    I have been working at Terex full-time

    Pros

    Great coworkers, decent benefits, and great training opportunities.

    Cons

    Managers dont follow what they preach, they dont like change, there is a lot of favoritism. Although it is advertised as 4/10 you often work fridays. Pay is what the industry standard is. If youre a minority, the odds are against you for progress in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others how you would like tk be treated. Something their parents forgot to teach them

    I have been working at Terex full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Always open to new ideas. Job security. Dynamic work environment. Many interesting people to work with.

    Cons

    Short sighted machine maintenance, organization has poor understanding of costs (focus is on BOM cost, not cost to manufacture/process), No enforcement of standards. Salaried engineers required to work 50+ hr weeks 80% of the year. Projects not managed.

    Advice to Management

    Understand/Establish piece cost. Incentivize talented engineers, not low performers. Manage Projects using Project Management Institute standards. Encourage career development.

    I have been working at Terex full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most co-workers are hard working and ready to help you solve issues. Great opportunity to gain experience in lean manufacturing. Benefits are very good, including 401k, stock options, profit sharing, two week personal time, and Passport discount card. The quality of training can vary greatly depending on what department you go into.

    Cons

    Management is knowledgeable, but disconnected from work force and unresponsive. Support structure is poor and bureaucracy can be a great hinderance. There is a revolving door of managers, so you will constantly be dealing with a new boss with different standards.

    Advice to Management

    Someone needs to stick around long enough to understand their work force.

    Pros

    The tasks that they gave me were all pretty simple. I did not have to think too much to complete my project. It's really easy to finish your project.. And, the people over there are friendly..

    Cons

    I feel that the project does not really challenge me well. I feel that I can do more than what I currently do. Over the past six months, I became bored of what I do... Really not challenging.

    Advice to Management

    You should separate the task and responsibility of a technician and an engineer
