Pros

Cummins core values, enforced code/treatment policies, endless opportunities, flexibility.

Cons

This isn't so much a con but a good to know about the company. In order to get where you want to be, you have to be one that can sell yourself by networking and getting to know people. This can be a challenge for some because of the uncomfortableness of not only meeting people but having to talk about yourself to them. Also, you have to manage your own work/life balance. If you want to work 70 + hours a week, Cummins will not stop you. However, it is not expected. It will be up to you to determine the right balance for you.

    Pros

    Great company to work for, if not for anything, for the people that you get to work with. There is a sense of "doing the right thing" wherever you are in the company, and it feels genuine. They care about the environment, and improving the community with them wherever they are. Employees are open minded, so even though projects can be boring, there is always some fun around.

    Cons

    Not the best salaries in the business, although not the worst either. Upper management does not inspire confidence at all. One day they hire thousands, next day they fire just as many. Politics everywhere, you need to know people to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Create a sense of stability within the company. People can't be productive when they see others around them being let go all the time. Loyalty seems to be fading fast, and it's both ways. All the good the company does becomes meaningless fast when you don't feel secure.

    Pros

    Salary
    Vacations & Holidays
    Insurance
    Career Opportunties
    Community Involvement opportunties

    Cons

    Expect to self train for your position. Difficult to find individuals to support your development. Opportunites for career advancements not based on skill or abilitiy, you need a guardian in your corner. Out-dated computer systems. Very cyclical environment...knee jerk reaction to ecomonic conditions - hires a 1000 employess in first 6 months of the year then turns around and randomly fires that many by the end of the year.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in new technology - computer & software systems. Seek better alternatives to your staffing requirements, less hiring and firing...need more coaching and development for current employees
