I worked at Cummins full-time

Pros

Truly great people with good values can be found in many parts of the world
Opportunity for more work is there
Opportunity to live abroad and experience new culture is there

Cons

Compensation structure is laughable for engineers. The band structure and equity adjustments pretty much gaurantee that lifelong high performers dont make much more money than lifelong "2" performers
Diversity taken too far - preferential treatment to hiring, promotion, layoffs, and pay given to women first, minorities second, and everyone else third. The CEO said publicly, "we will have 50% women on the leadership team by xxx date" - how is he sure that a woman is qualified for 50% of the jobs? Answer: He isn't - but it will be forced.
People are "lifers" - and lifers can create complacency and be a blocker for promotion of good, young talent.
Locations suck. They really suck for young people.
More work/responsibilitiy not aligned to pay. You are paid for 2 roles in your rear-view mirror.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't forget the white male engineers - they are the lifeblood of the company.
Move the COB & COM to Indianapolis - instant access to better talent for admin skill families
Tear up "home to host" and start over.

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

    Pros

    Can't see any pros in catering to special interest for political expedience

    Cons

    Executives playing a game of political correctness catering to a fringe minority. A majority of employees feel insulted by the company's social position which they have enveloped in the term "diversity". The diverse global employee base does not agree with internal GLBT programs which goes against the grain of the majority beliefs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having moral character is not discriminatory.

    Former Employee - Finance in Columbus, IN
    Former Employee - Finance in Columbus, IN

    I worked at Cummins full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Salary
    Vacations & Holidays
    Insurance
    Career Opportunties
    Community Involvement opportunties

    Cons

    Expect to self train for your position. Difficult to find individuals to support your development. Opportunites for career advancements not based on skill or abilitiy, you need a guardian in your corner. Out-dated computer systems. Very cyclical environment...knee jerk reaction to ecomonic conditions - hires a 1000 employess in first 6 months of the year then turns around and randomly fires that many by the end of the year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in new technology - computer & software systems. Seek better alternatives to your staffing requirements, less hiring and firing...need more coaching and development for current employees

    No opinion of CEO
