I have been working at Joy Global full-time (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.

    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.

    Pros

    Decent starting pay and benefits and a steady job. Even when work slows down, they try to keep you employed

    Cons

    Lots of cons. While the starting pay may be decent, don't expect much as far as raises go, and that's if you even get one. There is no cost of living or inflation adjustment. The pay scale you start with will remain as long as you're there. And don't expect advancement unless you're in the old boys club. For as large of a company as it is, it's ran like a mom and pop shop. They claim to be a metrics driven company, but they micromanage from the top down

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to listen to your employees that argue with you. They tend to know what will and won't work. Even Machiavelli advises against yes men
