    Overall better than most in My opinion

    Pros

    I have felt the leadership in general genuinely cares about workers. I have expressed some dissent for some things and have not been retaliated against. Most people I have worked with have been very friendly and helpful. Leadership generally does what they say they will do. I do think it's better than average corporation

    Cons

    It is a multi national corporation and suffers the same bureaucratic garbage that all entrenched companies do. Like if payroll makes a mistake with your pay they will claw back every cent in the most inconvenient way possible. Executives during pandemic pay cuts said they would take a 50% pay cuts just not to their bonus or calculated base salary of the bonus which is most of their pay so in effect for the year they took 3% paycut to most everyone elses 5% yearly accumulated. Low man on the totem pole always gets the shaft so layoffs and pay cuts come first to the lowest workers so pretty average corporate disregard in that respect. While I do believe they are generally better than many corporations that is a very low bar and you will be sacrificed over profits in most instances maybe just fewer than most companies.

    A company that cares about you

    Pros

    -They care a lot about all of their employees, not just office guys, but operators as well. -Cummins is great for international students as they have a lot of experience dealing with H1B visas, green cards, and OPT. They have a buffet of lawyers prepared to help their international employees -They are flexible with work hours(depending on the job it may vary)for example if you are quality and you need to be on line from 8-3, because of production times. Then you can choose if you want to be from 5 to 3, or from 8 to 5, depending on your preferenace. It happened to me, that I worked some days from 5am to 4pm mon-thur, and friday my manager allowed me to take Friday off, because the projects were going great and I was exceeding the expectations. This didn't happened every week, but in the weeks that I had to be on the 3 shifts because of the nature of the project.

    Cons

    Overall Cummins shows their warm and welcoming culture and their people values all over the world. However, your work experience(days off, workload, mentoring, and work schedule) depends a lot in your Manger. This is not with a negative connotation, my two managers that I have had are great. But this can change from manager to manager and I have heard probably 1 out of 20 people that their manager was not that great.

    Pros

    Great company culture valuing caring for co-workers and team work. Always felt supported by Management and able to choose desired path. Able to see clear path for how to be promoted. Enjoy the work and have a lot of resources available to learn.

    Cons

    - Timing on Projects is usually unrealistic without buffer and little to know input from team doing work. - Work Life Balance used to be better changed in last few years but still is not too bad. - Not given enough time for training have a lot of great training resources but expected to take them on your own time. - Major Layoffs every 4 years

    Very accommodating. Good work-life balance.
