    Pros

    Lots of different opportunities in a variety of facets- engine size, application, etc.

    Cons

    Yearly ranking that is based more on who you know and how much you suck up rather than how good of a job you actually do.

    Advice to Management

    The ranking system is flawed, and actual performance is not recognized at the lower levels. There is so much push for people to 'look good' that when an issue is found no one wants to bring it up. From all of my managers the lesson has been the same 'My way or the highway'.

    Pros

    Good, stable company with family-friendly policies. Opportunity exists to switch career path, not only in Columbus but other Cummins Locations throughtout the world.

    Cons

    Not much top-down communication. Often feels like your work is done to make supervisor look good instead of working to meet top management goals. Constant changes in employee benefits - hard to keep current. Different benefit plans for different groups of employees/locations, i.e. plans different for hourly employees depending on what union they belong to, which plant they work at and how much seniority they have. Makes it hard for HR generalist to keep the plans seperate in order to counsel employees. Company would benefit greatly by standardizing benefits for all employees.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to people in the middle of the organization, the ones who actually do the work. You'll get a totally different perspective on how employees really feel and what truly goes on.
