      Worst place for Employee Growth and Development(India)

      Jan 2, 2016 - Manufacturing Engineer in Chennai
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Decent pay, good work life balance, good work culture except chennai offices Good place to work for women as they have good policies on avoiding sexual harassment.

      Cons

      No growth and development in Chennai offices Bad work culture here unlike in USA They always run after the hours rather than focussing on employee growth and development, no timely promotions.. Oppurtunities are given to only Tamilians, No diversity no inclusion...if you are a non tamilian you should forget about you career growth Managers and supervisors uplift their sub ordinates only those who worship them as gods and does personal favours......like get food for them, pay bills for them, give gifts, This is definitely not a place if you are ambitious... People who still work here are those who are either not ambitious or lack in skills that outside market wants, few members are exceptional though. Currently Cat is going throught rough case until 2018, but this is not uncommon to US over past several years. Managers at chennai offices does emotional blackmail their subordinates ....Cat never sponsers H1B visas,they sponsor only L1B , H3 and J1 visas, onsite travels are limited to only 1 year even though project requires us to be there which is pathetic, and they give those only their Tamil pets which is disasterous . You are very lucky if you get a promotion under 3years. Interal depart movements are just for a name sake and never happened transparently. So please do not expect that job change within CAT is as easy as possible , this is true especially in India that too in chennai.
