I have been working at Caterpillar full-time for more than a year

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    it's close to home,relaxed atmosphere,but that's changing since Cat took over for another company

    Cons

    ceo makes 20million a yr and all they do is take from employees. portray their selves as a family,our core value, team all lies. Push older emloyees out. Disagree ask a question THEY'LL GET RID OF YOU. Big on political correctness,but it's a scam for show.Even skilled craftsmen are told their just workers not worth a good wage.
