    Pros

    Big talk, no action.

    Cons

    The importance of finding the right butts to kiss far exceeds any importance given to the work you do.

    Fire all the children and start over.

    Pros

    Great company to work for, excellent safety standards, comfortable work environment

    Cons

    Leadership is lacking, watched 14 supervisors come and go in the total of 3 to 4 years on the off shift, they had a golden opprotunity to get all their eggs out of the coal basket and into Oil and Gas but sold that off faster then a blink of an eye. Now here I am jobless thanks to a plant closure and the company gets sold off and the old CEO's make millions!

    Advice to Management

    Hope Komastu runs it better then the old heads of state!

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, people that care, good benefits, good salary, potential for bonuses. Now part of Komatsu and initially seems and feels like a good company overall.

    Cons

    Travel can be extensive depending on project. Constant restructuring causes confusion and lack of guidance.

    Advice to Management

    Too much restructuring.

    Pros

    Opportunity to move within the organization. Great team initially.

    Cons

    The working relationship between corporate and the union wasn't the best making it really difficult for the company to do anything from paint lines in the parking lot to implement cost saving initiatives. The facilities were in rough shape.

    Advice to Management

    So many changes so fast they were not taken seriously; rather, considered flavor of the month. A more detailed look at what needs to happen and when and how to implement would be valuable.

    I worked at Joy Global full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - My colleagues were some of the greatest people I've known.
    - Work Hard / Play Hard Environment
    - Great Pay / Benefits
    -Winter Shutdown for Holiday Season

    Cons

    - Nepotism ran wild. The influx of CNH employees that came in during my time there was astounding. Some were good, many were absolutely horrible.
    -Throughout my time, leaders were hired that were some of the most foul individuals I have ever met who not only lied on a regular basis, but also made you manipulate for them. The minute you stopped becoming their "pal", they tried to destroy your career.

    Advice to Management

    I continue to hear such horrible things from old friends that are still there, and absolutely NOTHING has changed. Get rid of the the leaders who continue to destroy the culture/morale.
