    Pros

    Great company culture - open and welcoming, plenty of opportunities to learn and develop, they preach and act upon their values and behave as a good corporate citizen.

    Cons

    Columbus is a small town. The closest cities are Bloomington and Indianapolis, but they're each more than 30 minutes away, and only small towns in between. The choice between commuting and living in a small town is there for those of us who'd rather live in more populated areas. Due to recent trouble on the sales/profit front, my unit - amongst others - was understaffed. As the downturn is weathered more, and Cummins starts to turn the corner for the better again, I'm sure the work-life balance will improve for employees. But, right now, I can see how difficult it has been for some folks working more hours than usual, and sometimes on weekends. But, my unit was also more understaffed than others, so I'm likely a more extreme case.

    Advice to Management

    Keep placing great importance in being a good corporate citizen. The effect of the company on the community is greater than making a short-term profit, and I feel as though Cummins is likely to continue to stay true to that.

    I have been working at Cummins as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This company really stands by its slogan. The ethics of the workforce is very strong, and the hours and workload is very manageable. There are plenty of opportunities to learn new things and meet new people. Lots of mobility, both laterally and vertically.

    Cons

    As an HR Intern, I have not been very challenged. I have not received good support for the project that is supposed to take up 50% of my time.

  3. "HR Internship"

    I worked at Cummins as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They give projects that have meaning and value. They allow you to own those projects and to take control of how they will end up, while still being there to help you if you need it. People are very willing to meet with you for your projects. You are looked at as another Cummins employee. Being an intern doesn't have a bad connotation to it. People are happy that you're there and to see that you are doing the work that you are doing.

    Cons

    Columbus, IN is a small town. There isn't much to do in the town itself. However, it's surrounded by fun locations to visit (Indy, Louisville, Bloomington).

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that project work is consistent among all interns in the function. I know some HR interns who had 1-2 projects and others who had 5-6.

    Absorb interns into the organization
