    I worked at Manitowoc Co. full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is a good company. It has a small company feel for such a large organization. Very good people in Wisconsin.

    Cons

    The spin off of Food Service (now Welbilt) was a stressful time and resulted in significant changes at the Manitowoc head office. Some good, some not so good.

    Advice to Management

    Hang in there. Stick to the plan. The product is excellent. Focus on the key, quality products.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Great company to work for. The IT department was very effective and strategic! Very strong leadership with a global vision. IT leadership took input from it's employees and was good about communicating the strategy and roadmap to the team. IT was able to add strong value to the business and was recognized as a valuable partner! There were always opportunities to prove ones self and to learn newer technologies.

    Cons

    The business leadership has changed it's strategy/vision on more then one occasion.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with a strategy and give it a chance to take hold.
