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

    Pros

    Great benefits. Usually not too long of hours.

    Cons

    Continuously changing statements about where the future of the industry and the facility are heading. Also a rash of facility closings in this business segment have created an environment where everyone should be afraid for the stability of their position.

    Advice to Management

    Stop closing facilities to consolidate production. Also, be on the look out for people who might have some un-utilized talents.

    Opportunity to affect change exists, solid benefits package, some great people who really care about the company. Genie products is only solid brand.

    Advice to Management

    Hire outsiders with fresh perspectives as senior leaders. Accountability needs to be improved at all levels, retain solid performers. Streamline internal process across business units.
