    I loved my work, working hours and salary was acceptable but was in for a rude cruel awakening.

    Former Employee - Supervisor in Witbank, Mpumalanga (South Africa)

    I worked at Komatsu full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company values, if practiced correctly would be great. Benefits were good.

    Cons

    Company does not uplift employees through training. Promises are made but never happens. Certain staff is favored to get training. Others are promised to train when employed but then never train them but expect them to do the work properly .

    Very top leadership is disloyal, untrustworthy,and a bully. There is a group that, if they dont like a certain person and feel threatened by that person, they will, with the help of their friends in HR, bully, victimize, terrorize and then frame that person and have them charged and dismissed unfairly.
    Only "highly visible" management is rewarded; however, no strategic transparency and stifling feedback means you'll never know if your activities are visible enough. Ground level is overlooked for their inputs. Senior people advise leaving to get proper compensation. When staff was striking for 3 months and the minimum staff came to work, did 5 peoples work, they were not compensated, but management, on the other side got R40 000 each bonus for keeping the ship afloat. What about the loyalty of ground level that did the physical work while managers sat in their offices?
    There is salary discrimination against women. Extra work is not rewarded.
    Despite record profits, there is continual cutbacks (like the cancellation of the end-of-year functions). Only certain staff getting christmas vouchers, and only certain staff having christmas dinners.

    Advice to Senior Management –
    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a new approach to employee promotions that DOES NOT involve having to resign and leave the company! Listen to your employees when they have problems. Do not get rid of employees when the truth is spoken and corrupt employees are identified. OPEN your eyes to some of your senior employees that is running the show and misusing the company for personal gain. OPEN your eyes to management that give away thousands of Rands in parts to companies without ever invoicing them. Don't just listen to your managers. Sometimes bring in the guy on the ground level to see how those managers are costing you millions due to their incompency.
