    Great mobility between functions/businesses, strong desire to improve across the organization. Small company feel. Customer focus.

    The people at Terex are great, made a lot of friends and build strong networking relationships. Lots of smart people. Summer hours and casual Fridays were a plus!

    Pay is not competitive with the market, lots of politics, and no space for growth.

    Pros

    Many good people working for the Company.

    They don't treat the people very well at the Grand Rapids, MN facility I am familiar with.

    Start to do more than provide lip service to the idea that "people are your most valuable asset".

    I worked at Terex as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Nice co-workers, decent pay.

    Cons

    It is evident that management is under a great deal of stress. They cascade their unrealistic expectations to their subordinates. Old school management style.
