    I have been working at Poclain Hydraulics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Relatively flat organization, open communication, realistic goals and objectives, decent pay and benefits, seem to really care about employees

    Cons

    Can't quite figure out the culture, a few load mouths, typical complaints from people that haven't really works other places

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the open communication and possibly have a few more all employee things when possible. It would help the groups bond.

    Pros

    Good benefits, mostly nice people, constantly trying to improve as an employer, relatively diverse and multicultural teams, opportunities to travel abroad

    Cons

    Sometimes the number of meetings can become too much. It would probably be good to spend more time working directly with their teams and less time talking about it.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your team first and the results will speak for themselves. Nice job improving employee involvement

    Pros

    Outstanding benefits, concern and focus on the employee, training and development, global/international exposure, new management team with strong leadership experience.

    Keep investing in the US. Recognize that expectations of American businesses and employees are different than European and allow for and support empowerment of local team.

    Pros

    Vacation time. Paid time off, Benfits are good, 2 week christmas shutdown but only 5 days are paid. co workers are good people well most of them.

    Cons

    No advancement within no matter what they tell you during interviews. Hard to move up. Certification program they have is a joke. If your not a kiss butt or tattle tale or suck up good luck on being recognizedd for your hard work or being able to learn alot. Shop is based on favoritism, upper management is a joke and doesnt care how employees feel on certain issues. you work every other saturday for straight time and not over time. a huge majority of shop floor employees are looking to get out. Upper management lies constantly to you and then lies to you again to try and cover themselves. Only way to move up or advance is if you have expierence and a 4 year degree in what you want to move into. Work you like a dog and you get no reward or recognition. Alot of saftey issues that only get taken care of if someone is extremely hurt people are always out having to have shoulder surgeries back problems or broken bones. Workers morale is very low and shop floor people dont care about this place. Do back door operations on their products that customers dont know about.

    Advice to Management

    Dont lie to employees, practice what is being told for us to do. Get rid of the crappy work schedule, stop playing favorites to the kiss butts, suck ups. Re structure this whole place starting with upper managment. No body is happy and about 75% of your workforce wants to leave and is looking for new employement.
