefore a lot of working against each other.

    Poor communication

    A company which makes decisions on the production floor not on data but just what people think. Very reactive and not proactive.

    We just had 500 people laid off in the AWP division and people are really concerned. There are major layoffs around every 5-8 years. Management says no more that they know of but they cannot tell everyone that there will be more to come, it would make an even more stressed out environment.

    Current Employee - Manufacturing Engineer III in Moses Lake, WA

    I have been working at Terex full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers are the best. Pay is pretty good. Work is varied and fast paced. Benefits are average to industry. Opportunities to make a difference.

    Cons

    Poor work life balance.
    Engineers required to work a rotating graveyard 6 weeks a year.
    Sporadic plant meetings and announcements things that are not true. Leadership is mostly posturing to be noticed by the Redmond leadership.
    Production worked overtime for the first half of the year, then massive layoffs when the stock dropped after 2nd quarter results were announced (2014)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While the stock price is important, without the people who build units, the people whose ideas make Genie a brand to be desired, you have nothing. Try focusing on morale and watch the stock price climb as a result.

    Pros

    Ability to work in a small town and small plant which is wonderful.

    Cons

    HR in the plant I work at treats the employees like they are a nuisance to her. Multiple errors in the new employee set up process, some were intentional.

    Many opportunities for growth and development, but bureaucracy and poor support will hold you back.

    Current Employee - Manufacturing Engineer I in Redmond, WA

    I have been working at Terex full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Most co-workers are hard working and ready to help you solve issues. Great opportunity to gain experience in lean manufacturing. Benefits are very good, including 401k, stock options, profit sharing, two week personal time, and Passport discount card. The quality of training can vary greatly depending on what department you go into.

    Cons

    Management is knowledgeable, but disconnected from work force and unresponsive. Support structure is poor and bureaucracy can be a great hinderance. There is a revolving door of managers, so you will constantly be dealing with a new boss with different standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Someone needs to stick around long enough to understand their work force.

    Pros

    Excellent low cost benefits, great work life balance, most of the team members are are really good people!

    Cons

    The management lacks in common sense and logic most of the time. Probably driven from the top for the typical big company bureaucracy and legal reasons......

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reverse the above comment if possible. STOP leading and managing all the time via the TEREX managers text book. Lead from your mind, heart and experience..... You don't always have to be sheep.
