Program Manager

"PACCAR is a fortune 130 company, with more than 80 years of profitability. They claim to be a technology company but are truly a close follower. They design and manufacture medium and heavy duty commercial vehicles which is a conservative product space with slow technology changes. The company is very fiscally and socially conservative but has recently started to embrace diversity."

"Company focus is profitability, not being profitable through operational efficiency.Culture is style over substance. Therefore people get promoted by looking good, not understand how the operation works.As a result, goals a vague, impossible to achieve, but non-managers are held to them.Management direction is top down and will not accept lower employee's know more than Sr. Leaders.Very difficult place to work if not a long term career PACCAR employee."
