    I worked at Terex full-time

    Pros

    The only pros i can think of is their medical/dental/vision benefit is not bad compare to other companies in the area.

    Cons

    1) High turnover: Our team had about 20 people. 6 people left through layoff ( but they are happy to leave) and another 2 are gone later.
    2) Limited resource: data quality is a big concern. Company is not willing to make investment on IT. Lots of manual operation. For example, customer rebate report, 100M, 40,000 rows, from column A to CJ, all manual calculation. Big errors likely
    3) Poor management: My management only focus on what you can do, not on where you want to grow your career. Lots of close door meetings within managers. If you are an analyst, you do not have any chance to attend any of these meetings
    4) The company growth is poor; Terex will be sold to another company because of its limited product offers and industry specific focus
    5) Too much "whispered talk. The team looks solid. But lot of people hate each other. Ladies always whisper at work
    6) Work Life balance sucks, specially during month end close
