    I worked at Caterpillar as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Strong work ethic and teamwork oriented systems which steepen learning curves and provide excellent exposure. Senior management has great vision and will continue to ensure that CAT stays at the top of the table in the mining and construction sector.

    Cons

    Pin holed work profile allowed for strong vertical growth but constrained breadth in terms of job functions.

    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.
