Good people. Hard work.

Grinding Specialist (Current Employee) East Peoria, IL

ProsEveryone I have met through my work experience at Caterpillar has been very gracious, understanding, and hard working. From the shop floor to the CEO's office, you will find very friendly people who are there to do business, and do it well.

Right now the business is booming, and is only in the first stages of a sharp growth period. The work is there, so for industrious men and women, a future can be made that will make the past two years of economic sluggishness recede as any bad memory should.

ConsThe heavy equipment industry is hard work. Hot, dangerous work.

Unfortunately, sometimes money supersedes values.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo be the best leader, you have to be the best follower.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Pros: Extremely strong brand in a rising market sector. Most employees really… Cons: Caterpillar is bypassing qualified internal candidates for positions in the name of increasing diversity in favor of individuals with lesser qualifications. IT/IS management has good work/life… Advice to Senior Management: Live the values that you preach, if Caterpillar really does hire only the top performers why do you promote from outside? Other people besides mid/upper management… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
