I have been working at Caterpillar full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great pay, talented people, great bosses (my experience), they invest in people and training. Solid company with great values that they really stand behind.

Cons

Conservative culture, slow moving, bureaucratic. Location is the biggest issue for me and more and more folks. Very few opportunities to move geographically (especially internationally) anymore.

Advice to Management

Be flexible, think about your people, and what's best for the enterprise

    Pros

    People that work, good supervisors at 1 or 2 levels but from there..... Hope

    Cons

    Lack of leading from the front, fear of being fired if you don't conform or agree, leadership is way to thin, no boss has any time b/c his boss is on him... Probably b/c his boss is on him etc etc... There are good leaders in d- town. Let them lead. We'll follow!

    Advice to Management

    If your 25 or above congrats b/c my boss is lower and works really hard every day and no one cares....you stop caring at 25! Vp, p, reality check- seed, grow, harvest, = $. Can't do it w/out the seed. Treat people like people. Were loosing a lot of talent and many more to come from both sides.
