Lost Complete Faith in this company

In my division there is a thick top layer of management, they wont move out of their positions to let the bottom people move up. Adding to this they lack to the skill to be where they are, but since they have seniority they get to stay where they... read more

Hypocrisy at its highest

Hypocrisy of Caterpillar higher-ups never stops to amaze me. They continuously promote safety, but that doesn't translate into practice. When accidents happen, and they happen a lot, they always blame the workers instead of the lack of training or... read more

Why have layoffs when you can fire everybody
