Caterpillar Employee Review
One of the best companies I've ever worked with
I've been in various roles of the company right from systems programmer all the way up to program manager. Excellent management skills, perfect work life balance, good infrastructure and good compensation. Though onsite opportunities are limited, I have the privilege to travel on an international assignment and worked with diversified team. It has been a privilege to work for Caterpillar.
