Pros

- 401k company match
- Tuition reimbursement program

Cons

- Not a modern workplace culture/environment (not healthy for innovation, for example - the CEO wants men to be cleanly shaven, if you work at corporate then suit and tie are mandatory, also doesn't want people to drive Mercedes, doesn't like people walking across the street for Starbucks)
- Hard to get promotions
- Inflexible hours (8am to 5pm was set in stone)
- Company was run top-down

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees, all of them talk about the flaws of the company behind its' back and most of them have great suggestions on how to improve the culture, but nobody speaks up about it because of fear managment.

    Pros

    If you want to learn discipline, this is a great company. If you can do well at Paccar, you can be very successful with other companies.

    Cons

    The culture is very much command and control. Ultra conservative

    Advice to Management

    Trust your people and let them communicate more openly

    Pros

    My coworkers were great and have met many close friends

    Cons

    Clueless managers do as they are told and don't think
    Promotions aren't given out on merit only on years with the company
    Outdated culture
    Compensation is weak compared to like companies
    Health care is expensive
    In the IT division most managers were never developers or have Computer background yet they are making the decisions
    All the work is going to India
    Hiring more H1B1 employees because PACCAR doesn't want to pay competitive wages and these employees are basically hostages
    All the talented developers are leaving for better opportunities then PACCAR downplays the individuals contributions
    Individual goals are set to match with the directors goals so the directors receive their incentive compensation goals.
    When anyone slightly important visits the Information Technology Division the employees must dress up (like this is fooling anyone).
    I have more but my fingers are getting tired.

    Advice to Management

    No advice because nothing will change. My advice to employees is get experience and leave.
