    Pros

    The culture at Cummins is great, benefits are competitive, and it is a very inclusive atmosphere. There are a lot of options for movement within the company.

    Cons

    As with any company, one bad manager can ruin the experience. The feedback system felt a little clunky at times, as well.

    I worked at Cummins as an intern

    Pros

    Very diverse ( which surprised me, because, Indiana), work with people from around the world, which was super cool.
    Amazing wor life balance.
    Work is challenging but not overbearing or stressful at all
    great support system to help you
    TONNES of other interns from all over the country ( many different nationalities too) so you get to make SO. MANY. FRIENDS. ( someone always makes an intern group text, which is great)
    Lots of company sponsored intern activities, and chances to travel around with other interns over the weekends

    Cons

    Some interns complained that their managers did not give them enough work This is an issue because you have to give an End of Internship Presentation. My advice is to reach out to other people within your team to see if you can help with any work. Everyone is extremely willing to help. ( and even if you find that one person that isn't, just ask someone else lol)
    Location isn't the most exciting, but its close to many fun places so you can travel quite a bit, or have fun with other interns.

    Housing can be expensive in Columbus, so start your search early. You're given a tool to help you by the company.

    Pros

    Great work environment, Diversity and work ethics makes it a great place to work.

    Need more calculation before hiring. Company has history of hiring and then fire people when they suffer setbacks.

    Advice to Management

    Have a reward program will definitely help. Employees have suffered the tension of laying off if the company is facing setbacks, need to work on it.
