Very productive and supportive team member's

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I worked hard to learn as much as possible and move up until I was paid well. Managers are just salesmen who got promoted and never had experience managing people. Be a buttkisser , and you’ll go far in this company!

Cons

low accountability from management, egotism is very high, office gossip

A Dumpster

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

Arrogance, Manipulative Behavior, Obsessive need to control others, A.L, K.W, K.M

Raise The White Flag

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

Stay away - Do not waste your time.

Most of the time, it is easy to spot the narcissist in the room. They are the ones who are working the crowd, loudly sharing fabulous stories that convey a sense of importance and accomplishment so that they can feel admired. This management is experiencing fantasies about fame or glory, exaggerating self-abilities, craving admiration, exploiting others, and lacking empathy. They believe that the world owes them something.

Cons

Exploiting others, Lacking empathy, A.L.

One of the worst companies to work for

Extremely cheap. Hard place to work, coworkers are great but the management sucks. They don’t take into consideration that we are human and have lives outside of work. They expect us not to get sick and harp on us if we do.

Cons

Arrogant supervision, third world countries work methods, snoopers, belligerent

Over-entitled, Petulant Narcissists, Egotistical Management….or maybe not.

From my experience with current Management, they should be cited with questionable ethics. They don’t pay vendors on time. HR does not have an identity in this organization. You get promoted for misconduct. Everyone is below them mentality and the just throw money at things.

Cons

Authoritative/argumentative management style, fighting, drama, gossip, baseless allegations

How Long Will This Continue

There is history and ongoing behavior that raises concerns from Caterpillar local office. What brought my attention to this matter is that they used the exact same sequence of actions towards the more than three people who left the office (Contract/Permanent). You will find a persistent pattern of mistreatment that causes either physical or emotional harm. For example, they will attempt to lower someone's rank, or make the person not look as good, or tear someone down completely. Exercising your power and influence over someone who have little or none will not make you look strong. Keep in mind that leadership is a privilege. When you're in a leadership role, your influence may affect the trajectories of people's entire careers and, often, their lives!.

Pros

(1) I know that this does not represent Caterpillar cove values, culture, & brand.

Cons

(1) Engaging in a course of vexatious comment or conduct against someone, (2) Repeated, unreasonable or inappropriate behaviour directed towards a person, (3) Violent or aggressive behaviour that hurts the mental health, (4) Creating a psychologically unsafe environment filled with fear and anxiety., (5) Lots of passive aggressive behavior.

Stressful & manipulative workplace environment

Current management could be more diplomatic. They use contract-staffing agencies so that if an employee leaves it does not harm their bottom line turnover rate. They also believe contract-staffing employees are easy to let go and no one can question them about it. >>>> THEY WILL HURT YOU AND THEN WILL ACT YOU HURT THEM<<<
