    Pros

    Good place to begin your career. Despite being in a sink or swim environment with very little training, you can and will learn a lot. Advancement is about who you know and how you are "perceived."

    Cons

    There is no equality in following policies. Some employees are allowed to do certain things and others are not. Employees are scared to utilize the corporate hotline because of the possible backlash but the company prides itself on treatment of others. The pay is well below average salaries for similar positions. Lots of favoritism, which can literally stop any and every attempt at advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Stop allowing personal relationships affect your ability to actually manage.

    Pros

    Comapny is generally great with employee development, work life balance, and culture. Cummins is a leader in the disel market, that it's easy to take pride in your work.

    Cons

    Benefits are lacking behind competing companies. The diversity aspect is a little much too. The promotion rates derived from reverse-discrimination are hurting more employees than helping.

    Advice to Management

    Forget race and gender when it comes to promotions. Promote person with best work ethic, leadership, and skills

    Pros

    Flexibility, Community Involvement, Great pay, they promote learning/knowledge/growth

    Cons

    Some Managers stay too long. Growth can be difficult if you stay in one area too long. Some areas can be viewed as "click-ish"; tick the wrong person off...and they will be in for you forever.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house in your mid-level mgmt. areas every now and then. You'll find that some mgrs. stifle their employees instead of help to build them. Because people tend to stay in one area for years...there is little to no growth for the driven few.
