    Pros

    Flexibility, Community Involvement, Great pay, they promote learning/knowledge/growth

    Cons

    Some Managers stay too long. Growth can be difficult if you stay in one area too long. Some areas can be viewed as "click-ish"; tick the wrong person off...and they will be in for you forever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house in your mid-level mgmt. areas every now and then. You'll find that some mgrs. stifle their employees instead of help to build them. Because people tend to stay in one area for years...there is little to no growth for the driven few.

    Pros

    Cummins emphasizes diversity from the top leadership team. Unlike most of other companies which declared themselves as diverse, the only hire international students into engineering and/or IT function, every year they hire international students into different function (Finance, Accounting, Quality, Supply Chain, HR, Engineering.

    Cons

    Middle management team do not fully act the way top leadership wants them to - Micro-management, unfair hiring process spotted once on a while without top management's knowledge. Has really hard time firing incompetent individuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    more skip level meetings

    Pros

    Great leaders make this company shine and bright. Mid level managers and directors work very hard and creative. There are reasons why this company performs well beyond wall street analysts expectations.

    Cons

    To work in this company, you need to draw consensus even when there is a jerk insisted with not so smart things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please promote right people. Some people with several years of service are bottleneck for smart people.
