    I worked at Terex full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay good hours

    Cons

    Women on the shop floor are easily disposed of. Unless you’re in the office or been there for a very long time. If someone in a higher position doesn’t like you for any reason you’re very easy to get rid of.

    Advice to Management

    Just because someone has been a lead for so many years doesn’t mean they’re right. Experienced countless number of sexual discrimination and harassment and no one would even listen to me

    I worked at Terex full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    For as much management training that was offered - a strong and direct management skill set is lacking in most managers. I was very disappointed to learn that the person I worked for had never had a direct report. A person who had never managed anyone before and who was concerned for her own job, made for a doomed relationship.

    Cons

    I think management skills could be honed in person rather than on a e-learning system. Management takes interaction. In person training is only offered to a select few. Instead, it should be offered across the organization.

    In addition, I think there is a prejudice by older workers that only 23 year olds right out of school know about computers and have fresh ideas. They don't look to the entire staff. It's pretty surprising to see seemingly intelligent people so youth obsessed and worshipping the advise of someone in their first job. Not that they should be discounted. But, rather seen as another perspective, among many. It was kind of an ageism that they professed not to have, but was so obvious.

    In addition, the company has not been stable and has shed portions of business. So, the climate is one of trepidation and uncertainty for the direction and health of the business and fear.

    Advice to Management

    Get some in person management training. And, I mean everyone. Even the senior staff who smugly think they've been working for years and have it covered. Everyone should be learning and growing as professionals.

    Thank you for writing. It is not uncommon for managers to take on new roles with little to no prior experience managing direct reports – otherwise, how would new managers rise through the ranks? We... More

    Cons

    early start time, hard core attendance policy, super hot in the summer super cold in the winter. the food from the café is really good

    Advice to Management

    clear up expectations. hold people to only expecting that the things on the lists are to be what is being done. its too often you are asked to do one thing as your only job and then sent a million ways to do a millions things and then find your self in hot water due to not getting the main thing done.
