    I worked at Cummins as a contractor

    Pros

    Good benefit package with pension, Average salary in the market, Good start company for new graduate

    Cons

    1. Bad management. So many politics in almost every department. Projects and new ideas not based on the business/marketing requirements instead of who is the person stand back with you.
    2. Many old guys are doing nothing but waiting for retirement. They play cards after lunch in the cafetiere. You will see managers or engineers near 80 years old but still working in the company.
    3. Layoff good people just because those guys speak too much or tell the truth in the meeting.
    4. Very bad project management. No one will be responsible for the project delay so almost all projects have delays. Some project delays just because people need job security.
    5. Many stupid 6S projects. People fools each other with those stupid projects. They save tons of paper money from these 6S projects.
    6. Buildings and manufacture facility is really old like 80s.

    Advice to Management

    1. Get those old guys out and make the company more efficient.
    2. No politics allowed in the project management.
    3. Get less MBAs. They really do less than experienced engineers.

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Can't see any pros in catering to special interest for political expedience

    Cons

    Executives playing a game of political correctness catering to a fringe minority. A majority of employees feel insulted by the company's social position which they have enveloped in the term "diversity". The diverse global employee base does not agree with internal GLBT programs which goes against the grain of the majority beliefs.

    Advice to Management

    Having moral character is not discriminatory.
