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

Current Employee - Part-Time Student

I have been working at John Deere part-time for more than a year

Pros

Great experience and pay for students. Flexible work hours. Valuable work that is more than just "intern" work. People encourage each other to succeed. Deere sticks to its values.

Cons

Large company can be a pro and con.
