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

Pros

Rewarding and important work responsibilities
Introduced to company culture
Plant visits, etc
Actual Mechanical Engineering Work
They treated interns well
Great and diverse coworkers who guided me along at a fast and fun pace

Cons

Hard time finding a place to live
Pay could have been a bit better.
Other than that, my intern experience with CAT was great, and I highly consider them for full time

    I worked at Caterpillar full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working at Caterpillar most of the time. I liked travel and meeting different people. The projects I worked on were interesting and fun.

    Cons

    Many people were not enjoyable to work with or work for.

    Advice to Management

    Do a better job of getting rid of the dead weight. Don't promote people beyond their capability and then leave them there. Many managers treat employees poorly - this should not be tolerated.

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

    Pros

    it's close to home,relaxed atmosphere,but that's changing since Cat took over for another company

    Cons

    ceo makes 20million a yr and all they do is take from employees. portray their selves as a family,our core value, team all lies. Push older emloyees out. Disagree ask a question THEY'LL GET RID OF YOU. Big on political correctness,but it's a scam for show.Even skilled craftsmen are told their just workers not worth a good wage.

    Advice to Management

    What goes around comes around!
