    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.

    Pros

    Great culture, great people, flexible schedule. There is really a feeling of everyone trying to help each other. Very professional, yet comfortable.

    Cons

    Due to the size of the company you really don't get to know people at other sites.

    Pros

    Relatively good pay compared to same kind of work in Seattle and east side areas. Decent benefits, if they decide to hire you.

    Cons

    Horrible working conditions, temperature during summer 95-100 degrees, they don't want to invest in new air conditioning system, medieval equipment, overworked (50-60 hours a week). Absolutely no communications with workers, sometimes they let you standing there waiting for parts without telling you anything. FORGET YOUR PRIVATE LIFE, they act like they own you!

    Pros

    - High (ish) base pay for just a high school diploma requirement - Job security if you can maintain production / work quality required

    Cons

    -Education benefits only awarded to job-related degrees, making trying to switch careers or advance them EXTREMELY difficult (try breaking into IT from production...) - Pay raises are extremely slow and unless you're maxed out, don't match cost of living - Employees are asked to work in positions without pay raises / promotions to match for years at a time (I worked 1 year doing software development, then told I wasn't allowed to, without a pay raise or promotion during that time) - Communication is horrible between departments and even same-office co-workers.

    Advice to Management

    Help your employees develop their careers. If you don't invest in them, they're not going to invest in helping the company.

    Pros

    Laid-back atmosphere, clear chain of command, not many levels of management

    Cons

    Lack of technical expertise, all the bureaucracy of a larger company, low pay considering the cost of living in the Seattle area, very little work to do (and very little expected).

    Pros

    My location is in a less than ideal spot and is going through many changes at a rapid pace. It's great to be able to see the positive changes as the site grows.

    Cons

    There are a lot of inexperienced individuals on site that make it difficult for everyone else. They are still learning their roles within the company, but doing so in such a way that negativity flourishes.

    Advice to Management

    Listen! Communication is key. Not only should you lead, but you also need to listen! There is a lot of experience on site that is taken for granted quite frequently.

    Pros

    Broad and diverse business, with tons of opportunities to contribute to improvement. International footprint provides for cultural learning and collaboration on global business.

    Cons

    The senior individual contributor can get overlooked sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Make a plan and stick to it.
