    I worked at Joy Global full-time

    Pros

    Good hard working people. Great benefits.

    Cons

    Management has some issues with trusting the engineering department. It is the mining industry. They let some very talented people go over the lean times and now they struggle with the where the next big ideal will come from. Not good!

    Advice to Management

    Trust your engineering team.

    Pros

    The people of Joy Global are very welcoming and helpful to a new employee. They have made me feel like I really belong here and am immediately part of the team. I couldn't have asked for a better transition!

    Cons

    Some of the onboarding systems are delayed/quirky, but everyone was willing to help get issues resolved pretty quickly. I guess I would have expected better technologies in this area for such a large company.

    Advice to Management

    Every manager is quite approachable - keep up the great attitude and down-to-earth demeanor.

    I worked at Joy Global full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The employees are personable and great to work with, just like family.

    Cons

    The way the company is run is acting like they care about their employees, but will lay them off/shut down plants/and worry about their bottom line. Safety, safety, safety. "We care about our employee's well being", but really we don't want to have to pay for injuries. Makes sense from a business stand-point. The employees don't feel the same when they talk numbers right after a safety speech. When business is slow here come the layoffs. No option to take a pay cut or an option to furlough. The next month business is booming again. On top of that, they hire upper management from outside when there are very qualified employees already in lower management positions that have been there 20+ years and know the product line inside and out. So the new person from a completely different field comes in and runs things their way. Then that person gets promoted to a V.P. position, and the cycle starts over again.

    Advice to Management

    Quit.
