    I worked at PACCAR (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good people, for the most part. Security. Decent pay and benefits including a pension. Great work life balance. Management track (for IT) includes rotation to different cities including Europe and Asia. Definite room to grow and move-up.

    Cons

    Traditional corporate culture, business attire every day. Low performers are not weeded out or held accountable. Management can vary a lot in experience and style.
