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

    Pros

    Interesting work.
    There's a lot of freedom to work independently.

    Cons

    Production is key. There's no scope to improve the area or place, just get the machines out. Lots of backstabbing from management to the guys on the floor. Evident by the high turnover of staff in operations based roles. The place lacks professionalism and consistency.

    Advice to Management

    The place is getting bigger but the management aren't keeping up to date - this strategy won't work forever and I would strongly advise everyone to avoid an operations job from Terex if applying for one.

    I have been working at Terex full-time

    Pros

    Prospering company with opportunities to work on a global scale.

    Top of the chain - many other companies feed off Terex; many instances of sub contracting on site

    Benefits are reasonable. The company offer a worthwhile share scheme and minimum level 1 health insurance for all employees.

    Opportunities for overtime + early finish on a Friday

    Cons

    The guys working on the ground to produce the products are underappreciated which is reflected in production numbers.

    Alot of the systems used are outdated. Data could be more effectively used to improve business performance. The financial systems used feel repetitive across channels.

    I have been working at Terex full-time

    Pros

    People are friendly and helpful, progression options are okay if a bit uncommon

    Cons

    Extremely disappointing to find that other business segments have much better benefits ie. pension plans. My segment only meets the national minimum requirements for pension contributions, I expected better from such a large corporation.

    Alot of staff turnover but management don't seem bothered, moral is low at the moment and not something a staff day trip will fix.

    Advice to Management

    Management at all levels need regular training on how to interact and engage with staff (proper courses, not online modules). Many act like its their job to shoot down any suggestions from team members. With the calibre of company some team members have come from you'd expect better practices to be implemented, very stuck in the dark ages in that regard.
