I have been working at Cummins full-time for less than a year

Pros

Big company. Communication between employees are not that good. Culture is good. Overall a good company with good pay and benefits. I will recommend it to a friend.

Cons

Dont know yet. They should not layoff employees after hit by any random recession. They should expedite the hiring process a little bit faster.

    I worked at Cummins full-time

    Pros

    With all due respect, I cannot think of any

    Cons

    Use of H1B Visas suppressed wages and limited opportunities significantly (perhaps almost totally)
    Six sigma forced to be used in ways it did not apply or were beneficial to the company
    Treatment of employees was abysmal
    Facilities were unclean and dismal, which should change with the new building
    The "Jack Welsh" rating and performance system used to grade employees and fire employees was based on politics, and was a joke because the management team was forced to identify 10% of the workforce each year that had performance problems regardless of how the employees were actually performing. Worse yet, the program was abusive. It was called "take your turn in the barrel" and had nothing to do with performance. At some point, each employee was given a rating of "3" and was forced to go through a meaningless performance improvement system. Although the reason for getting a "3" was meaningless and baseless, the consequences were dire and many times included losing your job - all because your manager was not as good at defending you in the yearly management review meeting as someone else's as they were trying to come up with the "mandatory" ten percent of employees who were "poor" performers.

    I have been working at Cummins as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Treat you really well. Give you a seperate workspaceand laptop for the summer.
    Very helpful co-workers help you find your feet.

    Cons

    Given quite a long leash on project, no regular follow ups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More of a daily check up by manager with the interns to help them stay on track.
