    I have been working at Bobcat full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very vertically integrated which offers a lot of opportunities to expand or change your role. Bobcat is also very aggressive in making strides in many of their business areas to advance to the next level. This reinvestment in the company is important as it provides again for more opportunities.

    Cons

    Some disconnect between departments. I think the culture is headed in the right direction for a change to this dynamic.

    I worked at Bobcat as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great experience with some cool products.

    Cons

    Most senior level engineers don't have engineering degrees. The pay is awful for being in such a boring area of the country.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more to attract some top level talent.

    I have been working at Bobcat as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    They treat their interns very similar to full time employees. They help you will challenging projects that prepare you for the real world. Management is very transparent and I enjoyed my experience.

    Cons

    Production facilities are located in small towns and that's not for everyone. Factory workers are not all friendly to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would have been nice to see some of the other facilities and departments within the company to expand employees knowledge of that all goes on at Bobcat.

    I have been working at Bobcat part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I am learning something new everyday, gaining vital experience in how large-scale companies operate and manage their customers and employees. Co-workers are exceptional to work with and my supervisor is very flexible towards my school/personal life.

    Cons

    Being a large company, Bobcat has a lot of employees which can make it quite difficult to get to know everyone. Also having a Korean parent company such as Doosan invites a language barrier that is often difficult to work around.

    Pros

    Training schools for mechanics. Safe shop environment.

    Cons

    Being a mechanic is not fun.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure more of your stores can compete with Caterpillar by allowing for short term rentals. The Bobcat dealer I worked for in Biloxi Mississippi did not do short term rentals and was put out of business by the CAT dealer next door.
