    Current Employee - Senior Manufacturing Engineer in Fridley, MN

    I have been working at Cummins Power Generation

    Pros

    Some management folk are really good and know what they are doing. But that is only 20% is my feeling

    Cons

    Very presentation oriented Company than get the work done and we trust you. Documentation is good but their has to be a efficient and productive way of doing it. I feel Company can be 30% more efficient if they do that. Some folks have really done good presentations and succeeded somehow, but in reality they are lack on Knowledge and courage to take a stand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People Should be promoted and considered to be visible based on projects they have completed, in other word a person should be known by his/her projects or work, not by any other means. A system needs to be developed to make sure projects and people behind those projects are visible.
    1-2-3 anual rating is very manipulating and is unfair to people who take pride in there work.

    A thumb rule is an XYZ person works 20% time and promotes/markets his work for 80% or rest of the time, and a person ABC works for 90% of the time and promotes.markets his work for 10% of the time. If I am running a company I would want more of ABC's than XYZ's because they earn 60% more money for the Company.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Fridley, MN
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fridley, MN

    I have been working at Cummins Power Generation

    Pros

    bonus structure
    work / life balance

    Cons

    health care benefits are horrible
    executive management is too insulated from day to day issues/roadblocks
    horrible workplace environment
    outdated systems
    too reliant on 6Sigma, ignore obvious improvements

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't tie all improvements to 6S, realize there are opportunities to improve that don't take 6 months and tons of powerpoint charts to justify

    No opinion of CEO
