I have been working at Cummins full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Ability to explore other career opportunities within the company mostly if you know senior folks that like you

Cons

-Cummins really don't have any career culture for young engineers, your growth depends on who you know not how hard you perform.
-The older white males still have a small town mentality(if you're a colored person, you definitely know what i mean)
-Minorities and foreign employees get kick out first despite performance... Just so you know, these happens every 2yrs.
-Columbus is still 10yrs behind civilization despite the diverse population
-Over all, you should never work for cummins for more than two-five yrs unless you're WHITE with a small town mentality.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Let those old retirees go, give young engineers a chance. Stop hiring minorities in numbers just so you can let them go at every wimp. Finally your rating and ranking system sucks.

    I have been working at Cummins as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    People are generally very helpful and good to work with.You can learn a lot if you are lucky to get into the right group who believe in proper training.Otherwise, you will constantly find you don't have the tools/knowledge (which you will get from training) to finish your tasks.

    Cons

    Company seem to lack direction when it comes to how many people need to be hired/fired.The hire you and fire you three months after.Then another four months later they go in search of potential candidates.---In summary, No job security.
    So much emphasis on revenue it's ridiculous.
    The usual company politics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get handle on hiring/firing policies.Pay more attention to properly training your new hires

    I worked at Cummins full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Used to be a great place to work. Everything changed and the focus moved to reports,graphs and charts,not the customer

    Cons

    Did not listen to long employed people, just changed how they took care of customers. Did not understand.the difference in industrial, power generation, and truck shop customers. There is a huge difference between them.
