    I have been working at Terex full-time

    Pros

    A member of Inc. Magazine's Just 100. They listen to their customers, respond to requests and deliver solutions with speed.

    Cons

    Attitudes, commitment, training and results. Like other organizations, the things we do well, we do very well. The other things need improvement.

    Advice to Management

    Engage with the team most days, not just during quarterly meetings. There is a need to gain strength with the team.

    I worked at Terex full-time

    Pros

    1. Compensation and benefits are pretty good compared for the local marketplace.
    2. Terex Way values provide a good framework for operation, although their real-world application highly varies widely by facility and local leader.
    3. An outstanding group of co-workers who will do whatever is asked but who have been through a lot.

    Cons

    1. There is little or no room for growth in this company. If you want to advance, get some experience and move on.
    2. There is little sense of a common direction. Each facility operates in its own world. Too many silos, and too much empire-building.
    3. Too much uncertainty undermines employees' performance, their attitude, and ultimately their health.

    Advice to Management

    1. People may run faster when scared, but they run in the right direction when they know where they are going and why. Clarity, clarity, clarity.
    2. Decide one and for all if Terex is one company or a bunch of smaller ones, and act accordingly.
    3. You can't sprint a marathon.

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

    Pros

    Good paid, some former supervisors and leader were awesome. A lot overtime if your dying for great paycheck . Car pool and van pool don't help at all. They have to try another car if some employees can stay for an hour more overtime . Seems weird . Parking lots always make employees have hard time

    Cons

    Task time kill all of employees. Lot of people pretend to work or try to keep busy. HR have no way to keep track with them. Lot of bad habits still from e-sub. Weaken leadership, one team lead works so hard, deal with lot of problems since a few leaders stay there and good chatting.... if possible, install some cameras to see how well the employees . Verbal Harassments occurs everyday. Not a good place to work even you can meet lot of different cultures there. Keep track to senior employees, stay there for a while to see how good they are. Lazy, cheating, haven't done the jobs from that station. Especially after the last break of the Thur& Fri, because they know they won't be there at the station . Haven't prepared anything or work hard until someone take that station. Very bad idea if supervisor stay there, they all smart to keep busy as more as they pretend to be .

    Advice to Management

    Collin, John, awesome supervisors. Some just left to get better careers out of Genie.

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

    Pros

    Flexible if you need time off. Good overall benefits, Vacation & PTO.

    Cons

    No training. Not enough staff, everyone has way too much to do with no help. There is no team like atmosphere- each dept works in conflict with each other. Managers do not help- just attend meetings & conference calls. Pay is very low & merit raises are extremely low.

    Advice to Management

    Work with the staff not just tell us what to do. Need to actually train when implementing new policies. Need to improve atmosphere in the office. Most people hate coming into work.
