    I worked at Cummins full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fortune 500 company. Making efforts to improve IT and standardize across the globe to use standard systems and approach.

    Cons

    Located in a very small and boring city. Most buildings are outdated and cramped. Meeting rooms are never available. Cummins is very cyclical company. Every 2-3 years the company will go through a down time and let go of employees. Cummins is also very good at lateral "promotions" where you don't get paid more but will get extra work to do.

    Advice to Management

    Save some of the profits to update buildings and retain employees during down times. Get rid of the 80-10-10 rule where 10% of the people HAVE to be ranked poorly.

    I have been working at Cummins full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A lot of room to grow, still not a lot of competition as understaffing is still an issue.
    A lot of young people starting up
    Close mingling between upper management and staff engineers, at least in my department. I feel people are more willing to let you come to them (if you can find them!)
    Company's going strong, emissions business is expanding and perhaps will allow those coming in now to take good leadership positions in the industry in the near future, great career prospect

    Cons

    A lot of confusing procedures makes productivity suffer initially while we catch up to the company's way of doing things.
    A bit of an adaptation process, a lot of new people, and a lot of work on everyone's shoulders leaves very little room to ask for help. Nonetheless, everyone you ask will give it an honest shot at helping you out.

    Advice to Management

    A bit more clarity on tasks and make procedures more lean and straightforward. Will give engineers more room to think about tests/designs and other problem-solving issues without the clutter of mandatory actions.
