    Bad managers and backward thinking still happens.

    Continue to have a strong vision and communicate it to all levels of the company.

    Pros

    Innovative culture, good compensation package, excellent work-life, very well positioned in the market

    Cons

    The only Con I can think of is the location in Indiana. However, cost of living is very low and there are lots of great cities in a 1Hour radios.

    Pros

    Pay is competitive.
    Good work life balance.
    Provides flexibility to move around between functions.

    Cons

    Growth is slow.
    High performers also get stuck in the bureaucratic rut.
    Pay could be better as not comparable to other OEMs

    Pros

    Great people, caring company culture, lots of international opportunities. Almost everyone in Columbus, Indiana (location of their world headquarters) works there or has a family member who does. Everyone in the area really respects Cummins because they've done so much for the community.

    Cons

    Mostly, I just don't want to work with engines. I'm in marketing and this just wasn't the most interesting product to market (for me, at least). As a young person local to the area, I also didn't want to have any chance of working in Columbus in the future, although they do have a lot of opportunities in other places, so that was less of a factor.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly, if I were Cummins, I would move headquarters someplace other than Columbus. I just don't understand how they can possibly attract the level of talent they need to a small town in the middle of nowhere in Indiana. However, as a local, I know that the local economy would basically collapse without Cummins. Even though I don't wish to return to my hometown, I still want it to be a good place for other people, so I hope they do decide to stay.

    Pros

    Sense of industry camaraderie with like professionals

    Cons

    The degree of social engineering and political gerrymandering is sickening.The company caters to the LGBT community at the expense of all others. Christian & Muslim employees are thus discriminated against in favor of LGBT social, political, and internal company positions. The company positions itself as all inclusive - but a closer review tells a different story. The company urges it people to politically advocate for gay rights while lecturing Christians and Muslims about being on the wrong side.

    Advice to Management

    Resign. Promptly.

    Pros

    Comapny is generally great with employee development, work life balance, and culture. Cummins is a leader in the disel market, that it's easy to take pride in your work.

    Cons

    Benefits are lacking behind competing companies. The diversity aspect is a little much too. The promotion rates derived from reverse-discrimination are hurting more employees than helping.

    Advice to Management

    Forget race and gender when it comes to promotions. Promote person with best work ethic, leadership, and skills
