    I worked at Cummins full-time

    Pros

    I honestly don't have any

    Cons

    *Frequent turnover, very low morale, forced ranking creates intense animosity and fear amongst employees
    *You get good reviews including bonuses and salary increases but get canned the very next month.
    *Don't bother taking a job here unless you want to lose sleep every night about whether or not you'll have a job (especially if you make roughly six figures)
    *Very cliquish and unless you do it "the Cummins Way," you are not welcome
    *Competition among colleagues because of the forced ranking prohibits success and progression
    *Don't expect to take or use any vacation time and plan to work at least 60+ hours per week

    Pros

    Interesting line of work. Good work culture. Potential for advancement.

    Cons

    A lot of turnover in the last couple years I was there. Aggressive product introduction cycle, with more attention given to the poorly managed projects at the detriment of the well managed ones.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on establishing a well defined scope early and support projects from kick off.

    I worked at Cummins full-time

    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.
