    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    - Management is pretentious and outdated across the organization.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...

      I worked at PACCAR full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Regular paycheck, clean environment, and quailty product brands. Very large firm and chance to position yourself.

      Cons

      This employer puts employees down and makes them either feel less than valuable.; uses opportunity to discard anyone deemed as less than desirable. The method for this is the review process.

I know of a pair of cases where managers were told they needed to rate an employee specifically (which employee stands out the most and which employee...

      Advice to Management

      Examine yourself and treat employees as equals. Treat everyone as you would want to be treated and do not use a discard option like a card game when it comes to employees. I have worked twenty years and seen all styles of management. Other managers have not been allowed to perform these games (played) with employees!
