Culture and Values
This firm is excellent for new grads with working spouses. The problem is that management has some bad individuals heading up new development and the staff or team engineering are overworked. An example of that is to say be prepared to work long hours and require a 2nd income (side job) or spouse who works. You can make double the salary in the south eastern USA not working for Paccar. Remember you are in Seattle and it’s an expensive area (real estate etc). In comparison to Paccar I know people who worked in the aviation industry in the Deep South earning double the money (one income) who paid off their house in ten years. The state you work in (WA) combined with poor management (working people long hours) for mediocre salary amounts (real estate) high cost means if you cannot find work elsewhere then you are welcome to go to Paccar. They pride themselves on so called consecutive years of profit which means they keep salaries low ‘ and care about the board not the employees. Not good

Pros and Cons
Good name Kenworth
Poor management in EE department
