Growth company, without systems, resources, leadership infrastructure to support growth

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Fridley, MN

ProsTremendous growth opportunities
Dynamic, fast paced
Good products, strong market positions (particularly in developing markets)
Very strong and well respected senior leadership (at Cummins Corporate and President level)
Performance-based review process (not always well implemented)
Thin management ranks gives lots of opportunity to take more responsibility..if you have time

ConsLeadership below President level is poor (not strategic, highly political, too busy to lead)
Do not have sufficient resources to support aspirations. We say we want to grow fast, but the same obstacles budgets, HR policies impede that
Physical facilities are sub-standard (being fixed currently)
Unpleasant work environment, many people are unhappy
Uneven share of value (employees vs. management)

Advice to Senior ManagementReward your employees more when performance is strong (why cap variable pay?)
Hire people faster, take the shackles of your hiring managers
Spend some money
