    Pros

    Pay and benefits. Publicly traded company.

    Cons

    Management does not hold each other accountable. Lack of direction from leadership since retirement of Ron Defeo.

    Management does not value the hourly employee's.

    Advice to Management

    Hold managers accountable, reject constant excuses and blame mentality. Verify information on documents from managers to confirm its accuracy.

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

    Pros

    I have a great team and we have a great environment. Everyone from technicians to managers to the office manager pulls for sales. Terex Services views sales and customer service as a responsibility of the team - not just one individual.

    Great starting pay and benefits. You get a company vehicle - brand new Ford F150 XLT with company gas card. It's really nice.

    They really treat their employees as valuable assets. I've received calls from the highest levels of management within my division - praising me and welcoming to the company.

    Cons

    If you're in a poor branch, you will have an uphill struggle. It's important to have good team members as it's really a team sport. Finding qualified technicians is very hard. There are times when you don't have enough qualified help.

    As a sales person, you wish there were opportunities to make big dollars for landing big accounts. You won't find that here. You get paid on every dollar of revenue but it's a very small percentage. But that has it's pros too.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing so far. I haven't been with the company for too long. Everything has been great.

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

    Pros

    Pay and Benefits are comparable with other companies; health plan is really good. Safety environment seems to be consistent with industry standards.

    Cons

    No ife-work balance. Company has values and provides lip service to them but doesn't followthrough on them. Management is management but no leadership exist. Told "contract employees" their jobs were secure then 2 weeks later lay off over 100; number has grown since then. Employees are encouraged to make quality, safety improvements - however unless management can make it "thier" idea suggestions are ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Be leaders and show loyalty that you ask for to the employees. Organization will only be mediocore as long as the Good Ole Boy Network exist within the company.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are the reason to work here. The work is generally simple and not challenging, but at this time in my life i'm not looking for challenging work. Iw ant good pay and benefits and time with my family. Terex is a good place to work if that's what's important to you. here is room for Growth too, if you work hard and are interested in that kind of thing.

    Cons

    See above. There isn't a challenge in the work that I do, which can sometimes cause me to be a little disengaged. Also, this is one of the smaller companies in this industry, and it's not always great to be the underdog.

    Advice to Management

    Try to find more ways to compete with the big boys out there. It will make for a stronger future.

    "Terex: Good company, tough economic times"

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Terex better than their competition. Company strong financially. CEO Ron DeFeo very smart, well respected. Lots of autonomy at remote sites, maybe too much autonomy?

    Cons

    Seems that good performance is less important than tight relationships with "the right people"

    Advice to Management

    Many cost reduction opportunities still exist. More attention needed on contract negotiation and procurement. This difficult economy allows for aggressive negotiating. Consolidate companywide purchases for volume discounts. Headcount reduction isnt the only way to reduce your costs. Look around, be more creative, STRONGLY suggest you re-visit your IT costs, services, and contracts.
