    Pros

    Genie has always been referred to me as the Genie family because it is always a happy environment, everyone works well together and everyone knows how important eachothers job is and so are more willing to 'go that extra mile' to gain the end result. Training has always been very good within the company, I have only been back with the company for three months and iI have already been on five training courses and a further two are planned within the next two months.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any cons

    Pros

    Coworkers are the best. Pay is pretty good. Work is varied and fast paced. Benefits are average to industry. Opportunities to make a difference.

    Cons

    Poor work life balance.
    Engineers required to work a rotating graveyard 6 weeks a year.
    Sporadic plant meetings and announcements things that are not true. Leadership is mostly posturing to be noticed by the Redmond leadership.
    Production worked overtime for the first half of the year, then massive layoffs when the stock dropped after 2nd quarter results were announced (2014)

    Advice to Management

    While the stock price is important, without the people who build units, the people whose ideas make Genie a brand to be desired, you have nothing. Try focusing on morale and watch the stock price climb as a result.

    Pros

    Excellent low cost benefits, great work life balance, most of the team members are are really good people!

    Cons

    The management lacks in common sense and logic most of the time. Probably driven from the top for the typical big company bureaucracy and legal reasons......

    Advice to Management

    Reverse the above comment if possible. STOP leading and managing all the time via the TEREX managers text book. Lead from your mind, heart and experience..... You don't always have to be sheep.

    Many opportunities for growth and development, but bureaucracy and poor support will hold you back.

    Pros

    Most co-workers are hard working and ready to help you solve issues. Great opportunity to gain experience in lean manufacturing. Benefits are very good, including 401k, stock options, profit sharing, two week personal time, and Passport discount card. The quality of training can vary greatly depending on what department you go into.

    Cons

    Management is knowledgeable, but disconnected from work force and unresponsive. Support structure is poor and bureaucracy can be a great hinderance. There is a revolving door of managers, so you will constantly be dealing with a new boss with different standards.

    Advice to Management

    Someone needs to stick around long enough to understand their work force.

    Pros

    Ability to work in a small town and small plant which is wonderful.

    Cons

    HR in the plant I work at treats the employees like they are a nuisance to her. Multiple errors in the new employee set up process, some were intentional.

    Pros

    Company perks, learning development programs, knowledgable managers, team members

    Cons

    Company needs a better stream line communication in process. Too many people doing the same job - tend to overlap quite a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on your team members from the bottom up, not the other way around.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are the reason to work here. The work is generally simple and not challenging, but at this time in my life i'm not looking for challenging work. Iw ant good pay and benefits and time with my family. Terex is a good place to work if that's what's important to you. here is room for Growth too, if you work hard and are interested in that kind of thing.

    Cons

    See above. There isn't a challenge in the work that I do, which can sometimes cause me to be a little disengaged. Also, this is one of the smaller companies in this industry, and it's not always great to be the underdog.

    Advice to Management

    Try to find more ways to compete with the big boys out there. It will make for a stronger future.

    Pros

    Pay and Benefits are comparable with other companies; health plan is really good. Safety environment seems to be consistent with industry standards.

    Cons

    No ife-work balance. Company has values and provides lip service to them but doesn't followthrough on them. Management is management but no leadership exist. Told "contract employees" their jobs were secure then 2 weeks later lay off over 100; number has grown since then. Employees are encouraged to make quality, safety improvements - however unless management can make it "thier" idea suggestions are ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Be leaders and show loyalty that you ask for to the employees. Organization will only be mediocore as long as the Good Ole Boy Network exist within the company.

    Pros

    Great pay - could just show up and do average and be extraordinary

    Cons

    If you did too much you were frowned on

    Advice to Management

    By giving so much power to your workforce when they aren't even unionized you actually make it harder for your management team to do their positions
