    I have been working at Cummins full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Best thing about working at Cummins is the respect and the understanding that the community has for each other. People are generally great to work with, diverse, and there are sometimes great opportunities with fair pay for all.

    Cons

    In a rough patch for Cummins, lots of people were laid off or restructured without any input, so getting stuck in a position you don't like is tough luck for you. It's also difficult living in remote locations like Indiana, so if you're looking for something fun, Indianapolis is a solid 45 minutes to an hour away. Can be hard to advance if you have a tough time breaking out of your role. But overall, still a decent company, if not a boring one at times.

    Advice to Management

    Make some more engineering opportunities that allow engineers out into the field to get hands on experience. Give actually meaningful work, and listen to your employees. Demanding that an employee swap out of their position after a while and getting nothing in return for it really drains the morale.

    The industry in general isn't doing too well. Layoffs are not encouraging to hard-working employees yet it happened. Hard working ones get to be recognized the same as those who are chatting and slacked-off.
