    Pros

    Proud to work for a company with such strong corporate values that they stand behind publicly.
      Work life balance is very good, if you want it to be. One can easily work long hours if you don't set limits. For the most part, management respects everyone's balance and does not expect overworking.
      Outstanding opportunities for career growth since job mobility between groups, businesses or functions (even technical to non-technical) are allowed and not discouraged.
      Work is very interesting and allows you to get involved with cutting edge technology.
      Cummins truly cares about their employees and makes sure to treat them well.

    Cons

    Experience can be different depending on what group or business you are in. Some of the newer businesses can be less structured and somewhat chaotic at times.
      Some groups are clearly understaffed but management responds very slowly leaving employees to cover the gap for long periods of time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to care for your employees and look out for their wellbeing as you are already doing.
      Try to standardize processes and expectations between businesses to ensure workload and the overall experience is consistent across the company.

    I worked at Cummins full-time

    Pros

    1. Amazing people. Diversity is highly valued. Very inclusive environment.

    2. Great work/life balance (although it depends on your role).

    3. Big company. Can find an opportunity to do what you're passionate about.

    Cons

    1. Room for growth can be very limited, even if you've been deemed a top performer. There are very tight rules that prevent you from being promoted too often or climbing up the ladder too fast.

    2. Company struggles to innovate and move quickly. Many layers of management and approval.

    3. Ranking system. As with any other, the process is driven by politics, bureaucracy, etc.

    Advice to Management

    1. Give high potential employees an opportunity to grow quickly. Sometimes it feels like HR rules are there to constrain you. This will cause you to lose all your top performers to companies with better salaries / benefits / opportunities.

    2. Truly embrace a culture of innovation and rapid product development.
