    Pros

    A great place to work if you are passionate about the company. I would recommend if you like a family oriented company.

    Cons

    You have to live in Columbus, IN for many of the jobs which is a drag. Also there is a lot of lateral movement

    Advice to Management

    Work to advance people quicker, there is more that could be done to make sure that stars are recognized. Compensation depends on unit.

    Flexible work culture

    If you like Manufacturing this is the place for you to work

    Cons

    I work in the IT division and they don't give too much focus to IT at Cummins.
    They are late adopters of IT Technologies and this can at times be frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more proactive in bringing in IT Technologies

    Pros

    Great place to work for interns. Play a large role in product development and testing. Good compensation with experience. Would work there again.

    Cons

    Interns often end up doing too much work. If you are not careful work life balance is skewed (towards work).

    Advice to Management

    Motivate all employees to balance work and life. Give interns more feedback. Ask for more deliverables to give feedback on.

    Really good work environment,
    flexible with personal time off,
    good product and good application of new technology
    very good learning experience
    lot of training opportunities
    clear goals
    fairly well defined work

    Cons

    health insurance is not too good
    salary relatively lower and promotions take forever and managment does not want to do any thing about it either
    does not promote further eductation, and hardly covers 20% of tuition
    most people are of the opinion that if you leave the company and come back you can get much better compensation

    Advice to Management

    This is a Fortune 500 company, we have a great product however Employee Retention is a key for long term success.

    Pros

    Great benefit package... some departments in the company are still ran like they should be

    Work life balance is impossible, we were expected to put work first at all times. Senior management was unresponsive and not open to any new ideas.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your every day employees.
