    Pros

    Cummins inc is a great company to work for. Care about employees and their health. Team orientated and an overall great atmosphere.

    Cons

    You must part take in team goals. If you fail the team fails, you do well the team succeeds. Some processes are outdated and need to be upgraded and more efficient.

    I have been working at Cummins full-time

    Pros

    Many opportunities to use transferable skill sets. Has a culture of moving into new roles every 2-3 years. Provides stretch role opportunities to support rapid skill growth and development.

    Cons

    Managers are not well trained or developed. They are promoted without good experience in managing others. Allow toxic managers to stay in leadership roles.

    Pros

    Great Work environment and career growth. Great product manufacturing. Senior management has an open door policy.

    Cons

    Head quarters are in Columbus Indiana which is not a great place to live unless your only goal is raising children. Could use more modern software technology.

    Pros

    My experience with Cummins has been very positive, in that I've had the opportunity to build my career and grow from within the company. I'm able to work collaboratively and cross-functionally to gain a deeper knowledge of the product and become immersed within the culture. All of my managers have asked me from day one, what my goals were for myself and have been supportive of my career development plan. Cummins encourages employees to take on roles, learn, grow, work hard, share the knowledge and continuing along to build your career by moving on to other roles within the company. Encouraged growth is very important to me! They also promote community involvement and volunteering within the community (very cool!). Their attention to environmental causes, not only locally but globally is amazing! My work life balance is very good. All of my managers have been understanding and work with me as a working mother and someone who has health problems from time to time. This is such a relief! Cummins supports me as an employee and individual.

    Cons

    No matter what company you work for, there are always going to be challenges, both personally & professionally. The grass is not always greener on the other side! With that said, I've found my experience within Cummins has taught me it's important to voice concerns with coworkers/management/leadership constructively and in a manner that sparks change from a positive place. Sell yourself, be accountable and work hard - that's how you'll stand out and continue to grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Coaching is very important. Regular One-on-Ones are key to understanding your employees, identifying weaknesses and strengths, improving daily work/projects and opening the line of communication for effective and efficient work plans. Nothing should be a surprise to an employee if leadership is communicating effectively with their employees, groups, departments.

    I have been working at Cummins full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay through a turbulent time in the economy and stable work, great advancement opportunities if you are a non black minority. Very LGBT friendly and happy to advance females.

    Cons

    Despite having high ratings and outperforming my coworkers, I can not progress in my career here. I have been held in a lower position because I am too essential to the position, but haven't had any real increases in pay (if you value me show me with pay). Cummins touts itself as being a great employer, but when you look around and do the comparatives you will soon see they aren't even offering competitive wages anymore. More and more benefits are being taken away to inflate the bottom line and keep investors happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that in your initiatives to be an EOE that you are not reverse discriminating against the white and black men in this company.
