Excellent Company to Work For in Interesting Markets
Regional Sales Manager (Former Employee), Westport, CTAugust 25, 2014
Pros: interesting products and markets
Cons: company could use stronger middle management
I was brought in to turn around a core market that was unfortunately being neglected and had dwindled to almost zero percent new sales as a result. I built credibility with key target account executives and started earning their trust and business. Within 3 years we won 75% market share with the core product at target national accounts. It took a team – more... effort and a new focus on customer service and support. It was rewarding to improve the company's reputation and earn repeat sales as a result of individual and team efforts. The most challenging part of the job was working to keep the new branch company management focused on the customer needs. Product and aftermarket service parts availability during factory consolidation efforts hurt the company but Terex is a great company and will continue to improve as they integrate companies into new divisions. – less

Good Ol' Boy mentality
Current Employee (Current Employee), Moses LakeJune 21, 2014
Pros: compensation.
Cons: hr--do not trust them they gossip, leadership, work life balance, no creativity, micro management
Other than the compensation and benefits, if you are not golfing with the Plant Director you can count yourself out of any promotional opportunity. The HR Manager there is a complete waste of space. HR is never available to assist employees and help develop them. They are more interested in traveling in their flock of 6 and gossip about people. Managers – more... there micormanage everything you do and do not foster an innovative culture. Corporate needs to come in and talk to employees to get the real life persective of how things are Managed and make some serious leadership changes. Employees are miserable, but because the job market in Moses Lake is not that great, are forced to stay in order to provide for their families. Corporate needs to do a better job looking into the way employees are treated and how they are throwing money away by paying Managers that are not Leading. They are paying 6 HR employees to flock together and be completely unavailable. Do not work here. There are other plants coming into Moses Lake. Consider those before working there. – less

Genie Terex in Redmond, WA is a poor place to work!
Assembler Mechanic (Current Employee), Redmond, WAJanuary 11, 2014
Cons: bad people and hard work.
More than half of the people in my new employee orientation class quit after 2 weeks working there. Genie in Redmond is a very cheap place, because every things ( rubber gloves, and ect) is lock up. If you need somethings, you have to ask the supervisor to get it for you. The employee there are very lousy, they're always watching you. And the working – more... environment at Genie is bad, you have to work very fast and hard. I had to stand on my feet for 10 hours a day. Genie in Redmond is always hiring, and they don't hire direct. You have to go through Aerotek, so don't come to Genie unless you are desperate finding work. – less

Productive with many situations that present healthy challenges
Leadman (Former Employee), Waverly, IADecember 25, 2013
Pros: time off and no mandatory overtime for union workers
Cons: fluctuates drastically year to year.
A typical day at work as briefing other team members of goals to be met though out the day. Management was a huge part of why Terex was a very fun but challenging place to work. The hardest part of the job were the challenges that were beyond our control in regards to suppliers. For the most part Terex used the 14 leadership traits and 11 leadership – more... principals. – less

Great place to work, for those are dedicated to working!
Assembly Line Associate (Former Employee), Moses Lake, WADecember 6, 2013
Pros: a company whom provides knowledge, training, and skills to those willing to learn and use what they've learned.
Cons: nothing to say here!
It can be very rewarding, when achieving the daily projective goal!
It can also be very disheartening, when damage was done to a part, and have to wait for more replacement parts to arrive to achieve the goals.
What I learned, was communication was Priority 1,(say a part was out, escalate the deficit, for priority order.)
Management, was a great booster – more... to the esteem of all employees.
Co-workers, were great as friends, and for being there to help out when help was needed.
The hardest part of the job, has to be the end of the day!
The most enjoyable part, has to be the start of a new day! Seeing old friends as if they were "new" friends to be met. – less

Material Handler/Forklift Operator (Former Employee), Rock Hill, SCDecember 2, 2013
Pros: hard work, and enjoyable smiles
Cons: false judgements
A typical day at work, is to arrive before time of work begins, i've learned to be prompt at all times, be trustworthy, to be a team player, and to stay loyal. The hardest part of the job is to continually give give 100% of your mind, body, and soul and then be laid off from an employer. The most enjoyable part of working with a job, is to grow waxingly – more... with them and expand prepetually. – less

Great company to work for.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee), Westport, ConnecticutNovember 18, 2013
Pros: management style
Cons: benefits
I began employment with Terex just before a huge growing phase. Management gave me many projects with very little supervision. Management style was to empower their employees to go to the next level.

Stayed with Terex for 7 years due to poor economy I was affected in the 3rd round of lay-offs otherwise I would still be employed there.
