    I worked at Bobcat Company for less than a year

    Pros

    Working as a Co-Op for Bobcat was an outstanding experience. They make you feel as you are a vital part of the team. You will be put on real tasks and never once did I feel like the classic intern who just got coffee for his boss. I would highly recommend that anyone who has the opportunity takes advantage of it.

    Cons

    Sometimes there can be a disconnect between the engineers and the factory (Gwinner ND) workers, however often times they both become your best resources.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going in the direction with your Co-op program. I would love the opportunity to obtain an internship position next summer as well as eventually work full time.

    I worked at Bobcat Company

    Pros

    Great Networking, fun work environment, good pay. I learned a lot about what being an engineer actually means in a manufacturing environment and got to network with many different departments.

    Cons

    The only downside was the locaiton, working for the company was excellent. If you can live in Gwinner, ND or don't mind commuting, then this is the perfect job for you!

    I have been working at Bobcat Company full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great company to work for. Genuinely seems to care about the employees Pay started off a little low but definitely seems to be fair now. Work atmosphere is fantastic.

    Cons

    It's located in Gwinner, ND. A few members of upper management seem to have their own agenda and have some crazy ideas. We spent years trying to engineer the human element out of the process and now they want to add it back in.

    Advice to Management

    Stop sending us the direction we are headed. A lot of the policy changes are things that were tried years ago, but our new leader seems to forget that and wants to send us back to the stone age. The running joke is we are being told to be "world class" but are only being given a hammer and chisel to do it. Things seem to be headed in a downward direction because certain people wont concede on their ideas and... won't make exceptions where they are needed. Running out of a part that is used daily because you want to have JIT delivery is a joke, especially when the parts are small and take up very little storage space. But we are being held to 1 day OHQ no matter what. certain exceptions should apply. Having a VP that comes in and tries to change everything and send us back to trying things we tried 5 years ago is such a bad idea. When everyone from the director level down listens to him just to humor him because they don't respect him, there's a serious issue
