Finance Analyst (Former Employee) says"The only way to survive the Komatsu culture is to become the boss's favorite or friend. There is a lot of favoritism from lower management to upper management. It does not matter how good you are at your job or how many hours you donate (everyone is on salary) you will not be able to advance if you are not a "favorite" of the boss. You are never allowed to disagree with management. After over ten years of being a Komatsu employee I was forced to make a choice of being fired or retire. I chose an early retirement. After I chose retirement they had to hire two employees to replace me.good benefitsDifferent work standards for employees, There are "Komatsu Elite and Komatsu Non-Elite" employees, Almost everyone is on salary. The "Non-Elite" are requred to donate their time without compensation."
Service Administrator & Assistant (Current Employee) says"My opinion of Komatsu is that they treat hard working people like garbage. Management and HR do not back up their employees, they no longer give non management employees a yearly bonus, yet expect employees to give 110% with no incentives. Their benefits aren't very well, especially their insurance deductions.nonecannot name all in just one section, would not advise applying to this company"
