    I have been working at Cummins full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Cummins is a great company to work for. People are nice and it is a diverse workplace. The culture is very welcoming.

    Cons

    The company has been struggling for some type due to the conditions in the market place. However I believe Cummins needs to shape us its strategy for the next 3-5 years in order to reinstate confidence.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate your vision to the employees. A lot of them don't understand where the company is heading and would like some reassurance that Management is working on something.
