    I worked at Cummins Turbo Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Great work culture. Good personal growth. Growing company and a leader of the industry. A company which cares about their employees.

    Cons

    Still a small part of the parent company. As with any place, this company also has opportunities to improve if they want to continue to be a industry leader. They will need to continue to attract and retain good talent and preserve the work culture

    I worked at Cummins Turbo Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Travel to Europe and Asia and South America

    Cons

    Overseas managers are very heirarchial and do not communicate with their direct reports very well. Do your time in CTT and move to another business unit. Managers praise work/life balace, but then want to you to work 60+ hours while getting minimal pay for 40 hours per week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually put into practice what the Cummins Inc. CEO initiates and not a lot of lip service for you to look good. Hire managers that actually have management qualifications rather that who is the "it" or "favored" crowd or "you don't know what to do with them" types of managers

    Things are not as good as they seem when you pull back the layers.

    I have been working at Cummins Turbo Technologies full-time

    Pros

    There is a strong desire to live the company values, and do the right things. People are dedicated and work hard.

    Cons

    Some functions are still in the novice stage and are behind industry standards. Behind the times in IT, Supply Chain, and HR to name a few functions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to hold people accountable. People might actually like it.

    A good first job, but no growth potential for technical track.

    I worked at Cummins Turbo Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good atmosphere. I enjoyed working with everyone. Great place to pick up necessary skills for career engineers.

    Cons

    The company makes turbochargers. If you want diverse design experience, you won't get it there.

    I worked at Cummins Turbo Technologies

    Pros

    Cummins has a very good work culture. The management is very respectful. There is also great opportunity for travel. Cummins also offers great training and retention of employees.

    Cons

    The location of the headquarters in Columbus Indiana is not very desirable for a young person. This city is at least 45 minutes away from any large city.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership techniques were good. My manager maintained an open door policy. Within the engineering sector, this is usually the case.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Huddersfield, England (UK)

    I have been working at Cummins Turbo Technologies full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great for learning, increasing own experience and responsibilities. Possibility to change things through 6 Sigma, access to global contact network and some level of global mobility within the company.

    Cons

    Overall very poor management. Tendency to firefight with the excuse that the company grows very fast (used in interviews regurlarly)
    Work life balance heavily dependant on manager.
    Cummins vision might be great but no implemented in practice.
    The majority of the workforce have only worked at CTT since they completed their education; they don´t know anything else and live locally. In consequence there are a number of groups internally that drive behaviour - very very clique.
    Limited exposure to new things, poor IT tools to manage data and processes (heavily reliant on excel)
    Once a new process implemented works, it will be burdened with additional tasks until it stops being efficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, establish and honest dialogue.

    Current Employee - Placement Student Engineer in Huddersfield, England (UK)

    I have been working at Cummins Turbo Technologies as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Some of the nicest people I've worked with. Knowledgeable people experts in their respective fields. Most people have good work/life balance. Good graduate and intern social community with many night outs. Good well equipped large gym.

    Cons

    Uninspiring tedious jobs given to interns (I wasn't alone). Old fashioned in their ways. Location is hardly glamorous. Canteen while cheap is not exactly great. Salary paid to interns are below what other companies have offered their students (as I later found) and I know a lot of people are leaving the company now because of salary freeze.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please give interns interesting things to do.

    I worked at Cummins Turbo Technologies as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Very supportive, they like to ensure everyone reaches their full potential. In the three months I was there I attended at least 3 training courses. Everyone is very dedicated to the success of the company.

    Cons

    Unfortunately it wasn't in the area that I wished to pursue my career and Huddersfield was slightly too far away from my family than I would have liked if working full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.
