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

    Pros

    I seriously think this was a great opportunity. Cummins cares a lot about their interns, you will have the opportunity to meet new people through networking events and they also do a lot of training such as Six Sigma, A3 and engine familiarization. I learned so much during this summer internship I think it's the best experience I have ever had. This company is so diverse, they respect and take into consideration all kinds of inputs! I even got to meet the CEO

    Cons

    Really nothing, I have a really great experience
