Featured Review

Former Intern - Technical Marketing Intern

I worked at Caterpillar for less than a year

Pros

Every single person I worked with was informative, knowledgeable, and kind. Projects were real-life work, and not simply meaningless tasks. Cat provided tours through their facilities, and a wider... view of what the company does.

Cons

Communication is difficult
