    Pros

    Friendly, very safe all safety questions are taken more serious than most other things.

    Cons

    HR runs itself like a secret organization manking people dissapear and snap decisions on disciplinary action without much investigation that involves leaving the office. Management in general rearely leaves the office or understands the actual environment and people around them.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your chairs a little more to see what your workers are actually doing.

    I worked at Cummins Filtration full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company that takes pride in their industry and employees. Great benefits for medical and dental. Has a great 401k plan with a matching contribution.

    Cons

    Nothing really bad to say about the company. They did move their manufacturing facility out of Lake Mills, Iowa to Mexico. It was a business decision. They did compensate their employees well. I got my BA degree and they paid for it.

    Advice to Management

    Bring more jobs back to the U.S. The employees that were employed in Lake Mills were very well trained and would like to work for Cummins again.

    Pros

    Excellent salary, can make your own hours, ability to work from home

    Cons

    low headcount which mean no work/life balance, every 4 to 5 years they reorganize resulting in lake of confidence in management and lack of job security.

    Advice to Management

    Think more about your employees and less about stockholders.

    Pros

    local for me (short drive everyday), 3 shifts so it should work for anyone, only eight hours from start to end of shift

    Cons

    WAGES EXTREMELY UNFAIR!!! Seems like they draw a name out of a hat & decide who gets paid what. Supposedly they pay you on previous factory experience, (& say it is also based on education, attendance & job performance), but that is NOT so in MOST cases. They use Kelly Services to hire on new people, then after 3 months or 6 months or more, (although they post hiring on after 90 days) they hire those people. However they DO NOT go by ANY performance on the job or attendance in that trial period. What a perfect opportunity to see what kind of employee they are, by having them work in YOUR facility, doing the job that you would be hiring them for. Instead they call previous employers, where the ONLY information you get from a previous employer is start & end date and position held. This DOES NOT tell you if this person was a hard worker with good attendance, got along good with people & worked to better the company or not. That person could have been the laziest person ever, showed up to work whenever they felt like it, robbed the place blind & came to work drunk or hungover every day, YET, BECAUSE they have previous factory type experience, they are started out at a much higher wage that one who has not. It seems as the hardest working employees, who pay attention to detail, quality & safety, get started out at the lowest possible wage. Then supposedly are to receive periodic reviews that will result in a raise of some sort, (at 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, 18 months & 24 months.) but unless you badger them over & over, they ignore any kind of raise. Once you have reached the 24 months, it is done annually. ALSO, after getting hired on, you are on your own if you have any questions concerning anything benefits, changes etc. Four people in Human Resource department, and have NO idea what they do. If you go in with a question, they hand you a pamphlet with a phone number to call. If you try to talk to someone about wages etc., there is nothing they can do, as they have a "spreadsheet" that they go by. This is NOT just one persons point of view, I would guess that the majority of the employees here, feel this way. It is joked about on all 3 shifts, daily.

    Advice to Management

    WHY wouldn't you start EVERYONE at the same rate of pay to start, then give them raises according to their performance on the job? Then if you did a great job you would be rewarded for it, & if you are only there for a paycheck, then that is all you get. Although each persons hire on rate of pay is SUPPOSED to be confidential, everyone talks. We all know what most people make. It causes a LOT of hard feelings and EXTREMELY POOR ATTITUDES at work. I don't know if all Cummins facilities pay the same way or not, but this is how Neillsville, Wisconsin does it. I would love to be able to talk to someone about this and ACTUALLY know that they would look into this and see what could be done, rather than say "ok, I'll see what I can do", and never think about it again, the minute you walk out the door. I DID recommend this to 3 close family & friends & AM SO ASHAMED that I got them into this. Two of them are still there, two of the hardest workers, in different departments, machine operators, volunteer for overtime, help train others, and both making $11.75 per hour. We have tried to talk to management & HR about this, as it is obviously a mistake, but no one will even attempt to do anything.

    Pros

    Cummins is a very stable company with great retirement benefits. The work is interesting and most developement teams are great to work with

    Cons

    A poor employee rating and ranking system. Employees that stay under the radar are ranked average and left alone. Those that step up the plate and take on risk are not rewarded and often poorly ranked if a project has minor issues,

    Advice to Management

    Ensure the experienced employees are treated with respect and dignity. A new manager to a department needs to take time to absorb the culture of the group before unfairly reviewing employees.

    I have been working at Cummins Filtration full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are OK. Most people are pretty friendly and get along well with their peers and colleagues. Well balanced in gender and ethnic diversity.

    Cons

    I have noticed instances where upper management does not seem to agree on strategy. Execs always pressing for growth but no investment in tools and employees to get there. Sales have been pretty flat since 2008. Medical insurance is OK as long as you are alright with a high deductible medical plan. If I had a large family on my plan this would be a concern. Career growth seems pretty limited if you stay in filtration business. Many people move to jobs in other areas of Cummins to grow. Filtration business culture does not seem to match total Cummins culture. Execs talk about it, but actions speak otherwise. Not much employee engagement activity. Plan kickoffs, team building sessions and events are lacking. Seems like a symptom of everyone being overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Product quality is a problem but no one wants to sincerely address it. Focus on quality and delivery to build customer loyalty. Pick a strategy and be consistent. Switching around initiatives year after year keeps employees guessing about what is important. Everyone working on their own thing within different areas. Get everyone on the same page so all work together for a common goal.

    Pros

    Stable company, takes decent care of employees who stick around.

    Cons

    No one seems to enjoy their job. There is very little laughter or conversation in the office, and no energy to be found anywhere. Everyone and everything moves slowly, it takes forever for anything to get done. Little room for growth.
