      Pros

      Strong local team understands and leads by example meeting or exceeding site goals and objectives. Consistently top performing site when compared across global company. Strong Safety focus with systems designed for solid complete actions showing results. Truly walks the talk on safety. Zero Harm is real. Compensation is solid when compared to local and industry averages. Strong brand recognition.

      Cons

      Company is extremely exposed to the cyclical factors of the market. Immediate down shifts can be felt in less than one day, and up swings cannot be taken advantage of due to weak supply chain management. All function segments lack capable management systems. This lack of systems has company at a severe competitive disadvantage. There are two segments of business at Terex, and these are polar opposites in every aspect. In simplistic terms, one segment is expected to align to corporate strategies, and the other is not held accountable.

      Thanks for taking the time to post such a detailed review! It's good to see that you award Terex 4 Stars and generally recommend the Company. Some of the issues you bring up are endemic to the manufacturing sector - supply chain delays are a major global issue as much of the world gets "back to work" in 2021 - our supply chain and Ops teams have done an amazing job. The Company emphasizes Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in our hiring and development of team members, but not to the exclusion of qualifications - we seek team members who are both diverse (and that means different things in different countries and locations) and the best talent. Thanks again.

      Pros

      Interesting product lines with unique challenges.

      Cons

      During my time noone seemed to be in charge of engineering. Everyone knew we had issues, but no one focused the team on what needed to be done to ensure the future sucesss of the company.

      Pros

      -Safety is priority -Creative freedom for manufacturing engineers -Friendly Management

      Cons

      -Corporate Terex makes executive decisions without consulting with lower tiers which ultimately leads to projects setup for failure. -You never know if you'll have a job next year, corporate is always downsizing and moving assembly lines to low-cost countries. -Pay is always below average -Job retention for engineers is extremely low (Right now we're losing an engineer every week)

      Director, Corporate Communications

      Thank you for your nuanced and thoughtful review. It's good to see you value our culture of safety, and creative freedom for manufacturing engineers. The team has gone through a difficult time, enduring COVID-19 and our industry going "on hold" for much of 2020. Business is coming back in 2021, and we are working to bring in additional engineers and other roles, and we look forward to a strong year and a brighter long term. We hope you will stay the course and share your ideas with your leaders and teams.
