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

Pros

Great place to work alongside with some of the brightest minds in the industry. Good support from supervisors and teammates

Cons

Location is not the greatest if you are used to a fast paced life style. 2.5 Hours from the nearest big city. Extreme Highs and lows (company's economical situation). But that is just the way in the industry.

Advice to Management

It would be great if Management focused on providing better recognition and compensation. Try to incorporate better team building methods.

    I have been working at Caterpillar full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great Brand; Devoted Workforce; still some well meaning managers left.

    Cons

    Racist Company : Anti Minority. Advise all Chinese, African-American, Indians to look for employment elsewhere. There have been a few minorities promoted for window dressing purposes only. Too many outsider senior leaders who don't know the products and exhibit automotive industry's poor values and ethics.

    Advice to Management

    Please show some values and stop permanent layoffs of loyal employees. The Company is generating enough cash flow - show some loyalty to your employees. Doug - what is your legacy going to be?

    I worked at Caterpillar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people at the junior levels

    Cons

    Upper management plays favorites. Will easily throw people under the bus to cover their 6. Are not considerate of veterans or looking to help acclimate veterans to the civilian sector. Many former colleges choose to leave and return to military service or choose another avenue of employment.

    Advice to Management

    Be considerate of others especially those who are transitioning from military service. Being addressed as sir or ma'am is just a sign of respect not an insult.
