    I have been working at Cummins full-time

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits for union workers. Tuition reimbursement allows any employee to earn their degree and move to an exempt position within the company. Paid maternity and paternity leave.

    Cons

    Positions go unfilled during downturns and even sometimes during good times. This leads to exempt people taking on extra responsibilities for no increase in pay. This does often lead to promotion opportunities though.

    Advice to Management

    I do not wish to put anything in this section but there is a twenty word minimum. I just want to access the whole site.

    I worked at Cummins full-time (More than 5 years)

    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 full-time

    Pros

    Really enjoyed working for the company I work for the company for 17 and a half years. I worked on the line as a technician for 10 years and I work in a fuel pump lab for 7 years the company had a layoff in 2009 and I was wondering if Lloyd's that they laid off.

    Cons

    We worked a lot of overtime I felt that the company needed to listen to the employees more about what would make the work conditions safer and make things better for the employee

    Advice to Management

    Try to listen to the employees more because working with management and employee can make a better company and a very good work environment
