    I have been working at Progress Rail, A Caterpillar Company full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Awesome 401K matching! Nice co-workers. Some interesting projects.

    Cons

    Low salaries. Only one week of PTO your first year. The employee turn over rate is ridiculous. Group leaders/managers are over burdened because the company is constantly losing dissatisfied employees and replacing them with new grads with no experience; this forces employees to constantly spend time training. There is also a lot of favoritism and promotions are not based on merit.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to keep experienced people around. Constantly training new people uses up valuable resources.
