    Pros

    Caterpillar makes awesome products and pays very well. There is a lot of opportunity to advance your career in various departments and various locations.

    Cons

    The manufacturing culture is very negative - box-checking, good ol' boy club, passing blame rather than identifying and fixing problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend less time in meetings with an upward focus and spend more time with your people and acting on feedback to improve the work culture.
