I have been working at Caterpillar part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Everyone I have met through my work experience at Caterpillar has been very gracious, understanding, and hard working. From the shop floor to the CEO's office, you will find very friendly people who are there to do business, and do it well.

Right now the business is booming, and is only in the first stages of a sharp growth period. The work is there, so for industrious men and women, a future can be made that will make the past two years of economic sluggishness recede as any bad memory should.

Cons

The heavy equipment industry is hard work. Hot, dangerous work.

Unfortunately, sometimes money supersedes values.

Advice to Management

To be the best leader, you have to be the best follower.

    I have been working at Caterpillar full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay good but expect a lot of dedication. Company has good stability and has a global foot print.

    Cons

    Moving around within the company is not easy and much different than stated in interviews. Each employee is treated as a potential employee off the street.

    Advice to Management

    Good old boys club is not appealing. Listen to people doing the work and obtain their input when seeking positive changes w/in the company.
