    I worked at P & H Mining

    Pros

    It was close to home, so very convenient. Met a lot of decent people who are mostly gone now.

    Cons

    Favoritism, politics, lies created by upper management to make lower employees look bad. Hard to get ahead if you are not a suck up. I could have made more money had I left sooner than I did. This used to be a much better place to work, but like most companies, they are not thinking with whats left of their brains. This is another reason why China is going to come and take over!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fairness, treat your employees as you expect to be treated. In other words, show some respect for the drones!

    I have been working at P & H Mining

    Pros

    The product is awesome. It is an engineers dream. However, if you aren't in the inner circle, which if you are a contractor you arent, then you will never have input. If you can get a full time job there, I would take it. If you can only get a contract, go somewhere else. You will get a paid well, but it is the most boring job you can imagine.

    Cons

    PAPERWORK . . . . LOTS OF PAPERWORK. The beuracracy is unimaginable. It takes 2 days to make a change and 3 months to release it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give ownership to your engineers, stop the micromanaging and let people who know what they are doing, get stuff done.

    I have been working at P & H Mining

    Pros

    If you like to work in a slow and very stable environment, then you will fit in perfectly at P&H. If you are good at what you do and not a manager, then you will have a job for life at P&H.

    Cons

    Communication gaps between Union and Management hinders production goals. If you are a Sr. Level manager expect to be let go within three years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees more when it comes to the roadblocks they face. Set goals based on value added measures. Limit staff communications by emails.

    I worked at P & H Mining

    Pros

    Opportunities to see the world. The equipment is fascinating and was very fun to work on.

    Cons

    Your just a number. Favoritism, poor management especially in Minepro Regions. Poor communicaton, lack of respect for employees, most in management roles don't have a clue what succession planning means. Engineers with a very arrogant and ignorant view of field work and lack of understanding of good customer service. Go ahead and leave, there will be another warm body to replace you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get in touch with your subordinates and listen to how they feel and what the issues are. Get rid of top-heavy regional management and streamline the decision making process. Keep poor employees in check and give feedback to all employees both positive and negative.

    I have been working at P & H Mining

    Pros

    The company makes a very quality part. Very good brand name. Advancement potential is there. Company offers much in the way of training and education. Always willing to pay for someone to go to school or take a class. ,

    Cons

    Lack of communication and information sharing. Lack of productivity by union employees. Hard to break employees out of their "old mentality". To create change here, is very difficult, if not impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enforce rules - set expectations for employees and hold them to these expectations.

    Pros

    Great benefit package including medical, dental, vision, matching 401K, and Employee Stock Purchase Program. Opportunity to work with a product that is truly a feat of odern engineering.

    Cons

    Lack of communication and planning from upper management. Poor development of goals. Entrenched union. Long range planning is either non-existent or is kept a secret at the executive level.
