    Pros

    Genie has always been referred to me as the Genie family because it is always a happy environment, everyone works well together and everyone knows how important eachothers job is and so are more willing to 'go that extra mile' to gain the end result. Training has always been very good within the company, I have only been back with the company for three months and iI have already been on five training courses and a further two are planned within the next two months.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any cons

    Pros

    Good salery and benefits. But it is not worth it :-(
    Only if you have no other choice

    Cons

    - Team Leader with no Leadership skills whatsoever
    - New hires are left alone and then blamed for mistakes
    - Old system
    - Bullying and Herassment on daily basis
    - Direct managers/team leaders let their team take the fall for their mistakes
    - Feedback/improvement suggestions not appreciared
    - hired in a role and then forced into a complete different role without getting any training. Then being blamed for not be able to manage 2 full time roles at the same time
    - forced to unpaid overtime
    - no pay if you are sick
    - no work/life balance
    - no support for new employees
    - no team work possible

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about why people are leaving after 6 months. Hire Team Leaders with the ability to LEAD and not to bully their team. And understand that people give feedback to make Terex a better place for customers and employees. NOT to annoy their Team Leaders or the upper Management.

    Pros

    Some good people trying to do the right thing

    Cons

    Don't care about employee development, total absence of performance review and related compensation review, too political at some sites

    Need some real manager who know about updated management practice.
