    I have been working at Terex full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Terex is committed to safety. This is demonstrated continuously. Additionally, Terex is committed to ethical business practices. There is no pressure to break the rules to make the numbers.

    Cons

    Terex has been in a divestiture mode for over 5 years. It makes it hard to perform with the specter of layoff constantly lurking.

    Advice to Management

    Care more about employee feelings.

    I worked at Terex full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The aftermarket support team is amazing from a talent and professional standpoint, with fantastic leadership all the way up to the director. The engineering groups are very talented but they are mismanaged and under utilized. Benefits are pretty good, great 401K, decent medical, very competitive, even offer paternity leave 10 weeks for mothers 2 for fathers. i worked at multiple positions with different managers,...

    Cons

    The Senior management for the production lines are short sighted, narrow minded, and lack principles. They seem to believe that when a failure happens on a small or large scale, it is the people at the "bottom" of the org chart that are at fault (leads, supervisors, etc.) They constantly preach the "Terex Way Core Values" but don't recognize them as a direction on how to manage business or personal conduct, they see it...

    Advice to Management

    FIND YOUR VALUES! not just the ones that are on the posters in the hallway, do the right thing cause you know its right! Quit protecting unqualified people and promoting them. Start investing in a product line you have. Buying a company, stripping its resources down to a bare husk until you have to layoff the workforce and not investing in the product, so you can sell it later is good method to turn a quick profit...

      I worked at Terex full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      I really enjoyed the people I worked with very diverse. Learned a lot. OT pay checks were nice. HR was always very helpful to me, they listen when I had something to say,

      Cons

      To plan to have no plans. OT was mandatory so seldom do you get Fridays off and even when you did you wouldn’t know until usually the day Thursday afternoon.

      Advice to Management

      Stop leaving peopke hanging until the last minute make a plan and stuck to or at least try to. Some people have personal life’s too.
