Very productive and supportive team member's

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I worked hard to learn as much as possible and move up until I was paid well. Managers are just salesmen who got promoted and never had experience managing people. Be a buttkisser , and you’ll go far in this company!

Cons

low accountability from management, egotism is very high, office gossip

Be a leader, not a cheerleader.

Management is Choosing status over results. Choosing popularity over accountability. Choosing certainty over clarity. Cultures can be toxic when products never work, core values are flawed, employees are abused, etc., but the one component you typically spot first is where cheerleaders are masquerading as leaders.

Fantastic place to work

The Cat Canada team has the most committed and professional teams I have ever worked with. Starting with the HR process that works very well, very responsive and they really care about the applicant.

Inflated sense of their own importance

They don’t appreciate you as an intellectual asset. You are just a tool that is used to get them their numbers. Management is not all there. They always think someone is out there to get them.

Cons

Not an equal opportunity employer.

Terrible place to work for!

Do not work here you are required to do more and more and your pay will stay the same. Management hides benefits from the employees. They always instigate others to attack a group of people or one person.

They don’t show respect to people

They like to argue a lot. Management could be more diplomatic in their behaviour and communication. Lots of games and fighting with people. They enjoy attacking others.

Cons

Fighting, bad mouthing, lack of communication., bad working environment.

Not worth working for! Don’t work here.

Working for this company is the worst mistake I have made in my entire life. They have a group of experienced individuals that are showing their skills on young people. Managed by a wise guy that has favourites. They think everyone is out to get them.

Very aggressive with poor communication skills

You would expect top standards from an organization like this one but unfortunately its being managed by some interesting group of people. They know it all and always right. Current management is unprofessional and has create an unsafe environment for young individuals mainly because how A.L “the wise guy”.

Problem behavior is a consistent pattern.

Management likes to instigate problems between people and attempt to create unsafe environment for people. People with problem behaviors often require medical intervention to improve their symptoms. They are very hard to deal with.

Cons

troublemaker, bad mouthing others, disrespectful to people, they don’t want you to express your opinion.

Fun place but not appreciated by management

Sometimes you can't see yourself clearly until you see yourself through the eyes of others. I have been working for the company for some time now and they always think they are right and play the victim. They like to call people names and make fun of them.

Pros

Good Pension, insurance, etc..

Cons

Has toxic people you need to keep up with such as, salespeople.

Full of themselves

Experienced sales guys showing off their skills on people. They like to call people names, mock others, disrespecting others. Every business has corporate standards except for this office. It’s very political. Very bad work environment.

Favorable to certain individuals

They got used to getting everything they want. The office is across the street from a university but their management does not support young professionals. They will go out their way to apply their agenda.

Cons

Lots of games, not a young professional work environment., creating problems for others, creating problems where there are none.

These People characterized as being disreputable

They will not learn until they go through what they do to others. They enjoy playing games and always avoid giving a definite answer or position. They believe they have the right to control others.

There is better options out there

They like to delay things in people’s lives just for them to apply their agendas and facilitate their abuse. This company is not for young professionals who are starting their careers or life.

Cons

Entire office

Management needs change

A bad attitude is like a flat tire; you can't go anywhere until you change it. Management always fails to meet customer expectations. Some managers are not fully aware of the products provided. They are afraid of failure or even the consequences of success.

Cons

Using Negative Language, Rude Behavior and Bad Attitudes., No Empathy., Aboulomania.

Management is Not all there

Management/employees that work here are not all there. Unstable emotions mean that their moods can be extreme and change very quickly. Some examples of unstable emotions are: Extreme depression, anxiety or irritability that might last for only a few hours or days, usually in response to a stressful event. Intense anger or difficulty controlling anger.

Cons

mentally unstable

yapa yapa yapa shut it please

What i have learned from this management is that they like to bad mouth others, start problems, make up things, and go around saying thing on people that are not in them or fishing for something wrong. Blame others for things that go wrong at the workplace, or may assume that people are out to get them or their job.

Cons

Blame others for things that go wrong, Bad Manners, rumor mongers, interfere in other people's business.

Hard people to deal with!

They like to make fun of others using different intimidation techniques. instigating problems and hate between people to gain or apply their own agendas. The only taste of success these people have is when they take a bite out of you!

My opinion on Caterpillar

Never seen a group of managers like this one. They are rude and full of themselves while everyone is making fun of them. They like to fight and make others fight.

Cons

arrogance like no other, they like to throw money at things, they like to fight.

don't damage your career

I feel bad for all of those who gone through dark times from this management. I would avoid at all cost. Apparently, even if they let you resume your career goals or path they either restrict it or let you go work far away. Unfortunately, word of mouth other companies in the area are scared of them.

Cons

They will delay your career path or even change it - not for young people.

bad company, terrible training, zero support

Not a safe work environment for young professionals. Their functional office in Burlington, Ontario, Canada is near a university and they like to block people from pursuing their careers. Would not recommend anyone who wants to start their career here. Bad management! They don’t want people to talk and like to make up stories on people.

Cons

lack transparency and clarity, Gossip, fighting, drama, they like to instigate problems for others or make people fight with each other.
