I worked at Caterpillar full-time (more than a year)Pros
Good support from peers, and excellent supervisors. Though busy, the main supervisor was willing to help and guide my learning. I would work for him any day. Thorough and respectful (of each department's needs) planning meetings for new large projects. I have never seen any project management equal to it. Below average starting salary and above average benefits, bonus, and potential raises. Severance package was generous compared to industry and years worked. I would go back to CAT.Cons
In learning new job,it was very busy to learn to satisfactory level in one year.
Tools and documentation for jobs could be updated to make staff more productive. CAT is probably working on it.
When the product orders drop, management is quick to adjust the staff, and they paint a bleak immediate future.
Would like to see more permanent employees and less contract staff, but it is probably how CAT can succeed in today's world.RecommendsNeutral Outlook
