Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at Caterpillar full-time (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 Management

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.

    I have been working at Caterpillar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay & great people!!

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

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

    There are still a lot of "Old school" management styles and culture issues that needs to be resolved. But there are things in place to change the culture.
