    Advice to Management

    Caterpillar Financial claims to be a high and mighty ethically and morally righteous company that lives by its “Shared Values”. The reality is that they are more than willing to throw employees under the bus that they feel are being paid too much. They fabricate narratives of incompetence to substantiate their termination of said employee. Keep in mind they got rid of me, about 12 months after my cancer diagnosis...

    I have been working at CAT Financial full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, good pay, and good office.

    Cons

    Lack of vision and too much red tape. You HAVE to be part of the very close network of individuals to get promoted. Not a company for mid-career hires. They value more the years you have been at Cat than your knowledge and expertise.

    I worked at CAT Financial

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits for area. Job security. Nice building. Some good managers

    Cons

    Leadership directs your career, meaning they pick jobs for you that they need filled even if you don't like the work, or have the skills/experience for it. Sometimes it works out for you, sometimes it doesn't. If you get trapped in a role you have no business being in they make it very hard to move on by setting expectations beyond your capabilities and requiring great performance in your current role to be eligible to...

    Advice to Management

    Let people guide their own careers. When it's clear things aren't working change course instead of spending more time and money on doomed projects.

    Pros

    Good Pay Great People Great ERG's Good Opportunities

    Cons

    Too many bureaucratic Cliques, if you aren't in the right one, you'll go nowhere.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on your employees that are working their tails off then just the FFP's (who a lot of the time are horrible employees and leave after 1-2 years).

    I worked at CAT Financial full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Good pay, great benefits Very good college recruiting program; great place to gain job experience Great group of people to work with overall. Strong social culture (lots of extracurricular's if you're into that sort of thing) Huge, stable company Incredibly nice facility includes cafeteria and gym

    Cons

    Many managers are simply not great at their jobs; bad decisions made frequently due to lack of actual knowledge. Culture still very rigid and outdated about many things. Review process is arduous and has a reputation for being unfair (managers not great at differentiating employees consistently). Many policies are set from HQ in Peoria; people up there can be extremely difficult to work with. Location in downtown...

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up. Don't be so conservative and risk-averse that you miss out on so many huge opportunities.
