    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Diversity, Work Environment, Career opportunities

    Cons

    The HQ Location is not the best

    Advice to Management

    As Location is not the best ..good talent will try to move to a mediocre company with better location ..Improving a location is not something the management can do however, they need to try other things in terms of benefits to retain the talent.

    Pros

    Huge potential for improvement, company has a great reputation amongst the general public. Great corporate values as well as much care and effort on the person not the "employee". Has a profit share compensation even in Mx, best food at the plants of all the companies I've been at. All around a great company to work at with multicultural involvement day to day.

    Cons

    Disconnection between plants and development create an akward ambience where nobody seems to comprehend beyond their own responsibility.

    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 Management

    more skip level meetings

    Pros

    Good strong company culture. Quite informal. Does appreciate work life balance and particularly strong in supporting minorities of all types. Easy to talk to people and many nice people work here.

    Cons

    Can be a bit bureaucratic at times with too many meetings. The pay is good but not upper quartile. Some elements of US culture permeate outside the US

    Advice to Management

    Make sure we keep focussed on delivering excellent products and customer service and not let the bureaucracy run away with itself.
