I worked at Caterpillar full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great people to work with--I still have some of my best friends to this day even 4 years after leaving CAT. Good salary and nice benefits.

Cons

CAT is a classic slow-moving, tons of red tape, large corporation that you read about in business books. While they do a lot to protect its products, brand, and reputation, sometimes the only thing holding CAT back is CAT itself.

    I have been working at Caterpillar full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Benefits, even though they are expensive, still nice to have.

    Cons

    They are strictly a numbers company. They will preach Values, morality, safety, people, and quality, but in the end they only care about profit. Never been so disappointed in what a company has become as this one. After working there 8 years i was removed from my job, for pointing out how much people were being asked to due, while on a slowdown. Would never advise anyone serious about a careet to join this company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to follow those values you preach so much about. Treat your workers as real people.
