Come here for a couple months if you’re really hard up for money but don’t stay. There’s an old boys club and day shift is treated like a reward for putting up with them.

Caterpillar était une très bonne entreprise, j'ai passé 11 ans là-bas, j'espérais terminé ma carrière dans cette entreprise, malheureusement le sort en à décidé autrement, maintenant je ne suis pas la pour dénigrer Caterpillar, et encore moins pour dire qui a tort ou raison, mon problème c'est que je n'ai plus d'emploi à leur actuel, et on ne ce refait pas une suite de carrière comme ça, maintenant j'ai difficile de retrouver un emploi stable, c'est surtout ce que je recherche. Caterpillar me manquera toujours.
Pros
Toute les qualités de travailler dans une grande multinationales.
Cons
Fermeture de l'entreprise.

Only reason I quit was I wanted to come back to Indiana otherwise I'd still be working there. My supervisor was a really good supervisor as a matter fact when he learned that I was leaving gave me a letter of recommendation for I left and I didn't even ask for it.

Learned a lot during my time at Caterpillar. I had wonderful mentors and co-workers. Some of the smaller facilities can have so-so leadership but it was a wonderful experience overall.

Upper management applies a lot of pressure on lower management. So that lower management will apply a lot of pressure on the hourly workers.And you will rarely have the materials or support you need to be successful.
Pros
Good pay

Pros
Pay, benefits, bonus, paid shutdown

Mangers are just barking dogs. They don’t deserve any respect for all the things they do to their employees. Their sales guys lick their lips too frequently with peculiar smile.
Cons

It's hard to put your finger on what exactly makes a person seem "creepy," but as it turns out, the habits of creepy people do have some consistency to them. Some Territory sales managers interestingly have the following characteristics: peculiar smile, bulging eyes, dressed oddly, & Licking their lips too frequently.
Cons
Making it impossible to leave without seeming rude, Showing too much or too little emotion, stalking and lurking.

Some managers behave in a way that introduce an uncomfortable ambiguity into social interactions. Most creepy people seem to have no idea of what they do that makes them so unsettling. Some sales guys have greasy or unkempt hair, or wear dirty or odd clothes.
Cons
Smiling oddly or insincerely, Licking their lips too frequently, & Acting too friendly.

From my experience with current employees at Cat financial office in Canada. They have jealousy driven by low self-esteem or poor self-image. Some individuals have peculiar smile, bulging eyes, & Displaying too much or too little emotion.
Cons
Stalking and Lurking, being unusually quiet and staring, K.W, following people, behaving abnormally, & socially awkward.

We are disappointed in the experience you’ve shared here. Our leaders are expected to hold stake in the success and growth of their direct reports, and it sounds like you feel you aren’t getting that support. Your feedback helps us improve and we appreciate your honesty.

You can do minimal work all day as long as you do it safely, can't use your hands to do simple tasks. Always have to fix someone else's mistakes. No moral.

A management that cares about its employees careers will retain them, whereas others have lost the battle of talent. Respect is earned not demanded...
