I have been working at Caterpillar full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Competitive salary and benefits.
Varied Product line.

Cons

Different departments have different rules and only people with good terms with Manager will get promoted, irrespective of their knowledge in some areas.Long term CAT will suffer because of these inefficient people being promoted.

Advice to Management

Please promote people with good knowledge in CORE groups and see that CAT is the leader and other companies follow us.Right now whatever development happening on our product lines nothing unique when compared to our competitors,we are just following them for catch up,some of the technologies our competitors possess are of at least 15 to 20 years old and we are trying to match them now.
