    I have been working at Cummins Filtration as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The company treats its engineers very well, but not so much with the rest of the workers. The quality of your job will be fully dependent on the quality of your manager. Although, most managers are very good both personally and professionally.

    Cons

    Corporate is implementing many strategies that many people disagree with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Factor in the "voice of the customer" when making decisions that will impact your workers.

    I worked at Cummins Filtration full-time

    Pros

    OK benefits. The front bathrooms are really nice. The people in the Neillsville area are rather pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Poor management, poor work life balance. Poor health insurance. Must work every weekend. The building is always extremely warm, maybe because they vent there heaters inside the building. Management regularly recruits new college graduates with no experience and utilize them to drive the production and productivity with no understanding of typical production on a factory floor. The company also regularly wastes large quantities of money on million dollar projects designed by a single college graduate or individual who desires to own the entire project and is not asked or required to gather input from multiple people or disciplines to provide success for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Starting acting like a company run by shareholders. Stop letting the plant management treat employees as though they have nothing to offer other than their Saturdays and Sundays.

    I have been working at Cummins Filtration as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    It seems to be a great place for engineers. They provide great experience for interns and co-ops.

    Cons

    If you are not an engineer you will likely start as a technician with no real opportunity for advancement. They do not hire their contingent employees and expect them to work for 2+ years with no benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work-life balance is good, time off policies if you are hired on seem descent.

    Pros

    Best temp paying job at the time

    Cons

    Management treats you like you don't matter. Don't ask about getting hired for a full time job because they will tell you anything to get you back to work.
    Full time employees tell you what management doesn't want you to know....the TRUTH !!
    Yet they blame the troubles on the full timers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not tell temps you will hire them when you know you won't.
    Your turn over will stay the same or climb even higher not because of the truth coming out but because management forgets who got this company up and going
    Sure wish the real managemnet from the top down could see what really happens with all the favorites.

    Former Employee - Filtration Division Intern in Madison, WI

    I worked at Cummins Filtration as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Pretty free in direction if you get the right manager(for internship), Good place to work overall in terms of benefits and outside resources to get involved in the community

    Cons

    A lot of bureaucracy, too much for me to want to work there, 6 sigma projects required for *ANY* promotion (results in worthless projects being pursued, and repeated), Technological dark age in comparison to other divisions, personnel typically under-utilized, they will not hesitate to send the actual engineering to some data center in India(not very fulfilling if you're an engineer)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, they know what makes them 'innefficient' and will usually tell you and tell you often.
