Material planner (Former Employee), Coventry – March 14, 2013
Pros: friendly people
Cons: long hours
On the go from 8.30 to 6.00 pm haveing a very varied work load. This was a highly pressurised job, ensuring material at the correct point of use daily. Management usually did not get involved in the day to day running of the business. My co workers were very helpful and polite. The hardest part of the job was covering all evenutalities, even those beyond – more... my control, for example customs, and port strikes. the most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the machines off the assembly line complete, and ready to go onto customers. – less

Pros: hourly rate, hours, support, good employer
Cons: job security has been up and down in this industry
terex is an emplyer who i felt was genuine about its commitments which i can rarely say,as an employee in a stores environment we were always involved in safety and always ecouraged to be involved in projects and were always asked our opinions where changes were needed.

Pros: the factory is clean.
Cons: poor health and safety, poor management structure, factory overcrowded.
There are some good people working at Terex, but unfortunately they get froze out by some of the managers, who are not very professional or competent. There is also an ongoing problem with Health and Safety at the site that the management are refusing to acknowledge.

Senior Project Engineer (Current Employee), Oklahoma City, OK – March 14, 2013
Pros: steady paycheck, good climate control
Cons: industry/market is very slow
A typical day at work used to be busy managing multiple engineering project and design tasks with other engineers and now simply waiting for the next equipment sale and developing concept equipment design. Very quiet in a bad way. The company is exiting the product and looking for a buyer. I've learned to meet the needs of the customer and that working – more... fervently may either be rewarding or not. Its a matter of ethic. Management lives for the quarter and has no real interest in long term development goals, i.e. no R&D budget. Co-workers mostly are concerned about their future while anticipating the next workforce reduction. The hardest part of the job now is believing the company would actually be staffed properly to build product to meet delivery. The most enjoyable part of the job is the potential to design and build product I've created using solid modeling engineering software. Its very rewarding for me to be creative in the engineering environment. – less
on the floor (Former Employee), Watertown – January 2, 2013
Pros: good benefits, company will push make sure you have the equipment you need to do the job.
Cons: top heavy company, devisive employees, terrible schedules, high turnover rate
Your a number here...a cog in the machine...that's it.
Benfits are outstanding...if you stay.
Be prepared to dedicate your life to the company...since you'll never know when you'll have free time. Don't count on a 40hr week...more like 45-60hrs. Scheduling and planning of work is a second thought to the company.
Know your job before starting...your – more... co-workers can't be trusted and management only care to do what it takes to make production quotas not provide a complacent work enviroment.
Many supervisors have no clue what it takes to accomplish a job and certainly don't want to know.
Pay is pretty good for the area because benfits are so cheap...not because your actually getting paid well.
Top management removed without notice or reason and replaced....makes you wonder how much a floor level employee is valued. – less
