Pros

Great work culture.
Compensation is competitive considering the work location.
Great work place mobility. Employees has opportunity to move from one role to another after two years of completing in one role.

Cons

The head office in Columbus, IN is a very small place and not ideal to attract good talents.
Slow paced. Execution gets bogged down in too many procedurial steps.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Top down approach to managment. It is unlikely ideas at the bottom of the value chain will get heard in setting strategy decisions. Levels of hierarchy needs to be reduces.

    Pros

    Great benefit package... some departments in the company are still ran like they should be

    Cons

    Work life balance is impossible, we were expected to put work first at all times. Senior management was unresponsive and not open to any new ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your every day employees.

    Pros

    - Strength of senior leadership
    - Commitment to corporate responsibility
    - Humane work environment
    - Management willing to listen to employees
    -Good benefits
    - Good bonus (when economy is strong)
    - Interesting work

    Cons

    - Advancement possiblities limited for those in "support" organizations
    - Too dependent on Six Sigma as a leadership development tool
    - Base pay for professionals lower than at similar companies
    - Relatively few great places to live and work at Cummins
    - Staffing tight in some areas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would like to see leadership do a better job of recognzing talent and potential across the entire range of the company. Too often, talented people get pigeon-holed based on their current duties and we're not creative enough to find ways to translate skills of people with non-traditional backgrounds or core business roles (i.e. - non-technical roles) into leadership positions.
