Does Caterpillar offer dental insurance?

Pros

Benefits(PTO, 401k, medical insurance w/ dental and vision, tuition assistance, paid parental leave, etc), regular hours (only occasional mandatory overtime with some optional overtime as well), competitive pay, quarterly gain share bonus, a diverse and talented workforce, opportunity for advancement. Safety culture/safe work environment.

Cons

Tight build schedules, supply chain constraints, a minor culture of preference towards those who have been with the company for years. Nothing that is unique to this company or facility.

Advice to Management

Continue to directly hire experienced employees and don't revert to making nearly all entry level employees come in through a temp agency initially. Find a more direct way to seek out ideas from floor level employees in addition to the current CI program. Provide better communication about possible short term shutdowns to avoid gossip and decreased morale among floor workers.
