    Great opportunity

    ConsThe business cycle affects Terex a great deal, so it feels like "feast or famine"

    Missing Terex

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat Executive Leadership that sees the future of the industry.

    ConsGot laid off in 2011 by Terex. Yes, they took care of me; however, I have found that I had to take over two steps back and take a HUGE pay cut. I had to move to another state.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember the employees that actually saved you millions while they were there instead of laying the off.
