    I have been working at Carolina CAT full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    At Carolina CAT, there is a true symbiotic relationship between the employees and the company. By working hard, the employees positively impact the company and as the company grows, it rewards its employees. As an interviewee, I finished the interview process wondering if this could really be the "working way" -- now that I am a member of the team, I can confidently report that yes, the company works to better the employee while the employee works to better the company!

    Cons

    As with any company, there is a learning curve and not everything is intuitive. Ask questions -- during the interview and, if applicable, once you join the team. Often times, people don't remember what is new information to new employee -- every company functions differently. In order to thrive, you must be willing to get involved and take initiative. While this may not seem like a con, if it is not in your nature to ask questions and be forward focused, the transition to CTE may seem a bit open-ended to you.

    Pros

    Good pay and location if you live in north Charlotte. Benefits are really good but that's how they try and keep you.

    Cons

    The facility is out dated and dirty. Techs probably don't care because they're dressed for it. Why not let all employees be Jean casual in an industry like this?
