The policies at Caterpillar are changing to become more family friendly and adjustable work schedules. The real problem is unconscious bias that permeates the culture, particularly in the division I work in. It is very male dominated, aggressive, "I" focused and truly a "good 'ole boys" network. Assignments are given based on who you know and whomever followed a very traditional/prescribed recipe of previous assignments to get to a leadership position. There is not much diversity of thought or valued experience.

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    6 paid / unpaid

    My first time taking maternity leave (in 2002) my company policy was only 4 weeks paid maternity leave, unless otherwise written by doctor's orders. I had my doctor release me after 6 weeks, which is how I got a full 6 weeks maternity leave, which at the time was the government standard (which my Fortune 50 company wasn't following).

    Maybe. There is a lot of focus on Women in Leadership at Caterpillar currently. Some divisions are adopting this "initiative" better/more quickly than others. Also, there seems to be a strong focus on acquiring new talent, so if you're new to Caterpillar or considering a role here, I think it could be good. What is disappointing to me is that they have A LOT of qualified, capable, experienced women in the middle management/professional positions that there are not actionable plans to retain and/or promote them. All our statistics show that our weakest area of women representation is in this middle range -- and yet we don't seem to be focused on how we grow people in that arena.

Be yourself : it is really easy to fee yourself forced to adopt some behavior and mindset to adapt in a new environment. In GE the only recommended way to pursue some carreer is to stick to your value and be flexible on customer goal only.

    Flexibility really depends from your management. My last manager was really inflexible on time management and face time. But it is really unusual inside GE to have such behavior.

    Yes

  • One Thing Employer Could Improve

    Improve work-life balance and policies (e.g. flex-time, limit face time)

I worked for the company less than a year and was promoted to store manager. Promote within the store as much as possible.
