    Pros

    Cummins is a great company with good leaders at many levels, a sensible vision of their place in the future, and a history of long-term investments in both people and places which is second to none.

    Cons

    Like any small town it can be cliquish and people sometimes isolate themselves into their personal worlds. Advancement is also somewhat problematic unless you are willing to make waves, which both gets you noticed and causes consternation which will eventually come back to do you harm.

    Advice to Management

    Continue along the path of long-term investments and Cummins will be here for another hundred years.
