Featured Review

Current Employee - Quality Engineer

I have been working at Cummins full-time

Pros

Great work life balance and good benefits. Occasionally need work overtime but that's not the normal expectation, it's up to the employee.

Cons

As a manufacturing company, compensation may not be as competitive. Sometimes, promotion relies heavily on the managers or teams.
