    Pros

    JLG is truly an equal opportunity employer and continues to strive to world class in all functions of the business by putting people first.

    Cons

    Company titles do not match responsibilities and it is difficult to reach the appropriate person because you cannot simply search the director. This titling system is also linked to compensation so it is very evident when someone doing the same work with you is making less money or money based on their title.

    Pros

    JLG is a world class manufacturer of access equipment with locations around the world. The IT group leverages cutting edge technologies such as virtualization and cloud to bring enterprise quality application delivery. Remote workplace is embraced and there are opportunities to work with people from all over the world.

    Cons

    At times there is a lack of communication among internal teams. Strategy is not driven from the top down or some teams are not being held to supporting the overall strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Support an overall strategy and communicate it effectively to all levels of the organization. Strategy needs to include both operational strategy as well as staff services such as finance, HR and IT.

    Pros

    JLG has a flexible style of management that encourages innovation and thinking outside the box. Rules and procedures are adequately enforced without overly complicating daily activities. Despite its size, JLG feels like a small company that is willing to invest in the ideas of its employees.

    Cons

    While JLG officially sponsors a mentorship program, it is often difficult to seek out advice and feedback from more experienced engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the mentorship program, and consider making it a requirement for new-hires such that senior personnel are allowed to allocate time to mentorship sessions.

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits, cool products.

    Cons

    Over the last couple of years the approach of JLG has changed from being innovative and desiring to dominate the competition to one of meeting the numbers that Wall Street is expecting. There is too much waiting to see if the competition is successful in markets and not enough of establishing markets themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Regain your courage and willingness to fail by entering new markets and establishing markets that don' t exist today like the North American Agriculture market. There seems to be too much fear of failure within the company and not enough courage being displayed.
