    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Many chances for advancement if you are willing to move or travel. Produces a good product and the future looks bright.

    Cons

    Pay is below industry standards for most positions. Company has grown too political in the last few years to the point of making employees with different views feel as if they will be retaliated against unless they hold the same views.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees to have different views without being labeled as heretics, remember who the end user is. Improve end user support with known product issues. This will ensure our product will be asked for over our competition which all have their own options in the on highway market.

    I worked at Cummins as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Was a good place to start gaining experience and knowledge for future employment. Developed good relationships and really liked the area. Moving from one job field to another was not uncommon.

    Cons

    Got really annoyed at the excessive amount of inclusion and diversity messages that were constantly thrown at you. At times it felt as if I was a kindergartener constantly being taught how to share.
