Good intentions. Struggle in mid-management implementation.

There seems to be some secret code that must be broken in order to move up beyond Director level. I truly believe the company wants to improve in the gender equality space but just doesn't quite know how to get started in a way that won't feel like an effort to fill a quota. This might be one time that being so metrics driven is a bad thing. My fear is the tendency would be to "check the box" and move on. While the maternity policy is better than where I came from, it and other policies should be reviewed to better align with today's workforce. The company tends to value working insanely long hours more than it does efficiency and productivity. To be attractive to a younger and changing workforce Caterpillar's culture will have to change.

Family-friendly policies and practices vary across the company. Some business units are very flexible, while others almost expect 24/7 availability to the company. Regarding benefits, family/medical leave, etc., it is average. Sad because it used to be ranked very highly as a great place to work.

Corporate initiatives pushing for women have put a bullseye on the backs of women from men. Every female promotion or hire is now met with contempt from the 85% male population that it wasn't earned. And there is NO intersectionality. The company now forces CatPAC info on all US employees which only backs rightwing candidates. At last healthcare change, my birth control now costs $210 with my insurance. They also won't cover mammograms if you're high risk and under 40 regardless of doctor recommendation. My female peers are now being passively derailed in careers based on personality feedback.
