    A great combination of hands on skills and engineering knowledge.

    Management needs to focus on finding employees with skills and knowledge related to the Internal Combustion engine as apposed to hiring the person with the highest degree.

    Pros

    Management cares about employees. Lots of opportunities to move around within the company to expand the career. work-life balance is overall good though it really depends on specific group.

    bureaucracy and low-efficiency in some areas. Pay is not the most competitive either.

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits. Flexible work hours. Company provides a perfect platform for diverse workforce to learn and grow.

    Cons

    unintentionally but frequently we launch IT solutions which are southern Indiana focused.

    Advice to Management

    Longer duration (almost 3 year) of IT transformation without end in sight creates stressing environment.

    Pros

    If you're in the right team, working at Cummins is the best decision you'll ever make. The cross-functional nature of the company allows an employee to grow everyday and move between various functions if he/she chooses to do so. Management is usually supportive and provides the tools/experience that the employee needs. And amongst its peers, the company is doing exceedingly well which translates into a great working environment.

    Cons

    I'm aware of teams around the company that do not have a very open environment, teams that are confrontational when asked for information/assistance and managers that do not care about their direct reports. There are also teams that unnecessarily force Six Sigma down employees' throats when the concept should really be used to implement true change/improvement.
