Pros

The people are the best assest and there is never a dull day! The culture is inviting and it's family oriented with lots of history. Great opportunities for engineers interested in participating in an organization focused on Lean Manufacturing and Kaizen. The benefits are great and always improving.

Communication from leadership and having people in the appropriate leadership positions. The economy hit Terex hard and resulted in RIFs. It will be a difficult challenge to recover from, but many former employeesv are jumping at the opportunity to come back.

Develop your teams and spend the time to give solid value added reviews. Encourage people to grow and give them projects to work on to advance their skills.

    Pros

    The pay at Terex wass relatively high for interns, it's about doubled minimum wage. Co-workers were very friendly and willing to help you.

    Cons

    The intern program was very unorganized. My manager was busy with his own work the whole time I was there. I basically had to find things to do everyday.

    Advice to Management

    The management at Terex should really prepare their employees for interns to come in. There's really no point to have an internship program when no one is aware of it.
