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

    Pros

    Good benefits and great co-workers

    Cons

    No work life balance - long hours, mandatory weekends and holidays. Only certain holidays worked will have a float day given.

    Training -here is none unless your team is well established and you are taking a job that the person who used to do it is still there to help you which is rare. Management prefer to let you figure it out with an SOP, make mistakes, and then ding you for them rather than give you adequate time and training to help you succeed.

    Advancement not likely unless you have maximum talent and can learn on the fly.

    Pay - want maximum talent for minimal wages. Will find away to minimize your merit pay and bonuses.

    Team members on same team are not held to same standards by accounting manager.

    HR - poor

    Advice to Management

    Develop a good training plan for incoming employees instead of assuming that your accounting leads/managers have plans in place or even train. Listen next time your employees tell you in a survey that their biggest barriers on their jobs are communication and training. They don't mean Terex training videos which have little value added for individual team members jobs or group sessions on different topics.

    Define in writing your expectations and definitions. Make sure it crosses all teams and find a way to hold accounting managers to that standard instead of fudging on some team members metrics while tracking other team members down to the tiniest infarction.

    Management should follow Terex values instead of finding scapegoats for their own lack of incompetence.
