I worked at Caterpillar full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

I had the best of times there. Depending your level of motivation, you can go places.

Cons

Too much nepotism, loyalty reward vs perf reward drive younger folks away. It's still way too Peoria boys driven for a fortune 50 company. Does feel very much 21st century.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is a world outside of Peoria and yea more than 50% of sales come from outside the US. Might be about time somebody recognizes it and globalize the company a bit more rather than that mon and pop shop from Peoria style.

    Pros

    Great pay & great people!!

    Cons

    Difficult to get approval for jobs to improve the facility if not related to production.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change policies on facility type projects. They shouldn't be viewed the same as production projects.
