    I worked at PACCAR full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy "technical" job. Great for engineers fresh out of college in regards to workload, pay, and benefits. Annual company picnic. There are a couple good managers and supervisors there that truly care about their workers.

    Cons

    "Us vs. Them" mentality. Afraid of change. Quantity is more important than quality resulting in substandard products being released in order to reach deadlines set by technologically impaired or inexperienced management. Teamwork is advertised yet rarely accomplished because of refusal to work together when needed.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the outdated culture because your lifeblood will be all the millennials you are hiring at cheap rates. If you want to keep good ones there, improve quality of work life, offer better benefits, and better pay as they progress. Care more about employee development, which includes the contractors that support you. Work on better interactions between internal departments and external divisions.
