    Pros

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

    Cons

    Keep some employees that should have been fired years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make 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.

    I have been working at Cummins full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Doing what I love and loving what I do.

    Cons

    The 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.

    I worked at Cummins as an intern

    Pros

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

    Cons

    If 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Very 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.

    Cons

    Might 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.
