    I worked at Manitowoc Co. as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Manitowoc placed me in a position with a great supervisor and offered adequate on job training for my position. Pay was very good and the work environment was relaxed and understanding. Daily work was rewarding overall.

    Cons

    Company hierarchy and management structure seemed disorganized and ineffective. Higher management does not seem to care for employees and often forgets that some important employees even are still working. Regardless of hard work it does not seem that one can grow from starting position.

    Advice to Management

    Realize the value of each of your employees and allow them to feel valued. Terminating 500 employees in the midst of my internship was not a comforting experience.

    Pros

    Great, friendly people. A lot of intelligent individuals that really create a warm environment. People bring in food to share and you can make friends easily.

    Cons

    One of the biggest drawbacks of this company is a lack of investment in the technical side of operations. Engineers are not treated very well and aren't considered that valuable of an asset.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in people that make Manitowoc advance in the market place. Manitowoc claims to be innovative and constantly looking towards the future, prove it!
