    I worked at Caterpillar full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Caterpillar is an amazing organization. It is beyond fulfilling to be a part of a company that has such an impact on the shape of the world as we see it - from excavation equipment, to being essential in mining operations, to the transport of commerce on the vast network of rail lines across multiple countries. They treat one another with respect and it is a truly collaborative environment.

    Cons

    Redundant positions can actually create a lack of work. For employees who are extremely motivated this can lead to boredom and a lack of fulfillment.

    Pros

    Professional organisation with a structured hierarchy, salary grade system, pay and performance review. Excellent processes with a high level of focus on quality. Excellent graduate training programme and support for development. Benefits package (bonus, pension and share scheme) is very good.

    Could be a bit "corporate" at times. Structured hierarchy and salary grade can feel a bit restrictive for an ambitious young engineer.
