    I worked at Caterpillar full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great culture where employees are treated well in order to retain talent. Truly values work life balance. Attracts and retains fantastic employees and walks the talk in terms of ethics.

    Cons

    I have never seen the company fire anyone. While the people are great there is potentially a lack of urgency or accountability within the company . Long retention also means there is not a lot of new blood brought into the company which means everyone has learned and does things the "Caterpillar" way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tighter accountability on sales teams to meet the targets. Hold dealer development managers accountable for significant step changes in dealer capabilities, they are the senior leaders in the field and should be demonstrating true value to the individual businesses.

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Caterpillar full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunities to travel
    Global / regional

    Cons

    Too large = too slow and too much bureaucracy
    Alot of time and money wasting and jobs for jobs sake

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management required with team leaders who know what to do and do it rather than just liking to look busy. Marketing interms - recruit and use effectively as alot are just full of themselves and their own importance and dont actually do anything.... some cant even use simple tools like excel

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO
