    I worked at Cummins-Allison full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The employees are nice and the company picnic.

    Cons

    No true Project Managers. Management has the design engineers who have no PM experience managing projects and new products are poorly managed and poorly designed for manufacturability and spend months trying to fix all the issues once it hits the production floor. Sales runs the company. Too many managers, directors and VP's most who have very little management education. Cost reductions are causing suppliers to cut corners and deliver defective parts. With that, engineers cannot fix the problem because that would add cost back to the part to make it correctly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue of what is going on in the company. Get some management classes. You cannot manage. Just because you have been there for 10 years does not mean you should be promoted to a manager. Stop nickel and diming your suppliers to death. When production has all the defects worked out of new products only then should Sales be able to go out and promote the product.
