    I have been working at Cummins full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large company, global presence, many locations

    Cons

    Managers, specifically in Corporate, and the HR function have no integrity and do not know how to implement their own processes. Mgrs rely on their direct reports to do their work and they take the credit unless their a mistake. Corporate HR in Columbus is a joke, no integrity at all. It is a pony show, they focus on who they can be "seen" by they don't have a clue on how to execute their own processes and forget what they say because honesty is not their policy, you can not remember a lie. A really sad organization and my goal is to find another job ASAP!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Bring Tim Solso back and clean house and get back to being an organization with integrity. When Tom Linebarger took over it felt like we went from a democratic platform to Tea Party. Sad place to work and all employees see the drastic difference but leadership manipulates employee survey info to make it say what they want it to say, which is not reality.

    I worked at Cummins full-time

    Pros

    With all due respect, I cannot think of any

    Cons

    Use of H1B Visas suppressed wages and limited opportunities significantly (perhaps almost totally)
    Six sigma forced to be used in ways it did not apply or were beneficial to the company
    Treatment of employees was abysmal
    Facilities were unclean and dismal, which should change with the new building
    The "Jack Welsh" rating and performance system used to grade employees and fire employees was based on politics, and was a joke because the management team was forced to identify 10% of the workforce each year that had performance problems regardless of how the employees were actually performing. Worse yet, the program was abusive. It was called "take your turn in the barrel" and had nothing to do with performance. At some point, each employee was given a rating of "3" and was forced to go through a meaningless performance improvement system. Although the reason for getting a "3" was meaningless and baseless, the consequences were dire and many times included losing your job - all because your manager was not as good at defending you in the yearly management review meeting as someone else's as they were trying to come up with the "mandatory" ten percent of employees who were "poor" performers.
