Caterpillar Named One of Woman Engineer’s “Top 50 Employers” in 2015

April 24, 2015

Caterpillar ranked number 8 on Woman Engineer magazine’s “Top 50 Employers” in 2015. The magazine's readers selected the top companies in the United States for which they would most like to work or that they believe would provide a positive working environment for women engineers.

“In my 26 years as an engineer at Caterpillar, I’ve had the opportunity to travel the world, working on interesting and rewarding assignments. I’ve had supportive leadership that has challenged me throughout my career,” said Stacey DelVecchio, product manager.

Jean Savage, vice president with responsibility for Advanced Components and Systems, added, “Caterpillar truly values diverse backgrounds and experiences of all employees, and this drives innovation. As a woman engineer, I have had the opportunity not only to help develop industry-leading products and solutions, but also to develop as a leader of a manufacturing and engineering organization.”

At Caterpillar there are many opportunities for growth and new skill acquisition. Irma Khan, marketing consultant, noted, “Caterpillar provides opportunities for women engineers well beyond the engineering function. Though I have an engineering degree, I work in sales and marketing and have significant opportunities for direct interaction with our dealers and our customers. There are no boundaries around what you can do with an engineering degree at Caterpillar.”

Along with a positive working environment, a diverse workforce and growth opportunities, Caterpillar strives to provide quality work-life balance. Kelsey Anderson, development programs supervisor, shared her experience with the company. “During my 13-year career with Caterpillar, I’ve lived a mechanical engineer’s dream, both getting my hands dirty and helping launch industry-first products,” she said. “I’ve been granted the flexibility to be fully engaged with both my work and my family. In return I’ve shared my unique ideas and perspectives to improve the way we do business.”

Woman Engineer readers, who work and study at private-sector companies, government agencies, colleges and universities, received the survey in the mail for completion.
