I have been working at Joy Global full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Working with the biggest mining equipment in the world
great work life balance
benefits
because of continual promotions, there are always opportunities

Cons

not much documentation for existing products
too many executives that don't make decisions
don't develop new products, just keep fixing old ones.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

stop promoting people into the executive levels while laying off lower level employees. It sets a bad example, especially when not much strategic planning is happening anyway.

    I have been working at Joy Global full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Wide range of responsibilities that will let a young engineer gain valuable experience. Training is available for those who seek it out.

    Cons

    Large turnover in upper-level engineering management resulting in multiple organizational changes. Pay is below average. Promotions are few and far between.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less bureaucracy, and let people do their jobs. Make more incentives for younger employees to stay with the company in a struggling macro-economic time.

    I have been working at Joy Global full-time

    Pros

    Size of the machine that are build. The opportunity for the employees.

    Cons

    Its hard to advance in the company, cause they think abut numbers. Sometimes they don't give some workers to advance, that are willing to learn the whole job. Some get bye with little that breaks down the morality of the good workers. Training is needed but it seems its on the back burner. Th3 company steady farming jobs out, than do in house training. Sorry to say, the future is not looking good if it keep on going the way its going.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training is so needed. If no training, no job. For both the employees or management. If everyone is treated fairly, and trained. The company would be a better place to work. Sprawling and Harnisfegger is turning in there graves. Management is worrying about how to make themselves look good, not for the outlook of the company's future.
