    Pros

    No "cookie-cutter" jobs -- ample room for creativity, as long as you achieve strategic results.
    Great people -- no "prima donnas"
    Mid-size: not too big or small

    Cons

    Can't think of any right now

    Advice to Management

    Keep working to make the company strong!

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Coworkers are great, they are supportive and helpful. Production lines work hard to produce a competitive, quality product. Good benefits - 5% 401k match, medical, dental, vision, and other insurance available. Employee stock purchase available.

    Cons

    Nepotism is high. People placed in roles they are not even close to qualified for, and those that are great at their jobs leave. Or the company shuts down whole departments or divisions and moves them to the south where there is cheaper labor but also lower quality. That's their choice, but they are getting what they are paying for - no experience, but cheap. There is absolutely no loyalty to employees by upper management so why employees stay loyal to Terex is a mystery. This company will be split up and sold off within the next year or two.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the divisions that make you money and see why they work. JLG, the CEO, has no investment in the company and said going in that was an attribute but he clearly has no idea and has appointed others who are clueless to the tasks at hand as well.

    At or below industry average salary and benefits.

    New CEO is determined to develop current talent within the company. Please keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Great people. Good learning experience. Reasonable pay. People that try really hard can get rewarded.

    Cons

    Turbulance = not knowing if you'll be laid off, doing the same job you applied for. Management has a tendency for not being aligned though they are each individually good people and good at what they do...there is a lot of ego involved. The culture is a mix of good and bad. People are great but general motto is that of, "why bother".

    Advice to Management

    Align with each other more often, keep doing well at the safety culture but focus more on quality and accountability.
