    I have been working at Caterpillar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Professional organisation with a structured hierarchy, salary grade system, pay and performance review. Excellent processes with a high level of focus on quality. Excellent graduate training programme and support for development. Benefits package (bonus, pension and share scheme) is very good.

    Cons

    Could be a bit "corporate" at times. Structured hierarchy and salary grade can feel a bit restrictive for an ambitious young engineer.

    I have been working at Caterpillar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Salary is ok for the area

    Cons

    Work life balance is not good at all, and work in my department is not that interesting. Nobody within the business understands or has any respect for other's workload. Dull and boring office environment despite so many employees in Peterborough - no social scene at all.
