    I worked at Terex full-time

    Pros

    Implementing lean manufacturing and the Terex Production System. Lots of long term experienced employees with high technical skills. Improving safety and union relations. Had excellent environmental and chemical safety. This site designed the cranes that were manufactured here. Could be proud of the products made here.

    Cons

    New management decimated site management and engineering in waves of demotions and semi-friendly partings of the ways. Terex includes many sites and products and decisions are often out of the hands of the locations - not uncommon, just a barrier to excellence. Saw a lot of people pull of stakes to work here and the job was not as promised, e.g 2nd shift supervisor, vs 1st shift as promised.
