    I have been working at Cummins (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great work-life balance Very diverse employees Good benefits Committed to employee growth and development Decent visibility from top levels Easy to move within company

    Cons

    They really push for everyone to get six sigma certifications when employees get so stressed about the training/projects that it defeats the purpose or the project is a last-ditch effort to please management so it isn't even necessary in the first place

    Advice to Management

    Make it clear how to move up in the company. Make sure employees are getting every thing they need from their managers. Bad managers that can't train subordinates do exist. Flag the good managers and make sure they are rewarded. Flag the bad ones and have fewer employees report to them

    Unlimited resources available for training, improvement processes and reliable collegues who actively seek out new employees to support. Collegues genuinely care and show their consideration when it comes to yours, as wells as Cummins's success.

    Processes change constantly, so it takes a little while longer for everyone to get on board with all of the the implentations.

    Advice to Management

    Engage more with your direct reports to be consistent and ensuring projects are being completed on time.
