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

    Pros

    Terex's GBS Center in Waverly, IA is a finance hub in small town Iowa that offers multiple levels of career advancement potential without having to move. ~100 finance professionals work in our location. Continuous Improvement and taking initiative is valued. New flex work programs make balancing work and life even easier. Fair compensation. Leadership at the top of the company has changed the tone and direction in a good way.

    Cons

    Different segments of the company operate in different ways making it a challenge to deliver efficient and consistent internal and external services in some cases. The pace of change can be exciting, but also at times intimidating.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to differentiate recognition and awards for high performers.

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

    Pros

    Focused on continually improving the work, workplace, morale, and opportunities. Compared to most accounting jobs the work/life balance is excellent, and there is no "busy season".

    Cons

    Some of the usual large company bureaucracy and "1 size fits all" policies. Being publicly traded means opportunity, but can require more work/hours at quarter ends.

    Advice to Management

    Continue focusing on employee morale and workplace culture- it has gone a long way in the past couple of years.

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

    Pros

    Terex promotes a positive team environment, with active support from management. Flexible work arrangements are available, from working offsite to changing daily work hours to fit lifestyle. Many career growth opportunities available at this site, as well as other sites around the globe. Mentoring programs, business acumen and other initiatives strive to make employees well rounded and able to achieve personal professional goals. Good benefit packages and continuous work to be industry leader in leave times and flexibility. Opportunities to travel and explore tax, auditing and financial analysis all available. You can really make the most of your career and thrive here if you are willing to put in the time and effort!

    Cons

    Flexibility within close periods can be difficult(about 4 days a month, can be long working days depending on issues that arise). Training relies heavily on managers; depending on your managers work load, you may be learning on the fly more than not.

    Advice to Management

    Continue bringing positive initiatives throughout our corporation to our site.

    Pros

    All the Pro's are gone .. See Cons

    Cons

    Forced Overtime, Horrible Management, Lots of injuries happening due to forced overtime, High Attrition Rate, Temps start @5:00 am go to lunch and never come back. (what's that tell you) . Terex preaches family values only if doesn't affect their bottom line. I would like to see John Garrison show up unannounced so he could see what really going on. His arrivals are announced so they put on a dog and pony show (you get voluntold if there are no volunteers to come paint the floor ). I have family I never get to see due to the 12 hour Plus days. The HR Dept. in useless , Supervisors consistently remind their employees that HR has their back. This place has really gone down hill! Stay away if you can avoid it.

    Advice to Management

    Get out and give someone else a try.

    I worked at Terex full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Genie was a great environment, a company who cared about its team members. Big changes in the past year or two with new CEO. Lots of layoffs, terminations, "restructuring" (ie: no replacements) and changes to mirror parent company Terex's ways. It isn't working for Genie, who has been Terex's top money making segment.

    Cons

    Instability within the company makes it hard to fill positions. Parent company closed the local payroll office in Redmond, moving the functions to Mississippi. Majority of the employees are located in WA state. Whole departments laid off with no clear plan of "restructuring."

    Advice to Management

    Company doesn't feel so good anymore. Spent many years at Genie and was proud to say I worked there. Towards the end, I wasn't proud anymore.
