    Pros

    Cummis is a strong company with good benefits. Their vision and mission are top notch. Improve the communities we live and work in, while delivering world class products and services.

    Cons

    Many office hourly employees take these entry level roles to get their foot in the door, with the hopes of moving up to an exempt role. Some are over-qualified for these administrative roles. Also, there is a stigma that hourly office employees have at Cummins. This makes it difficult to move into an exempt role.

    Advice to Management

    Take value in hourly entry level employees. See what skill sets they possess. Consider the savings and value of promoting them because of the knowledge they have gained in their role.

    Pros

    -Abundance of opportunities for young engineers to contribute and grow.
    -Talent gets recognized and opportunities to take on more responsibilities given.
    -College hires can get a combination of technical work and management opportunities in as little as 3-4 years.

    Cons

    - Work life balance is not great.
    - Promotions and salary increases are experience based rather than merit based.
    - HR has come up with some policies recently to pull everyone to median salary for each salary grade irrespective of performance. People that get good performance reviews every year get punished during promotions with little to no raise citing that they make a lot of money already.

    Advice to Management

    Change compensation policies to reward merit in order to be able to retain good talent. Work plans need to be reflect the amount of work and available resources in order to not be in a fire fighting mode year round.
