    I worked at Bobcat as an intern

    Pros

    Well established Co-op program. Projects can differ, but are beneficial to company and you also get to learn from them. Great culture, Fun intern activities, interesting products.

    Cons

    Would have liked more feedback on projects. Housing can be a little hard to find, but they will work with you to find something.

    I have been working at Bobcat full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    $15.00 an hour starting pay over time for those that like it, some nice people to work with,

    Cons

    Very stressful job. No paid time off until you get hired on with bobcat, half an hour lunch breaks, not always guaranteed 40 hours depending on what area you work in, some areas get shut down if they run out of parts. Equipment that breaks, not enough equipment for everyone to use especially when working overtime. work 10 hour shifts pulse Saturday's, only one day off a week, forced to work with people who are bad for the company, management treats the job like it is more important than the employees, management will tell employees that they suck. If the management gets in trouble with their boss they punish employees with 10 hour shifts, over time is mandatory and is forced on employees a lot, if you have a problem with an employee management acts like it is a personal problem between you and that employee and they won't do anything about it. Discriminating, unfair, get teased by other employees, no communication

    Advice to Management

    Work on your people skills and take more concern with the employees complaints don't punish the people who are trying to do their jobs, punish the ones who won't let those employees do their jobs, take more pride in your employees

    I have been working at Bobcat full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Insurance is great, people are great, supervisor is fantastic

    Cons

    People in certain jobs are not getting paid what they are worth and then there are others who get paid for doing almost nothing. Guess I should go crying to upper management that I can't do my job anymore but can't afford to take a pay cut to do less work than my co-workers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop getting rid of people who are good workers and stop pacifying those who don't do their job. Pay people what they have earned and you may keep people longer therefore improving quality of product.

    I have been working at Bobcat as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great office space. Fairly flexible in relation to work hours. Good intern salary. Perfect for someone trying to combine IT and engineering interests.

    Cons

    Slightly more like IT support than program management. Also, there is a reasonable bit of down-time (although this could be viewed as a pro I suppose...)

    Advice to Management

    Have clear development process for co-ops. Make sure there is enough work to keep the co-op fully occupied, otherwise they can be a slightly wasted resource.

    I have been working at Bobcat part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am learning something new everyday, gaining vital experience in how large-scale companies operate and manage their customers and employees. Co-workers are exceptional to work with and my supervisor is very flexible towards my school/personal life.

    Cons

    Being a large company, Bobcat has a lot of employees which can make it quite difficult to get to know everyone. Also having a Korean parent company such as Doosan invites a language barrier that is often difficult to work around.

    Pay is decent, hours are great, I enjoy what I do.

    Cons

    Management seems to be in disarray at times. Don't respect the job we do at times.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication with hourly employees, please.
