Wide red tape, a dump

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.

Official response from Caterpillar

9 June 2021
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.

Management is terrible

Management is terrible, very low wage for the amount of work and stuff you have to deal with. No appreciation for their workers. Unorganized and very stressful

Cocky

Current management are greatly lacking in empathy and are unwilling to recognize or identify with the feelings and needs of others. They see themselves as above others and feel a strong sense of entitlement and need for admiration. These individuals do not perceive themselves as flawed and are not likely to seek treatment. Therefore, these individuals represent less than one percent of the clinical population.

Arrogant Managers - Don't work for them

More than just arrogance or vanity, grandiosity they have an unrealistic sense of superiority. They believe that they are unique or “special” and can only be understood by other special people. What’s more, they are too good for anything average or ordinary.

Cons

Sensitivity to criticism. Passive aggression. Long-held grudges. Other mental health issues.

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

Toxic people

The whole company is poorly managed with no respect for people.They offer no room to advance or grow as an employee unless you suck up to management/ supervisors . They like to pick on people and send their agents to scare others.

Cons

Drama, Shamers, Energy Swappers, Finger Pointers.

A great company to build a long term career

Pros

420 Friendly Company

Top Notch!!!

They like to harass people especially young professionals. Work environment does not feel all inclusive for everyone. There is a culture of discrimination.

Cons

Management is very argumentative and defensive their communication.

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.

Caterpillar

Caterpillar are a great company to work for. Good hours of work, good benefits package. Only issues are the work load can be up and down. The agency workers are treated like dirt by Randstad who are an awful company on site that does their recruitment. Randstad can make Caterpillar look incompetent.

Pros

Good global company

Cons

Randstad on site

Stable and traditional company

Old school company but lots of flexibility to travel. Midwestern culture but yet very international. Fairly stable but does go through periods of layoffs based on economic conditions.
