Dosen't matter how hard you work, they will promote the person who kisses the best but.
Support from management
Management will laugh in your face, I know because it happened to me.
Freedom to work independently
If your being "trained" on something new, and you not a buddy you will get to work independently even if you need help you WILL NOT (tim Johnson) get it.
Communicates well if your a drinking buddy. If your a buddy you'll get all the help you need.
I am a woman, they treat everyone equally bad.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Same as above.
A friend of mine who who management didn't like tried to get a management jod a another plant, and someone in management went into the computer and made it look like he had a level 3, so the other plant as per caterpillar policy couldn't look at him for a
Overall compensation for your work
Actually they pay quite well.
Office / Work Environment
If they don't like you they will put you next to an air cleaner/conditioner that has burned up. In the summer. Yes they did that to me. In NC
No when I was there.
No work-life balance. Last I heard people I worked with were getting surgeries just to get time off work.
The people of Sanford NC know how they treat their employees
If you kiss but.
Same as above.
Not because they care, only they don't want to get in trouble.
I was not very hard, for a welding job.
Inclusive / Diverse
They don't hire the best person, they hire their drinking buddy
Suggestions for improvement
- Get rid of all middle middle management. Clean house. Only give promotions on merit. Not on on how well liked you are. Or, I sorry to say if your a minority. I'm a minority. I think people should only be hired and promoted on merit.
What I like about the company
They pay well. The insurance was good, but with obama care I'm sure it's like all insurance. It's no longer very good and costs a small fortune.
What I dislike about the company
Nepotism. Plain and simple. No work life balance. So much mandatory overtime.
