    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I worked at Caterpillar

    Pros

    Brand Value - a good add to the resume Really good place for someone interested in design of machines and equipment but may not be the same for a software engineer who is into coding and stuff Has principles and methods in place Good leaders

    Cons

    Work pace can be bit slow - but that totally depends on the team and project An old company so the latest trends in tech won’t be followed here until and unless approved by lot of higher management
