A terrible place to be a lower level employee
Production Associate (Current Employee) –  Columbus, INDecember 11, 2017
There is little to love about being a production level employee at Cummins. You can say goodbye to any sort of work/life balance. You will either work 70-80 hours per week or be forced down to 4 days per week. This may happen on consecutive months. Your management is transient and poorly trained, the work is dirty and strenuous. The "union" seems to be a company shill that buries grievances and helps to keep employees paid less than industry standards. Expect to use your vacation to cover unplanned shutdown days or weeks.
Pros
Time and a half after 40 hrs, double time after 48, generally good crews to work with
Cons
Cafeteria price gouging, poor management, substandard working conditions

Job is satisfactory
Production (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INDecember 5, 2017
For the most part, employees are paid well. Improvements have been made and some are still being worked on. Management changes from time to time and when that happens, sometimes things are hectic. Advancement? Sometimes. It depends on who is in management and where a person is needed.
Pros
Core group is strong
Cons
Decisions are sometimes made hastily

Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO
I have been working at Procter & Gamble full-time
Pros
Great people, with strong ethical commitment, drive to succeed, and inclusive culture. Very good benefits, fair compensation, and significant training programs for personal development.
Cons
Large, complex organization with complex decision making processes. Going through a challenging time right now, transforming the company while running a huge global business.
Advice to Management
Simplify the org structure. Simplify decision making. Create a culture program to really allow autonomy, risk taking, and small teams to overcome the current culture of decision by committee, no tolerance for risks that go the wrong way, etc.
Pros
Great people, with strong ethical commitment, drive to succeed, and inclusive culture.
Cons
Large, complex organization with complex decision making processes.

Good place to work for technicians
Parts Specialist (Current Employee) –  Cedar Rapids, IA 52404November 28, 2017
Poor management, no functioning teamwork. Boasted in interviews there was extensive room for advancement. This is not accurate for this location. There is not a functioning training program. Managers allow staff to work overly short staffed, and there is no opportunity to make more money via overtime, or advancement.
Pros
Great benefits, if you lived in an area such as MN or Des Moines IA there are many opportunites

DEALER SUPPORT MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNNovember 24, 2017
I managed 9 people having 300 inbound calls and 200 out on a daily average. Assisted several walk in customers. A willing and positive attitude along with computers and desk phones were main tools needed to assist customers with parts look ups, dealer registrations and labor rate increases etc.Management was relaxed and focused the culture was family, honesty, integrity and loyalty. The hardest part about the job was not being able to satisfy the customers needs when it's beyond my control and the most enjoyable part was when the customer shows appreciation for receiving the absolute best customer experience they've ever had.
Pros
family oriented, monthly luncheons, open door, relaxed invironment
Cons
advancements, benefits and pay

most of the co-workers are great with a sense of humor! some are all drama!
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Lakewood, NYNovember 19, 2017
Cummins is a great place to work! The pay is amazing! Bonuses are amazing! Most of the employees are great to work with! But be careful! Some coworkers could care less and have no morals! They're all about drama! Wanna get someone fired? Get someone to say they witnessed another person threatening your life and go to HR! That person will be terminated instantly! No questions asked! HR will never know you lied and the person you don't like will be gone for good and can never be rehired! And no one there cares except for the coworkers that know it didn't happen but are too afraid to speak up as they stand the chance of also losing their job for doing so!
Pros
good pay, free lunches, some awesome co-workers
Cons
a lie can get you fired forever

Poor Management, it's like you walking on egg shells there you can easily get wrote up for any little thing if you`re not one of them that kiss up to management you are as good as gone.

Aweome job at first. Admin Assistant to Indirect Materials manager and assisted Inventory control technician with cycle count process.

Cons
poor mgt in my department, . Other managers were well liked due to their proactive approach with employees.
