    I have been working at Cummins full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    While each division (Business Unit) operates pretty independently and slightly differently, overall the company is a great large company to work for. They value their employees and actively promote from within. Company does very large amount of community outreach and charitable giving. Strong sense of social values including vocal opposition to anti-gay legislation proposed in HQ state.

    Cons

    Just average salary and benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All of the upper mgmt people I have heard speak at internal meetings are really impressive. I believe the company is in good hands.

    Amazing work culture, people are given space to do things their way. Flexibility in work hours, superiors are accommodating and supportive.

    Being a big organization, as an intern i didn't find many opportunities to explore various functions within the organization. Also, I was assigned on a single project which constrained my domain.

    Accommodation was tough to find. Please provide accommodation to interns.
