Good management
entry (Former Employee) –  Elko, NVJuly 13, 2018
Horrible staff inside the shop. You are treated as less than human and they will go out of their way just to make your daily work task harder. The managerial staff is the only reason I have stayed.

Great work facility
Department Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Bluefield, VAJune 28, 2018
The employee's are what make it such a great place to spend the time that you have to spend away from your family. Management is horrible. They seem to place the wrong people in wrong positions.
Pros
Plenty of perks. Paid Lunch.

A typical day was at least 8 hours. I learned a lot about shipping and receiving. It was stressful most days but enjoyable. The managers were very helpful.

IT department is a joke
Desktop Support Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIJune 1, 2018
Department and company has potential, all problems are stemmed from poor management.

No one has trust with their own department and nothing is shared.

Hired then fired for doing exactly what was in my job description at a time when major projects were cancelled and work slowed down.

They don't want to fix issues, just keep them ongoing and convoluted.

The company was a union environment sometimes not as easy to manage
Maintenance Supervisor/Planner Scheduler (Former Employee) –  Milwaukee, WIMay 24, 2018
The company was a good place to work, the environment was sometimes rather difficult to manage, due to the relationship between the company and the union, rather long tenure employees and rather set in their ways, not always open to change, but overall a good place to work.

Overworked, compensated somewhat, never appreciated
Rebuild Technician (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTMay 17, 2018
This is a company that will take as much as they can from you and give back as little as they can. No regard for family, work life balance and their employees well being.

A Place To Coast
ICT Department (Current Employee) –  Rolling Meadows, ILMay 10, 2018
Komatsu provides an average work environment, but no opportunities for growth. There is no cross training and if you ask for more advanced tasks, you are told stick to what your current position entails, or that there are other people doing that. If you're looking for a place to go where you are stable in the position you're in and don't want to go any higher, then Komatsu is a good fit.
Pros
Free gym membership, employee discount programs, some of the people
Cons
Lazy and inefficient management in all departments, no growth opportunities, cross departmental cooperation

Stamping Press service engineer
Field Service Stamping Press Division (Former Employee) –  Rolling Meadows, ILApril 25, 2018
Understaffed to accommodate customer base with little effort seen to correct this problem. Support from parent company mediocre and most replies provided small amounts of information to reach the engineering goals for any customer.

Komatsu is full of tight-knit management that tends to stay around for a while. Good indication that the company has something to offer. Diverse group of people that offer opportunity to all.
