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

Pros

Good pay, daytime hours, many networking opportunities, large variety of training opportunities, fun internship, tours of various facilities, good work environment

Cons

It is a very large corporation and at times it may feel like you are just a number; many interns complained of being bored and having a lot of down-time, but that was not the case with me.

    Pros

    As an intern, the salary was very good.

    Cons

    For a company that in 2009 had USD 52 billion in revenues and in 2012, 66 billion, it is very dehumanizing to lay off your people all the time.


  2. "A solid company with a wide range of career options."
