    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Cummins full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Life in small town with less traffic and enough activities for families considering the size of the town. Flexible working hours, work-life balance

    Cons

    Noisy work environment, not good in treating employees, works at lethargic pace. Overrated in terms of diversity, inclusion & culture

    Advice to Management

    Change the dynamics of doing work. Focus on retaining current employees rather than ever increasing size of the team. Too many managers and stakeholders with often changing roles

    depending on the group you are working on the growth opportunities might not be a lot in software engineering. A lot of the cool projects are outsourced.

    Advice to Management

    management does not recognize the success in teams. There is a disconnection between the engineers and the higher management.
