I've worked for Caterpillar via an agency for 3 years and there is no interest or want in in making agency workers into full time employee's nor is there any place for advancement.

Pros

Horrible people

I would not like to work for this company. They discriminate people who have mental illness such as my ex colleague. HR woman poured water on my book and they kicked me out because I disagreed on one point with a Junior employee.

The best company I have worked for as of yet.

Amazing company, although if you are looking to get higher than basic management you will need to apply externally as internal promotions stop at basic management levels. Great atmosphere however as it is an American company, some american values come over, like the work culture. It is expected of you to work 7 days a week sometimes in peak periods.

good place to work

good place to work, good pay and conditions, management were good to work for as were the lads you worked with, no real complaints, the only down side is getting a contract which is very hard to get or should i say near impossible unless you are a relative or a very good friend of a manager,
