Terex has always allowed me to pursue what I was interested in, If I felt that I could make an impact and was persuasive they encouraged me to make the best of it. I really appreciate that in Terex, they believed in me just as much as I believed in me.

Terex is great because there is a lot of opportunity for growth. Terex can be tough because it is a company made up of mostly men. Being a woman at Terex you must have alot of courage and be consistant as women seem to often be ignored.

    Working in materials there is very little flexibility. 4 10-hour work days is what you sign on for but are met with working longer than 10 hours everyday and you will end up working 5 days instead of 4. Sometimes even 6 days a week. This makes balancing family life and going to appointments nearly impossible. Time off is not easily awarded. Team members are made to feel guilty or publicly shamed when asking for time off or not working enough overtime during the week.

    There is now a much better policy for women and men who take maternity/paternity leave.

    Maybe. I would recommend some departments but not all.

Terex has a very practical, down to earth culture. Improvement is one of the company's values and I would say this is embedded in the culture. If you have a good idea and can support how it will benefit the business, it will be championed. I like working for a global business -- but it has a small company feel at the same time. Leadership is very accessible at all levels in my experience.

    Maybe it depends what you expect when you ask for flexibility and/or maybe it depends on which department you work but as long as my manager is as flexible for me and I am for him, I am happy

I would tell another woman to push the limits of her engagement. Everyone has an opinion and I feel that more opinions from women would benefit the company as a whole. Far two many of us/women do not push our engagement when the opportunity to do so arises.

    The office environment offers some flexibility. However, the folks on the Production floor have little or no flexibility as it relates to time on the job.

This is a great place for women to work. Frankly, you have much more latitude than your male counterparts to advance and to speak up and be heard.

    Flexibility is site, segment, role and position dependent. While this is to be expected for workers on the line, it should be consistent for office workers regardless of what site or segment or department you work in.

    I find this question somewhat offensive. It seems to assume that as I female I have taken maternity leave somewhere.

Terex is still at a relatively early stage of managing diversity issues. There are so many differences between all of the international cultures that I understand it can look great in one country, not so good in another. They do make an effort though. The things which are great include equal opportunity for any gender (or race, etc.) for job promotion. The things which are not so great include less than a fair share of women in very senior roles. There are some gaps in HR areas such as no training on matters such as harassment but the support you get is great (if there were any issues). They have a good employee assistance program and are committed to acting ethically which is wonderful. A recently introduced mentor program and a continuous focus on team member development is also excellent. Overall, I would say they are on their way to being great.

    Of course this depends on the role. I agree with the level of flexibility currently offered to both men and women

Terex is definitely making strides to improve work life balance. They have recently implemented paid maternity leave and up to 2 weeks of pay to take care of a family member when on FMLA. They also just started a pilot program for flexible work schedules and work from home options.
