    I worked at Cummins as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very organized and team working is a key factor there. Even though you might be working for a specific area/department, the all work together at the same time so you will have to face different challenges all the time.

    Cons

    The location (Huddersfield) was a bit far from my place of residence. Not many cons to say.

    Pros

    Very good working environment. Above average compensation. Relaxed working atmosphere. Lots of branding materials. Development of employees through training and courses

    Cons

    They retrench people once market softens. They carry too many employees. Company is top heavy. Every top person has director as title which is nauseating.

    Advice to Management

    Employ what is needed and develop them. Be more dynamic to cyclical market softening. Disabuse the mind of top management on titles. What matters more is what an individual is able to deliver not job title.

    Pros

    Good support and great staff. I've learned and continue to learn a lot. Pace of work is steady and flexible working hours is appreciated across the site. Cummins have the best community presence and cultural integration of any company I have seen or worked for - a major company strength.

    Cons

    In the technical side of the business, career progression isn't overly visible. A common belief is to progress you are better pursuing more commercial roles - something I feel our particular BU has suffered. This sentiment has been expressed and acknowledged by local Senior Management, will be interesting to see if any developments are made. In times of hardship, Cummins have been known to swiftly wield the axe. I also consider the company's R&D structure to be under funded and not world leading as once the case.

    Advice to Management

    After 5 years of being Senior Engineer and enjoying my role, I can't help but regrettably feel I'd need to look outside Cummins to match my career ambitions.

    Pros

    Life work balance. Good colleagues . Free coffee to keep you awake. Good breadth of experience.Generally no one is on your neck. You are expected to take control of your work.

    Cons

    Lay off during market softening . Loose management structure. Different teams doing the same thing. A lot of effort duplication. Company is too heavy. The few under dogs do the bulk of the work while the numerous top guys hop from meeting to another.

    Advice to Management

    None
