    I worked at Cummins Turbo Technologies (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Being a part of Cummins Inc one has the opportunity to interact with and even go work for all parts of the global organization, geographically, culturally and technically. (US, India, China, UK, Brazil; Engines, Power Generation, Distribution, Filters, Aftertreatment, Fuel Systems, Distributors) Despite being a part of Cummins Inc, it can feel like a medium sized company due to the local market focus of each site. Even in Huddersfield which supports engineering globally the organization isn't so big that a keen individual can't make an impact. Cummins globally is a very ethical and value driven company, with a big focus on giving back to the communities in which they operate. Employees are encouraged to get involved and it makes one appreciate the company for more than the job. Technologically Cummins is one of the leaders in diesel engine technology with a long tradition of engineering excellence, the technical competence, without being arrogant, is strong. Their branching out into waste heat recovery is going to be quite exciting.

    Cons

    As one might expect in a modern corporate environment the focus on process is high, and it can feel like innovation and responsiveness is stifled by needing to check the box. This is a double edged sword, it helps less competent employees deliverer results to a minimum level of quality, but then discourages keen employees from engaging their critical thinking fully, and down right holds back (or adds a layer of managing admin) top talent. It's still a corporation of the industrial age, so when comparing to more modern companies, for example out of the tech world, the HR practices can seem down right outdated.

    Advice to Management

    Re-engineer Six Sigma, don't let the process get in the way of innovation/agility,

    Pros

    Excellent opportunity for advancement. Movement from entry level to lower management positions is quite possible. Lots of training opportunities. Six Sigma training available.

    Cons

    I had problems with getting support in my position. I was employed during and after the economic down turn which they didn't handle well. The business fell then came back at a rate that they couldn't handle.

    Advice to Management

    Help your employees with their struggles.

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

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