Good benefits as a whole. %5 401k matching, vested in Pension after 5yrs, just ok health benefits.

Layoffs. When the market gets hit hard, hold on.

Advice to Management

Your personnel choices (promotional, layoffs) leave every somewhat baffled.

    Pros

    Peterbilt is a good company to work for overall. It offers great benefits. The majority of employees are great people. It is absolutely a mans world that allows women administrative work. Product is good with many employees who are very proud to help build it.

    Cons

    PACCAR executives need to clean house to allow for new technology & growth within the company. NEED to get rid of the old management, it is the good ol'boy and old women who've "secured" their role in the company. There are a lot of old employees making high dollars, doing below average work. Peterbilt lays off routinely, and by seniority instead of performance. HR is not professional. There is no mentoring and opportunities for improvements are often oppressed. If its not broke, don't fix it. Little to no communication.

    Advice to Management

    PLEASE consider evaluating your staff. Its time to embrace the new technology and experience the younger employees have to offer. Get rid of stagnant old high salaried employees. Kill the micro-management and old-school ways. Offer incentives and allow creativity into the workplace.

    Pros

    Good learning experience for new engineers. Gained some valuable 3D modeling experience.

    Cons

    Repetitive work. Layoffs. Poor communication between groups. Simple tasks take much longer than they should. Not a place to stay at for very long.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to embrace the future. If you want your market share to go up, be more proactive and less reactive.
