    I worked at Terex as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The schedule was very good. I worked 4/10, so always had the three days weekend, and the some times you will have 5 days off when holidays that fall on Monday.

    Cons

    You have to work very hard to make it there. They loaded you with a lot of works. They only hire through temp agency, so very little benefits until you get to be direct hire.

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

    Pros

    Good hours (for most employees) and fair compensation for OT on hourly workers.

    Cons

    Ever-shifting initiatives with insufficient resources to implement, siloed departments not seeing costs affecting eachother

    Advice to Management

    Cut failing business segments. Invest in engineering consistently in segments you commit to if you wish to be the market leader.

    "CEO is interested in bottom line only, he was brought in to cut jobs and that's exactly what he's doing."

    I worked at Terex full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Coworkers are great, they are supportive and helpful. Production lines work hard to produce a competitive, quality product. Good benefits - 5% 401k match, medical, dental, vision, and other insurance available. Employee stock purchase available.

    Cons

    Nepotism is high. People placed in roles they are not even close to qualified for, and those that are great at their jobs leave. Or the company shuts down whole departments or divisions and moves them to the south where there is cheaper labor but also lower quality. That's their choice, but they are getting what they are paying for - no experience, but cheap. There is absolutely no loyalty to employees by upper management so why employees stay loyal to Terex is a mystery. This company will be split up and sold off within the next year or two.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the divisions that make you money and see why they work. JLG, the CEO, has no investment in the company and said going in that was an attribute but he clearly has no idea and has appointed others who are clueless to the tasks at hand as well.

    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

    Pretty decent development opportunities within and a good team collaboration environment. Plenty of vacation/sick time but it accrues as time goes on.

    Cons

    Business is very cyclical, layoffs every few years so job security is an issue

    Advice to Management

    Look at the bigger picture when you are choosing who to lay off

    I worked at Terex full-time

    Pros

    The only pros i can think of is their medical/dental/vision benefit is not bad compare to other companies in the area.

    Cons

    1) High turnover: Our team had about 20 people. 6 people left through layoff ( but they are happy to leave) and another 2 are gone later.
    2) Limited resource: data quality is a big concern. Company is not willing to make investment on IT. Lots of manual operation. For example, customer rebate report, 100M, 40,000 rows, from column A to CJ, all manual calculation. Big errors likely
    3) Poor management: My management only focus on what you can do, not on where you want to grow your career. Lots of close door meetings within managers. If you are an analyst, you do not have any chance to attend any of these meetings
    4) The company growth is poor; Terex will be sold to another company because of its limited product offers and industry specific focus
    5) Too much "whispered talk. The team looks solid. But lot of people hate each other. Ladies always whisper at work
    6) Work Life balance sucks, specially during month end close

    I worked at Terex full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Solid management and engineering/production growth opportunities at business segment level. Global manufacturer, publicly traded company with market leaders in aerial work platforms, materials processing and material handling and port solutions segments. Pride in quality, cost, delivery, customer care.

    Cons

    Cyclical nature of industry. Macro conditions and foreign exchange impact this industrial as with any industrials. Some interesting opportunities or risks are being presented to the Company.
