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 - Production Supervisor

I have been working at Progress Rail, A Caterpillar Company full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Fast paced environment with great coworkers. Health benefits are one of the best in the country!

Cons

Need to be willing to get your hands dirty.

Advice to Management

Provide more training for all faculty leaders.
