    Pros

    one of the best culture, no micromanagement, well established industry and has a name that speaks quality. Employees are treated very well and lot of diversity. A lottt of flexibility to move around in different jobs.

    Cons

    Salary is less, Locations are limited to small towns or cities. Depending on the business unit it will vary. Sometimes a lot of redundant work happens making you feel unaccomplished.

    Advice to Management

    Stream line processes through out Cummins. Nurture high performing employees instead of throwing them under the bus. Take slow with these high potential candidates and take time to team and grow them.

    Pros

    High on corporate values, cares about people and development.
    Mentorship opportunities with executives, xfunctional learning
    Pay is fair, perhaps slightly below avg

    Cons

    Used to be a great company, currently a good company and getting worse
    Business has been down several years now, key leaders have retired and low confidence in next level of leadership.
    Fewer opportunities to grow has led to higher than avg turnover

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that the company/culture has changed, not the same CMI from 5 years ago. Find ways to keep good people, even "High pots" are leaving.

    Pros

    Good pay, some good people

    Cons

    Layoffs are ridiculous, very poor management team, they lie so much about work life balance. They say they care but that is false. Cummins will work you to death and lay you off!!!

    Advice to Management

    Start telling the truth about work life balance. You don't care about your employees home life! You only want people to work super long hours and when the market gets a little unfavorable, you need to stop laying off the people who have sacrificed so much for you.
