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

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.

    Current Employee - Project Manager in Memphis, TN

    I have been working at Cummins full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good life-work balance
    Potential to work anywhere in the world
    Very open to discuss career with upper management

    Cons

    Mid-low salaries. Mid-low bonus. HR does not properly communicate salary levels and salary rules are not always followed when employees change jobs inside of the company.
    System to prevent unethical behavior and to prevent discrimination does not work well. Some employees simply do not use the confidential hotline and others do not sincerely respond investigations because most people are afraid to be punished by infractor once nothing happens with investigation.
