Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fridley, MN
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Fridley, MN
Approves of CEO

Pros

Tremendous growth opportunities
Dynamic, fast paced
Good products, strong market positions (particularly in developing markets)
Very strong and well respected senior leadership (at Cummins Corporate and President level)
Performance-based review process (not always well implemented)
Thin management ranks gives lots of opportunity to take more responsibility..if you have time

Cons

Leadership below President level is poor (not strategic, highly political, too busy to lead)
Do not have sufficient resources to support aspirations. We say we want to grow fast, but the same obstacles budgets, HR policies impede that
Physical facilities are sub-standard (being fixed currently)
Unpleasant work environment, many people are unhappy
Uneven share of value (employees vs. management)

Advice to Management

Reward your employees more when performance is strong (why cap variable pay?)
Hire people faster, take the shackles of your hiring managers
Spend some money

    Great Salary
    Lots of Diversity

    Cons

    Do not stick by mission and/or values
    Management lacking in communication
    Management very contradictory
    Lots of politics and plenty of "playing favorites"
    Management deflects blame from themselves onto the employees below them even when management is clearly at fault

    Really start to listen to your employees whether they have years of experience or are just starting out as an intern. Also improvement on lack of communication and/or contradicting communication is a MUST.
