      Pros

      - Diversity: the company had employees from all over the world. It was like working for the United Nations. I learned a lot just by interacting and making friends with people from different countries working for the company. - World class talents: while at Cummins, I met some engineering colleagues who were truly at the top of their fields. I was in awe of the depth of their expertise and knowledge. So much to learn from.

      Cons

      - So big: the company was so big in size that it was hard to find my place and significance among thousands of others. - The hierarchy: the hierarchy of a corporate environment could feel stiffening and its routine 8-5 workdays monotonous.

      Pros

      The role is easy to learn once you learn it. Transitioned to Remote position currently. No sales calls. No in person customers.

      Cons

      System always crashing. Leading to backlogs with customers if you like to keep activate. Policy and producer is always changing.

      My overview on Cummins

      Pros

      - Good company to work for if you're looking at good work-life balance - If you're an international student, Cummins might be a gold mine for you as they sponsor work visas and permanent residency for you.

      Cons

      - Columbus, IN is located in the middle of nowhere and there is nothing much to do if you are a recent college graduate. - Total compensation (TC) is not that great when compared to other OEMs (John Deere, Caterpillar, GM, Ford, FCA etc.). - Less opportunity of changing roles. If you don't like your new role/team you are stuck for a min of 2 years. Depending upon managers, they may not want you to change roles before 3 years. - Work tends be more lethargic due to the slow work-life culture in Cummins. - Every 3 years Cummins go through a lay off cycle. Make sure to be ready for that.

      Pros

      Able to move around in the company to create a path for your career however you want

      Cons

      Seems as though HR has to many stipulations on who is allowed to be promoted of not. If they do not fee the ratio is correct they will not allow someone to be promoted within their role. So most employees seeking promotion or advancement have to leave to a new roll, Buisness unit to change paths all together

      Pros

      Excellent culture. Very committed to diversity and inclusion. Senior leaders are genuine and approachable.

      Cons

      Things can take a long time to get done. Standards of excellence vary by manager. Must be self motivated and some people can ‘skate by’ with limited accountability.
