I worked at Caterpillar full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

I had the best of times there. Depending your level of motivation, you can go places.

Cons

Too much nepotism, loyalty reward vs perf reward drive younger folks away. It's still way too Peoria boys driven for a fortune 50 company. Does feel very much 21st century.

Advice to Management

There is a world outside of Peoria and yea more than 50% of sales come from outside the US. Might be about time somebody recognizes it and globalize the company a bit more rather than that mon and pop shop from Peoria style.

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

    Pros

    Great people, dynamic environment, and excellent hands on experience. Upper management is extremely knowledgeable and my current boss is a great role model and mentor.

    Cons

    Some of the union veterans that operate the machinery are clearly there to just collect a paycheck and take no pride in their work or maintaining quality.

    Advice to Management

    Please allow for more advancement and promotions.
