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

    Pros

    The employees are great and easy to work with for the most part. Pay seems reasonable. I enjoy the type of projects I get to work on. Future growth opportunities exist.

    Cons

    Directions are quick to change. Daily "fires" easily become the major focus over long term development. Different teams often operate independent of each other while I believe there could be more cross functional teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on developing a plant to work more as a team and align to common goals. Live and act by the TBS principles we know over short term gains.


  2. "Good culture and variety of work, but early start time"

    Pros

    Good culture, hands on projects, good variety of work as manufacturing engineer. Some flexibility in project timelines and project selection.

    Cons

    Hours. Start time at 5 or 5:30 with 4 ten hour days unless it's busy season where you'll work OT Friday's. Line support can be repetitive.

    Pros

    Great company to start your engineering career at. A lot of freedom to design your own machines/projects while also learning how to support the production line. There is time for personal development, but you'll need to decide that yourself and find it on your own.

    Cons

    Work gets repetitive and sometimes stagnant after a couple years. Not a lot of mentoring. Most people have to figure things out on their own.
