"Not a bad company to work for, if you can stand being super conservative and old school."

Pros

Seventy plus years of profitability.
Been around for one hundred plus years, very stable.
PACCAR makes quality products.
Global company.
Good benefit.

Cons

VERY CONSERVATIVE, i.e:
Dress code - almost everyone is in a black suit, bright color clothing is "strongly discouraged".
Strict work schedule, no option for telecommute, compressed work week.
No work-life balance.
Too many petty and unnecessary rules, i.e. no Starbucks during breaks because we'd be spending corporate time for a cup of coffee; no Pepsi because they did no purchase our trucks; no Mercedes-Benz because they're a competitor; shouldn't use the elevator if you're only going up or down one floor.
Depending on management, employees may not feel appreciative.

Advice to Management

Stop the petty rules, employees are full grown adults and the majority knows how to manage themselves; we're no longer in grade school. Stop managing by fear; once the economy picks up, all of your good employees will be gone. Doesn't help morale either.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    At present, the best thing is that it is an income. Formerly, it was a place to make a contribution and a product to be proud of.

    Cons

    Decision making has been pulled upwards to where very few people have the authority to make a decision. And those that can, don't. The company no longer enrolls employees to solve problems, save money, to participate in the company; all things are imposed downward. It is a place of fear, powerlessness, apathy.

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourself. Your need for absolute control is stifling everything and everybody. Good things are possible by enrolling employees to use the talents you supposedly hired us for.

    Pros

    They make the best trucks out there. Very stable employment - I knew people who worked there for years. They paid for school. The provide a pension. The latest technology (for customers).

    Cons

    Management ruled by fear. They did not seem open to new ideas. They seem very cheap with regards to new technology (for employees).

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so high and mighty - listen to your employees ideas
