Pros

Manitiwoc provides many opportunities to work abroad, as a large portion of its business is done outside of the US.

Cons

No diversity. Many employees have been working for the company for an extensive amount of time, and have become very resistant to any change or new ideas.

Advice to Management

When creating project teams or committees, increase the candidate pool from which you choose these candidates. Most internal committees are comprised of the same core group of people. Not because they are experts in their field(s), but because they have worked together for many years and continually nominate each other. Ensure that all core ethical standards are enforced throughout the company... domestically and internationally.

    I worked at Manitowoc Co. full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people, collaborative atmosphere, high quality products, respected brands.

    Cons

    Weak management. Too many new executives who are friends of the CEO but don't understand the Cranes business. Strategy is to shrink the company to success; not very inspiring. Too many capable committed employees have been laid off due to leadership missteps. I would discourage people from joining this company.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a clear vision of an attractive future beyond rightsizing. Quit blaming outside conditions and look internally for the source of your problems.
