Very low percentage of women, majority of men that are leaders do not have working spouses, and do not understand demands of dual career families.

There are great people and great possibilities, but you will spend energy fighting to be equal that maybe you wouldn't need to expend at other companies.

Yes if you are motivated and satisfied to use your grit to succeed - and if you're passionate about the industry - it is best in class within our industries.

Great company, but they need to work on a healthier work/life balance if they want to keep talented employees.

The benefits are great, but men are often promoted more quickly because it is a boys club. It is about who you know and many of the men do not take the time to get to know the women.

Great benefits (such as maternity leave)! However, the company is going through downturns and letting people go. It is a boys club, so being a woman is only a problem if you are hoping to move up in the company.
Job Security. People are being let go rapidly.

Old boys club reigns especially in marketing and accounting. Many other departments have more fairness

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.

6 paid / unpaid
4 weeks paid if natural birth, 6 weeks paid if C-section in the US. But in other global offices, mothers get almost a year off. It would be nice if it was more consistent, although I have to say my local manager was very flexible about allowing me to work from home for 2 additional weeks.

Caterpillar is still a good old boys company. It is making progress but it's slow.
