    Pros

    Company takes care of its employees. The company is global so it means becoming well-versed with multiple cultures and some travel included. The challenges are difficult, yet, they give you the leeway to accomplish the task without being micro-managed.

    Cons

    Small perks could be a bit more enticing. Advancement seems to be slow even if you are talented. Big company politics exist (although, they seem to be getting better).

    Advice to Management

    Keep working hard to move in the right direction, as you are now.

    I have been working at Cummins full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is a certain energy at Cummins that I think is unique and it really can't be explained. Every day, I am excited to go to work, not only because I enjoy the challenging work and the endless learning opportunities, but I am equally as excited about the people I get to work with side-by-side. On the flip side, every day when I am driving home, I reflect on my day, which usually includes how impressed I am with the leadership and the talented people I get work with. Cummins has a great environment that is all-inclusive. Benefits are generous. Work/life balance is heavily promoted.

    Cons

    There are no cons working at Cummins!
