Pros

Great place to work. They are flexible with time off if needed. Knowledge sharing is abundant which is good in such a fast pace environment. If your performance is good you will be rewarded for it. Overall i would say that it is great place to work.

Cons

Just the typical "corporate" things that go with a large company.

    Pros

    Cummins has a very advanced goal tree and work plan system. They work hard to align these with the corporate strategy. These offer what I would feel is a great backbone to the development of successful project plans, which in turn 1) help the company direction, 2) offer cohesive continuous improvement, and 3) provide a solid road map for individual successes.

    Cons

    A key shortcoming of working at Cummins is having to live with the hardline, insensitive approach the top management has taken with regard to workforce reduction. Cummins just completed two back to back record setting quarters, and yet the position is now that they must cut ten percent of the professional workforce in order t meet their goals. That makes it very difficult to feel comfortable in a workplace setting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review the review ranking system.

    Pros

    Moderate work load. Decent compensation. Profit sharing

    Cons

    Very bad performance review system. Cummins uses a bottom 10% separation policy. Exempt Employees get ranked based on the degree of his/her manager's political horsepower and/or relations with the manager. This can be very discouraging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review your middle management. Ratings and rankings are more political than they should be.
