    Pros

    A company that has all the right core values and ethics. Stable and conservative company for long term career seekers with one company. A company focused on globalization and growing rapidly creating career opportunities for those who want to advance and grow.

    Cons

    Compensation and bonus is low and not competitive compared to other companies in the same sector. Over played Six Sigma requirement for all employees defeats the original intent of Six Sigma creating too many useless projects that do not amount to any savings on cost or efficiency gains.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cummins needs to focus more on technology and product innovations to be a market segment leader in the global market. Too many "me too" products with no real value proposition with high price is the common feedback.
