"For the most part it can be a good place to work. There is a very strong good ole boy mentally and is not a good place for women to work unless you are an admin or have a job that is associated as a woman job. Women have been moved even with high work reviews because supervisor wanted man in position. Women are not usually included in team outings."

"Good place to work and great people to work with if the economy is growing, but as soon as the economy starts slowing down, you're the 1st to get laid off. Insurance from Day One and good pay. Your future here is just too dependent on oil prices to feel secure. Good opportunities to move up if you can stay employed long enough to utilize the tuition reimbursement."

"This company is very political and management heavy. I worked at the Athens facility. One person can turn everything you do into a negative. It did matter if you ask one person can destroy your career. I went exclusively to be close to family. They knew this, promise a review in 30 days. The review happened after 5 months, then they invited you to a conference room, you were let go after no review in the period they promised."

"I have worked for Caterpillar for a total of 4-5 years. I think that they are a great employer, except the downfall is that they have a lot of downturns unfortunately. They are not a stable company to work for as they were years ago."

"Not an awful place to work, but not the top choice for anyone excited by IT. We seem to demand to use technology and software no less than 10 years old and any push for newer technology becomes a multi-year battle covered by miles of red tape. As with any company of this size, change takes time. IT seems to be an after-thought at an Enterprise level so foresight and trends in technology are largely not followed."
