    I have been working at Cummins full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.

    I worked at Cummins full-time (More than 8 years)

    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
