I have been working at Cummins full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Cummins is a good company for international employees, payring for H1 and green cards. Also pays for higher education (bachelor or master degrees)

Cons

Managers have a discretion to freeze people in position for a year. Pay is below average. If at the headauarters, one has to be in the inner circle and know the important people in order to advance. Poor life work balance and company is very cyclical going on hiring binge one year only to lay off the very next.

Advice to Management

After interview, do give applicants a feedback, don't let them hang dry for months so they can figure out on their own they did not get the job.

    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 Most buildings are outdated and cramped.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.
