    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.
