    Former Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Columbus, IN
    Former Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Columbus, IN

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

    Pros

    Great Diversity.
    Overall High growth before and after 2008-2009 downturn
    Some of the most amazing people around the world you can meet

    Cons

    Sometimes too much politics. You can only get success if you have 'Mentor' (mostly people high up). Different groups work differently and they are more involved in their own group's profit than looking at CMI benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not Hire and fire bunch at a time.
    Have same rules for Employee as well as their Manager. Managers are equally responsible for employee's failures.

    Great performance compared to competitors but very old-school with slow growth

    Current Employee - Materials Manager in Columbus, IN
    Current Employee - Materials Manager in Columbus, IN

    I have been working at Cummins full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Industry leader, Global opportunities, Easy to move to different functions (SCM to Finance to HR, etc), Visa sponsorship and Cummins has a great senior leadership team.

    Cons

    Slow growth, Performance management system is very poor (with forced ranking), Lower to Mid level management is bad.

    Overall, Cummins did not seem like a company that encouraged innovation and rewarded exceptional performance. It seemed like at least at lower and mid management levels experience and # of years at company were all that mattered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cummins needs to do away with the forced ranking process and provide faster growth opportunities for high performing individuals. It seems like Cummins is the best place to work if you are an average performer but probably a huge disappointment if you are really a high performer.
