    I have been working at PACCAR full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay is reasonable, great benefits.

    Cons

    PACCAR is extremely old school, extremely conservative. Preaches open door policy but the hierarchy environment prevents you from even wanting to discuss issues. Hostile work environments are not addressed, some departments are paid much less than others- with 4 times the workload.

    Advice to Management

    Update the culture. Have upper management give performance interviews to lower level employees to verify lower management is providing adequate leadership.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at PACCAR full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Work life balance (if not in accounting) - Pension and 401k plan - 50% tuition reimbursement - Can move around within the company holding many different hats - Can have a long career here if you see that as a positive. Many employees have been with the company 10+ years

    Cons

    - Management is pretentious and outdated across the organization. - Very conservative culture which leads to very slow change in the organization. This also leads to very non progressive work environment and culture. - At corporate office it is business professional attire. However this issue isn’t seen at other locations. - Terrible raise structure favoring external candidates. Don’t start your career here you... will regret it but compensation for the most part isn’t bad if you come in external with experience. In summary this company is only really suited for those late in their career waiting to retire due to the great retirement benefits. If you’re early in your career and want to develop relevant skills and build your resume stay clear.
