    Pros

    Cummins is america's greatest manufacturer of diesel engines. It has significant and profitable growth opportunities ahead and will be a great place to work.

    Cons

    Six-sigma is forced upon employees in cases where it is not the best way to solve a problem. Also locations are a bit at odd places.

    Pros

    Cummins has a very good work culture. The management is very respectful. There is also great opportunity for travel. Cummins also offers great training and retention of employees.

    Cons

    The location of the headquarters in Columbus Indiana is not very desirable for a young person. This city is at least 45 minutes away from any large city.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership techniques were good. My manager maintained an open door policy. Within the engineering sector, this is usually the case.

    Pros

    Cummins has so many different career opportunities. There are tons of different jobs, positions, and departments and employees are given the opportunity through internal bidding to move around to a different position if they see an opportunity that more closely matches their career goals or if they just need a change in their work. Cummins tries to keep things fresh, new and exciting so their employees are always challenged in their work.

    Cons

    Wages are a little low in some departments, but the opportunities for advancement make up for the low starting pay.

    I have been working at Cummins full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Cummins core values, enforced code/treatment policies, endless opportunities, flexibility.

    Cons

    This isn't so much a con but a good to know about the company. In order to get where you want to be, you have to be one that can sell yourself by networking and getting to know people. This can be a challenge for some because of the uncomfortableness of not only meeting people but having to talk about yourself to them. Also, you have to manage your own work/life balance. If you want to work 70 + hours a week, Cummins will not stop you. However, it is not expected. It will be up to you to determine the right balance for you.

    Work/life balance can be a bit challenging
