    Pros

    Decent pay
    Initially good benefits but, as with many companies, coverage declined and employee expenses increased
    Ability to move within the firm
    Some very solid people to work with

    Cons

    Allow / encourage employees to move to different positions before they learn the position they are in.
    Management unwilling to accept honest, accurate feedback.
    Hard work and results are not valued as much as being a 'yes' person.
    Too focused on social issues and not on the company's products, services and customers.

    Advice to Management

    Require employees to stay in position a minimum of 2-3 years. This will increase productivity and effectiveness and reduce the expense associated with training new people every 18 months. Listen to your employees and act on accurate, specific feedback and suggestions.

    Pros

    Management cares about employees. Lots of opportunities to move around within the company to expand the career. work-life balance is overall good though it really depends on specific group.

    Cons

    bureaucracy and low-efficiency in some areas. Pay is not the most competitive either.

    Pros

    Great stepping stone opportunity for younger engineers to learn.

    Cons

    Upper management out of touch with the technical side. Once had a senior leader state.. "If you can't explain it to me in terms I understand then you don't know what you are talking about." Another VP talked down to Engineers as if we did not understand the basic econ concept of supply & demand (really). Heard another state "Engineers are a dime a dozen. " Forced ranking is used to cull the herd of higher earners. Personally had a major promotion for performance only to ranked a 3 four months later, the problem, I turned 50. Resigned and never looked back best move I ever made.

    Advice to Management

    Giving advice to Cummins management is simply a waste of breath.

    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

    Cummins is a good place for work. people here are all friendly and willing to share experience.

    Cons

    The cafe here is not good. since the office is in the plant, the noise of assembly line will disturb working in the office sometimes

    Pros

    good work-life balance, growing business, interesting projects

    Cons

    low salaries, raises were basically eliminated for lateral and almost eliminated vertical promotions. many high performers are getting no raises under the claim that they make too much money. not much people development and no leadership development

    Advice to Management

    one must care to make any use of an advice, so no advice here
