Pros

Great place to work alongside with some of the brightest minds in the industry. Good support from supervisors and teammates

Cons

Location is not the greatest if you are used to a fast paced life style. 2.5 Hours from the nearest big city. Extreme Highs and lows (company's economical situation). But that is just the way in the industry.

Advice to Management

It would be great if Management focused on providing better recognition and compensation. Try to incorporate better team building methods.

    Pros

    The business is world renown.
    Many internal Decatur employees lack degrees which gives opportunity for advancement.
    Management will consider hourly employees for management positions.

    Cons

    Leaders do not listen to their employees.
    Leaders will not let their employees leave current positions early for promotions or opportunities in other Caterpillar plants.
    When times are busy, there is no consideration to vacation days, hours per day, or medical issues.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and consider that often letting people get promoted when offered a position will only help the overall company.

  2. OK but just remember you will be 1 out of 125,000.
