    I worked at Cummins full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    One of the best companies to grow as a a Global Leader. Values based Organization and best environments to work for. Cummins cares about its employees like a family and this is very rare in this age. Growth is based on your own motivation to own your career. I was fortunate to be part of thisCompany for over 12 Years and am very grateful for all the Opportunities i got to grow and contribute.

    Cons

    Cummins has ( in my view) lost its focus on its core and its mission with so. Of the disruption we are seeing in its core products . Its not Clear to me me where the company is headed. We have also become ( again in my view) a company that values consensus and alignment more than innovation or dissent.

    Advice to Management

    You know what needs to happen. Its starts with geeting Rich to run the Company. Tom( needs to do something else ( he is a great strategist but weak on execution and innovation in my view ) . If we don't get next gen products, Cummins will end up with fate of IBM typewriters.

    Migration Status, actually living in U.S., El Paso, Tx., I was contracted like Mexican Worker, company does not have capacity to change my salary status to U.S. Salary, not in in the El Paso, Tx area

    Advice to Management

    Management has the honestly to said me, that my condition does not have possible in the area, but If I want they can relocate me in other facility in U.S.

    Pros

    There's great variability in the work that you will perform. Depending on the team that you end up working for, you might really love your job or not enjoy it that much.
    Cummins offers flexibility in exploring other roles and shadowing other people.
    The care that they provide to the community is excellent.

    Cons

    There are few groups that do most of their development in C which limits the growth for true software developers.
    Can be difficult to excel unless you switch roles as soon as you can.
    Compensation policies tend to underpay key talent.
