I have been working at Caterpillar as a contractor (Less than a year)
Group dynamics, teamwork is clearly a priority within the working group. Career progression occurs at all levels.
Recent Market conditions are driving job cuts and news was given one week, with a follow up of more job cuts announced the following week. As a "contractor" this makes you wonder when they're going to tap you on the shoulder to let you know its your last day since they rarely convert "contractors" to full-time employees.
Advice to Management
Keep the news in one announcement. Offering up additional cuts a week later begets the question "are they going to announce yet more next week?"
