Pros

Cummins is america's greatest manufacturer of diesel engines. It has significant and profitable growth opportunities ahead and will be a great place to work.

Cons

Six-sigma is forced upon employees in cases where it is not the best way to solve a problem. Also locations are a bit at odd places.

    Pros

    1. Lots of free time at hand since job is 8-to-5
    2. Nice people as it is in the midwest.

    Cons

    1. You will be stuck in this industry with no great learning and exit options.
    2. The pay is too low compared to the other companies.

    Advice to Management

    You need to differentiate between the best employees and the average joes. The hiring process is too haphazard with lots of people hired during boom and similarly lots fired during bust without considerable planning.
