Sales Support Manager (Current Employee) –  Wichita, KSAugust 16, 2017
Upper management is a very tight group of people who have been with the organization for a long time and They do not allow middle management the freedom to make decisions on their own.

Was a great company until the last couple years
Annonymous (Current Employee) –  AnnonymousJuly 5, 2016
Company recently took on a huge expansion. The company went from a family oriented organization to a cut-throat, watch your back kind of an organization. It you are not in Kansas City or Wichita you are a red headed stepchild. Absolutely zero support from management. Way too much lip service. The company preaches its MVP. Mission vision and principals but then acts completely the opposite. Internal hiring is very much based on the good old boy system.
Pros
Caterpillar is a great brand. Pay for technicians is pretty good.
Cons
Expected to work and then work some more. Even 10 hour days are not good enough in many locations.

Technician 2 (Former Employee) –  Wichita, KSDecember 31, 2015
Foley equipment really tries to take care of their employees. What they expect of the technicians could be better. I think that the techs could have more support.

1970's time capsule
Manager (Former Employee) –  Park CitySeptember 26, 2014
While many good and talented people work at Foley, their true capabilities will likely never be known due to the suffocating and risk averse culture. A family run business, it has grown dramatically in the last few years due to acquisitions.With now over 900 employees, what was likely a strength before (mom and pop style culture) is now a constraint. Forward thinking or leader type employees are more likely to be called on the carpet by the senior executive for driving change than to be commended. This has created a culture of little to no true empowerment and true process improvements are limited to a very few senior folks, ultimately requiring approval always of the senior executive.
Pros
Many good people are employed there.
Cons
Head in the sand culture.

Not a happy place to work
Equipment Tech (Former Employee) –  Manhattan, KSDecember 22, 2013
Service manger and shop manager very disconnected from employees in shop. Both mangers incompetent to lead anyone in shop, you were on your own or had to get help from other employees, who were very knowledgeable and helpful. The hardest part for me was repairing something or replacing something that didn't need to be because my boss told me to when I knew there was a better, cheaper or more efficient way to do it. If you did suggest a different way or suggest that there could be another way to do something , you were labeled as argumentative
Pros
tool allowance
Cons
Tech rating system a joke

Master CAT Diesel Techician (Former Employee) –  Wichita, KSOctober 25, 2012
Truck shop manager was very disconnceted not only to employees needs but customers needs. When you suggested changes it was taken as an attack on his position and followed by retaliation or grudge. Management also did not follow thier own ethics rules unless it work for thier benefit. The fellow workers on the other hand were exceptional and very helpful.
Pros
good benefits
Cons
poor management
