    I worked at Komatsu full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good pay & Benefits package.

    Cons

    Management yells at employees, extreme demoralization, bullying by top Longview Sr. Management. HR will not do anything about it. I’ve seen them let go 2 employees with disabilities recently. Each of them had no chance with the extreme harassment and obvious disability discrimination from Sr. Management.

    Advice to Management

    I would advise Komatsu Corporate in Japan to immediately get rid of the full top management team in Longview as fast as possible or a lawsuit may soon be in your future.

    Good pay, good structure. Management main concern is making numbers for bonus not quality of product

    Poor practices by upper management. All senior managers are concerned with pushing product out the door.

    I have been working at Komatsu full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good Company Upper Average pay and benefits 401k with match. Decent insurance with a few options. HR is informative through emails and online teaching.

    Cons

    Some of the management can be chaotic and demoralizing micro managers. They are so worried about what they should not be and not worried about the huge issues in their face. High volume of contract/Temp workers with the same expectations as full time. Sad thing is the company keeps them on with the promise of becoming full time for years. It’s also tough for the full time employees that are expect to carry the... torch of Komatsu Way with so many demoralized temp management and office workers that have lost faith. Get rid of old infrastructure and get newer technology.

    Advice to Management

    Hire temps full time if you have to keep them on for more than a year. HR should be after management to hire these employees if they are kept for more than a year.
