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

    Pros

    Bonuses though I never saw one due to the recession, cool products, exposure to big industry. Caterpillar is a world presence and I am certain will continue to be. As long as there are things to build, Caterpillar will be there to provide the equipment.

    Cons

    At times it felt like I was a number. I spent most of the few years I was there as an engineer doing the same work that our off-and-on high school co-op was doing. I certainly did not feel like I was being challenged.
