    I worked at Cummins as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The atmosphere at Cummins is very laid back. The managers and supervisors are supportive. Great diversity and many social events during the summer including the Cricket Tournament and Float & Roast.

    Cons

    There is a lot of training and reading involved in order to catch up with Cummins' technology and learn how they go about doing things. There many meetings throughout the day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since there are many cross-functional departments and teams working on one product, it would be helpful to present a PowerPoint describing all of the teams involved and their relationship to what you will be working on. This will be extremely beneficial to any intern or new employee, especially in the engineering department. It will be a starting point to know who to refer to when you run into problems.

    The HQ Location is not the best

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As Location is not the best ..good talent will try to move to a mediocre company with better location ..Improving a location is not something the management can do however, they need to try other things in terms of benefits to retain the talent.

    Cummins has the best culture. Everyone you work with is really friendly and helpful. I learned a ton from the people in my department

    Pros

    You will get the opportunity to learn and develop your talents. Great teamwork from all the employees.

    Cons

    As an intern, looking for housing was the worst part because it took the focus off of learning and more on surviving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better listing for housing in the area and maybe a stipend were you pay for housing and give less or pay more and person finds their own housing.
