    Primary US engineering location is columbus Indiana. Not a lot to do there, especially for young professionals

    Pay is not very competitive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the compensation packages a bit more competitive.
    Move some engineering jobs to metropolitan areas.

    I worked at Cummins

    Pros

    Great people, caring company culture, lots of international opportunities. Almost everyone in Columbus, Indiana (location of their world headquarters) works there or has a family member who does. Everyone in the area really respects Cummins because they've done so much for the community.

    Cons

    Mostly, I just don't want to work with engines. I'm in marketing and this just wasn't the most interesting product to market (for me, at least). As a young person local to the area, I also didn't want to have any chance of working in Columbus in the future, although they do have a lot of opportunities in other places, so that was less of a factor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly, if I were Cummins, I would move headquarters someplace other than Columbus. I just don't understand how they can possibly attract the level of talent they need to a small town in the middle of nowhere in Indiana. However, as a local, I know that the local economy would basically collapse without Cummins. Even though I don't wish to return to my hometown, I still want it to be a good place for other people, so I hope they do decide to stay.
