    I worked at Patten Industries full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pros are the opportunity to work for a company representing a great American brand of construction machinery.

    Cons

    Poor leadership and management. VERY high turnover due to lack of formalized processes (no annual compensation reviews, no performance standards or career planning tools). Low morale throughout company between departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Institute annual compensation review and reward employees for years of service with incremental increases.

  3.  

    Good place to learn about Caterpillar and their practices.

    Lack of opportunities to move up the corporate ladder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look within the company before going elsewhere to hire good people.

    I have been working at Patten Industries

    Pros

    Being around and seeing big projects built around the city and suburbs, good pay, great co workers, being on the front line of cutting edge technology

    Cons

    Not much to complain about, Patten has been very fair with me. If I have list a con it would be poor Field Service management and Shop management, which creates negative opinions of Patten.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Patten is a great place to work. That said, talk to your employees and customers. Alot of people have poor opinions about Patten based on poor decisions by middle level managers.
