    I have been working at Terex full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Terex is a family oriented company that consistently strives for improvement in safety, quality and servant leadership. Our culture enables us as a company to provide our customers with high quality products around the world. I am proud to be part of the Terex team.

    Cons

    Need better choices of food in the cafeteria. Although there are healthy choices for breakfast and lunch, we should look to phase out the foods high in salt and fat.

    Advice to Management

    Thorough communication is a necessity in creating a culture in which all team members operate by the same standards.

    Pros

    Fortune 500 company
    Multiple business segments under one roof
    Lots of cosmetic upgrades to the facility
    Four day work week

    Cons

    Poor upper-level management
    Shift starts too early (attendance issues plant wide)
    Not enough focus on safety

    Advice to Management

    Follow your daily metrics in the order of importance. Safety comes first for a reason. Also, don't be afraid to say "I don't know." Blurting out an answer just to have an answer confuses team members and generates unnecessary rumors. Report accurate data and make the team members feel valued.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are the main reasons for working for Terex. There are also opportunities for growth however the economy has placed a bit of a damper on that.

    Cons

    There is uncertainty within the industry due to the economy. Employee morale is low and growth opportunities have stalled. Recognition and feedback has suffered due to focus on surviving the economic slow down.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise senior management to not lose focus on employee morale. Economic times are hard but the workforce is the heartbeat of any organization. Reductions in force and short work weeks have team members looking over their shoulders and worried about the stability of the company. Reductions in force and work hours are not the only sources for cost downs and cutbacks. I urge the company to evaluate the market and economic conditions and consider postponing expensive overseas initiatives and expansions. The employees I have had the opportunity to speak with have stated that they are ready to walk away and find work elsewhere if the company continues with whittling away at the workforce.
