Work life balance
I am very happy at CAT. It is a place that truly fosters your career. They care about their employees as much as their bottom line.Cons
A lot of the work is done by a small amount of employees. The lazier people don't get fired, they get moved. However manager does recognize the difference and rewards those who deserve it.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

- Application Details
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at CAT Financial in June 2014.Interview Details
Interview was scheduled from 7:45 to 2:30. First I was asked to present my resume to a panel of managers. Then I had 3 one-hour interviews with the Hiring Manager, the Controller, and another financial manager. Lunch was in between those interviews. Finally. A 30 minute mtg with HR to review benefits and sign a consent for background check.
The interviews were all behavioral-type questions, so it was difficult to fully explain my skills and what I have to offer. They were more concerned with "how did you handle a problem where you didn't have the time to do a good job" versus "can you manage a team of 6?" or "can you consolidate multiple international financial statements?" etc.
Each of the 3 interviewers asked basically the same questions.
In my opinion, behavioral interviews will not identify who is the best candidate for all jobs. (Accounting candidates are often introverted and uncomfortable with these types of questions!)
Everyone was super nice and friendly. This is a great company, so I was disappointed to not get an offer. I was not expecting much up front, but after you see the building and offices and all the amenities & great people, you see what a great place this would be to work.No OfferPositive ExperienceDifficult Interview
