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

Pros

Steady work/life balance. You wont bring your work home with you and required overtime only happens once every few years.

Cons

Outdated policies on just about everything. Company is straight from the 1950's.

Advice to Management

Relax

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

    Pros

    Good location? Thats about it.

    Cons

    Salary is not competitive at all considering Seattle is one of the top 10 expensive cities in US,
    No employee development -they do have a form to fill out for employee development needs but no follow up, no consideration at all, no external training,
    Very poor top to bottom communication- you will be working on a project but management had already decided to drop the project and u had no clue for weeks or even months!,
    The first thing management does is lie to their employees about the state of bussiness when things are slow,
    The second step they take is move your attention to the future and show brighter prospects in the coming years and assure employees that they will not cut down on the work force AND the next week you come to learn that 10% of manufacturing workforce was cut down along with a handful of engineers in the design dept.
    All in all a very poor management style all the way to the top.

    Advice to Management

    Grow a pair and stand by what you say.
