    I have been working at Caterpillar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Large, global company with endless available opportunities. Management is supportive, and coworkers are pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Sometimes overly complicated processes can be the bottle neck of progress. Sometimes need to argue logic to avoid lengthy litigation of previously investigated issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep advocating good processes and encouraging progress.

    Current Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Peoria, IL (US)

    I have been working at Caterpillar full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Pay good but expect a lot of dedication. Company has good stability and has a global foot print.

    Cons

    Moving around within the company is not easy and much different than stated in interviews. Each employee is treated as a potential employee off the street.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good old boys club is not appealing. Listen to people doing the work and obtain their input when seeking positive changes w/in the company.
