    Pros

    Nice work/life balance and location

    The glass ceiling effect is real especially if you have no degree. Degree doesnt mean your the better person.

    I worked at Cummins full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The best job I ever had. Once hired full time my pay would have been 22.35. per hour operating a Haas CNC 3 axis automated drill press. Co-workers were friendly and if you needed help they have a great team of maintenance personal and engineers to help or guide you in your daily work routine.

    Cons

    Expect to work long hours . Four shifts: A,B,C,D,.. 10 and 12 hour shifts. But it's not that hard just do it.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to hire someone like myself who completed a 180 probation period without missing any days or being tardy and no points in a 6 month probation period. It was a huge let down for me.

    Great working environment as well as a very receptive and welcoming corporate community

    Cons

    Most facilities/offices are in small town, but if you like a quiet life you'll love it

    Pros

    Company truly cares about Safety and you as a person. This is a perfect job for the safety professional because you are able to sharpen all three aspects in the safety field.

    Cons

    Improve opportunities between business units. We should be allowed to help improve opportunities inside other business units to continue our growth as a professional.

    Advice to Management

    Improve opportunities between business units

    Pros

    It is income. Decent people to work with.

    Cons

    Company controls cost through layoffs rather than elimination of waste or efficiency gains. A severe lack of standardization from plant to plant, business to business. The layoff cycle really hurts continuous improvement and moral. Management has to do 2 - 3 jobs. When this happens, only the biggest fires are attended to and the attention to their employees suffers. Upper management very slowly, if at all, back fills holes. Health insurance is poor for a company of this size.

    Advice to Management

    Save cost through efficiency and improvement and not the easy, brainless method of layoffs. Just like preventative maintenance (PMs) it takes money and time, but pays off in the long run.
