    Great place to start career!

    Accounting Specialist (Former Employee) Aurora, CO

    ProsNice people - Bruce Wagner is a good leader. Lots of opportunity to learn.

    ConsPay could be better; low turnover limits promotions; could use fresh management leadership - new ideas & energy could do a lot to support Wagner.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe open to new ideas; appreciate hard-working managers and get rid of those who are good at managing upward but can't keep their own team satisfied.

    Solid work force, outdated and out of touch management.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSome of the strongest individual employees I've ever worked with but they are very few in number.

    ConsMany of the company's employees are hired because they are personal friends and promoted to positions of influence with little to no experience or knowledge of the field.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    No strategy to develop next-generation leaders

    Manager (Current Employee) Aurora, CO

    ProsNot a bad environment but challenges are internal, people get in each other's way. Too much reliance on Caterpillar brand name.

    ConsToo conservative. Express desire to change but culture doesn't allow it. Most employees are terrified of change, especially top management.

    Distasteful

    CSA Service Coordinator (Former Employee) Aurora, CO

    ProsCaterpillar produces great quality products! Wagner attempted to provide great quality service and in most instances, they delivered! Wagner had a fairly good/generous benefits package although the compensation was lacking compared to similar roles/responsibilities in other industries.

    ConsSenior Management lacked vision, HR unevenly applied policies and procedures, Middle Management was clueless at best and incompetent at worst. A lot of micromanagement prevailed in some departments. Compensation was substandard compared to like roles in other industries.I personally witnessed union busting and protected class discriminatory behavior, which management failed to consider or act upon.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBecome a public traded company, have greater accountability, and replace some of the old guard management team with managers from outside the company.
