    Great Company to work for

    Trades Associate (Current Employee) Columbus, IN

    ProsGreat company to work for. The pay is very fair for the job. Lots of options for advancement

    ConsKeep some employees that should have been fired years ago.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure more people are doing there job and not collecting a paycheck to sit and do nothing. Follow through with things your promise and listen more to the people that are actually doing the jobs you are affecting.

    Great Job. Great career path. Great benefits

    Senior Business Systems Analyst (Current Employee) Columbus, IN

    ProsDoing what I love and loving what I do.

    ConsThe size of the corporation, at least in HQ, seems to have some downfalls. One of the primary cons I've noticed is that we are not an IT company, so we outsource a lot of that work. It's cheaper, but in the IT world, that means compromise. The Cummins employees who ARE in IT are left to manage the vendors' work which is often quality that matches the price we paid for it.

    Great experience! Everyone is helpful and extremely nice.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe company culture is like no other and the company encourages you to move up and explore cross functional roles.

    ConsIf you have a big ego this isn't a place for you. The company does recognize employees but if you are the kind of person that brags about themselves and wants people to fear you because of your title you might not be satisfied.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you do Cummins is a great company and an amazing place to work at!

    Great place to work

    IT Business Analyst (Former Employee) Columbus, IN

    ProsVery good environment that nurtures progress and growth. Never felt evaluated but always felt that I was encouraged to give my best and only the end output was counted which helps to give your best with confidence. Nice people, always always willing to help you.

    ConsMight be slow for someone coming from a real hi-fi company. There is no structured growth and career path which might be good or bad.
