Pros

Excellent benefits in a market that doesn't always offer them. Also, great growth potential and a forward-thinking performance management system that helps employees to discern areas for development. Quarterly performance checks and annual reviews.

Most managers recognize the need for a good work-life balance, and are flexible with employees that have occasional needs to accomodate family, etc.

Cummins also has an excellent track record at recognizing and valuing diversity.

Cons

As an manufacturing company in the automotive industry, the fortunes of the company are largely tied to the heavy-duty truck market. However, the company has been careful to diversify over the last 5 years or so, and is now well positioned to ride out cyclical storms.

Advice to Management

You can never communicate too much. Trust your employees with more information. You do a good job of communicating good news and bad, but sometimes there is a delay in the bad news. You know that people are already expecting the bad, so don't hold back.

    Pros

    Good place to learn Pro-E software as design engineer

    Cons

    Rating and ranking does not make sense. They rank all 22-23 salary grade people against each other which include design engineers (so called Designer), development engineers, test engineer, application engineers etc. Lower 10% people donot get annual raise at all. No vision benefit. People who do 3D modeling 24 X 7, cummins call them designer (Design Engineer). If you want to learn how to use Pro-E, then start your career at Cummins as design engineer. Waste too much money on duplicate tasks. From Alpha to Beta design changes a lot. Design engineers have do drafting work to create preliminary graphics which I think is kind of waste of time and money. It can be done cheaply by using drafters. But cummins uses drafter only for final design prints.

    Advice to Management

    Be professional. Dress like manager. I never liked the way our department head dress.

    Pros

    Fantastic place to work. Outstanding people. Strong management. Good recognition and support for work/life balance. Significant focus and support for diversity. Not what one expects for an automotive company based in the Midwest. Compensation is known to be about average for the industry. Heavy six sigma focus is deeply entrenched. A company of high integrity and ethics.

    Cons

    There is a high performance ethic. You won't be expected to work extraordinarily long hours but you will be expected to make solid contributions. The annual rating and ranking is rigorously maintained and applied. Two years straight in the lower group and separation is the most likely outcome.

    Advice to Management
