    Pros

    Core values are taken seriously, great benefits, infrastructure for support and collaboration is well developed.

    Cons

    Long hours are often necessary. Travel and relocation are often required for advancement, depending on the type of job. Staying in place is acceptable, but often limits opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get down in the trenches more often. The senior management was rarely seen in the operations area, some we're never seen.

    Pros

    Advancement opportunity, flexible hours. Able to work from home often as long as you don't have important meetings. Good co-workers.

    Cons

    Favoritism when deciding who to give the important projects and promotions to. They seem to always be experiencing massive layoffs. Work/Life Balance was horrible for those that worked on major projects.

    Pros

    A chance to enter a career in the heavy machine industry.

    Cons

    Employees are being walked out and discharged for mistakes they didn't make. Sabotage is happening to select which employees keep or lose their jobs. Parts are being taken out of employees bags before leaving the warehouse. Management states they can not prove that it is or isn't happening, no checks or balances are in place, yet employees are discharged anyways. Supervisors can decide if mistakes will count or not, so some employees get walked out and others do not for the same thing.

    A larger percentage of promotions for easier and better jobs are based on favoritism. Most supervisors do not have a lot of shop experience or a college degree.
    Forced overtime that is scheduled a day or two in advance which doesn't leave much time to plan for outside of work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set up a camera system to discourage sabotage, before discharging employees. Or if mistakes are happening quicker for some employees move them to a non claims area. Have time limits for jobs, as some employees have been at the same job for a long time, which doesn't give other employees a chance to learn those jobs.

    I worked at Caterpillar Logistics Services

    Pros

    Caterpillar was an overall awesome experience. They had great leadership and many different networking opportunities within the company. They also had lots of opportunities to learn different skills and a variety of ways in which they could be applied.

    Cons

    Working for a large company it sometimes take a long time to get a project approved due to the amount of people that must look at it, however they are working to reduce that time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, doing a great job!
