I have been working at Cummins Power Generation (more than 3 years)

Pros

Global company with product sold around the world. Nice people to work with. Pension, bonus potential, freedom to work remotely when required.

Cons

Engineering office environment dismal. Assembly space is strained. Understaffed operations, pressure to build product at pace trumps quality at times. Difficulit to find those with authority to make decisions. Too much focus on quantity of 6 sigma products vs. quality of project. Requirement that all engineers become certified.

    I have been working at Cummins Power Generation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Smart, talented, and interesting people
    International Experience

    Cons

    Lack of execution timed consistantly with market changes. If employees leave, replacements are from emerging markets only (India or China) without needed experience. Excessive politics without results. Unequal pay - dependant on your political clout or ?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solid values, but unactuated or unequally applied in the organization. Excessive politics are hindering execution of strategies or programs as per intent. Discussion of strategies are necessary to flush the full strategy out, however ability to execute is disappointing. Current programs are understaffed. Staff is excessively over worked.
