Senior Project manager

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Memphis, TN

I have been working at Cummins full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGood life-work balance
Potential to work anywhere in the world
Very open to discuss career with upper management

ConsMid-low salaries. Mid-low bonus. HR does not properly communicate salary levels and salary rules are not always followed when employees change jobs inside of the company.
System to prevent unethical behavior and to prevent discrimination does not work well. Some employees simply do not use the confidential hotline and others do not sincerely respond investigations because most people are afraid to be punished by infractor once nothing happens with investigation.

Great company to work for but pay needs to improve

Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee)
Columbus, IN

I worked at Cummins full-time for more than a year

ProsOverall friendly atmosphere. There are some conflicts of course but much better than most larger companies.
Company upper management does a pretty good job of communicating for a company of its size.
Columbus is a small town with very friendly people. This may not be for some though. Good school system as well.
Diverse work force.
Hard workers can move up in the company because company encourages it.

ConsPay is average to below average depending on the job ... I left for a 30% pay increase for the same job and requiring fewer skills.
Upper management does not promote stability due to constant hiring and cutting.
Work / life balance can get out of control if you let it. Must not be afraid to push back to keep a reasonable balance.
Benefits are ok but not as good as might be expected for a company of its size.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the salary works in your manufacturing facilities ... not just the union.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Cummins

ProsGreat people, nice town for starting families.

Great company to work for, values are held on a pedestal, but loyalties are fading fast.

Service Supervisor (Current Employee)
Columbus, IN

I have been working at Cummins full-time for more than 5 years

ProsGreat company to work for, if not for anything, for the people that you get to work with. There is a sense of "doing the right thing" wherever you are in the company, and it feels genuine. They care about the environment, and improving the community with them wherever they are. Employees are open minded, so even though projects can be boring, there is always some fun around.

ConsNot the best salaries in the business, although not the worst either. Upper management does not inspire confidence at all. One day they hire thousands, next day they fire just as many. Politics everywhere, you need to know people to advance.

Advice to Senior ManagementCreate a sense of stability within the company. People can't be productive when they see others around them being let go all the time. Loyalty seems to be fading fast, and it's both ways. All the good the company does becomes meaningless fast when you don't feel secure.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
