    I have been working at CAT Financial full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    1) Strong emphasis on career development, 2) Amenities such as on site gym and cafeteria, 3) On site covered parking, 4) Recent trends of HR/management being more understanding and flexible with work schedules. Most work groups are able to work from home/remotely at least one day per week, 5) All managers within a certain work group meet to discuss your annual rating, so it's not 100% dependent on your direct manager's...

    Cons

    1) The College Hire (FFP) program. Too much emphasis is placed on college hires. They are given priority treatment and career opportunities over all other employees. Which is drastically unfair and unwarranted to all other employees who do have college degrees, but were not hired on through the FFP program., 2) Manager selection is chosen. No one has the opportunity to apply for a managerial position. Managers are selected/placed...

    Advice to Management

    1) Less emphasis on the FFP/College hire program, 2) More focus on developing ALL employees who demonstrate talent and leadership abilities, 3) Annual survey be sent to work groups to outline how their manager is doing. This would not only shine a light on faulty managers and problem areas, but would conversely shine a light on managers doing a wonderful job, while simultaneously revealing areas for improvement which...

    I have been working at CAT Financial full-time

    Pros

    I work within the Information Services department at Caterpillar Financial as an IS Analyst. Overall I would say there are some great teams that work within the department and some very talented people. I think it's a great place to get experience working in IT. Plus if you would like a long-term, stable employment with possibilities of "moving up" within the company, (i.e. going in to management) the company would be...

    Cons

    There are a lack of higher-level purely technical jobs available. The emphasis for IS employees is on pursuing leadership positions (i.e. team leads, then management eventually). This is fine for a lot of employees but it drives the people most passionate about technology away from the company.

    Advice to Management

    Establish a path for those employees that are passionate about technology and want to make Caterpillar Financial a stronger competitor within the tech space. We have lost some of our most talented, younger technical people because there were no higher level technical positions available. Allow our talented technical people to reach their potential. Also I don't like the philosophy of "buy first, figure it out later"...
