Diesel Technician Lead (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – February 9, 2016
Been working here for a few years now, I love the work that I do. But management is somewhat of a joke. The pay is way below average,and they don't like giving raises either. My co-workers were great to work with, but training is also something they lack in, as in they don't really train people. Benefits are horrible now, high deductible plans only. Not worth working there.
Be careful. They fired 2,000 last year and I have three close friends that have left the company in the last 30 days to flee the new upper and middle management.Executives scared to negotiate for business. Huge loss in sales drive and motivation.
average salary, benefits
Turning into a company of meetings and indecisiveness.
Quality Auditor (Current Employee) – Columbus, IN – October 15, 2015
Overall not a bad place to work, management is what often determines the quality of the day and that can vary significantly. There is a conflict of interest between exempt and union workers which is not good for the business, and typically shop floor workers are not viewed in as high of a regard as exempt. Lots of opportunity for improvement, both personally and for the company, although the ease with which one might pursue those opportunities relies too heavily on image and who you know.
Opportunities for advancement, insurance, company-matched 401k
Opportunities are not equal, rising insurance costs; pay, job security, and retirement not as good as it once was
Too many frequent and radical changes in direction, in addition to nearly guaranteed cancellation of product programs leads to awful motivation to do good work as you are always fairly confident it will go completely to waste.
Pay, work/life balance, immediate management
Upper management emphasizes the stockholder over the employee
Combustion/Performance/Emissions Engineer (Current Employee) – Seymour, IN – December 13, 2015
Great benefits but work/home balance is not at all considered in some roles. Leadership lack focus on career development. Allowing adequate time to developed and train in role is not available. Multiple rounds layoffs make job security tenuous.
Team Leader (Former Employee) – CMEP – March 29, 2016
Best job I ever had. Great place to work. I learned a lot because the training is excellent. The work environment is great because every one gets along great. They are very welcoming of new people and cultures.
Warehouse Associate (Current Employee) – Irvine, CA – January 29, 2016
I have been there a year and love it. Just wish they would include raises with all of the reviews they do. They offer quarterly bonuses, food, and really good training. Hardest part of the job is doing some of the heavy lifting.
Quarterly bonuses, free food sometimes, and safety meetings.
Short breaks, expensive health insurance, and some of the employees aren't a pleasure to work with.
In the time working with this once thought incredible company is not as great as everyone makes it out to be well at least i speak in my department at Cummins. Management is very carefree. Many of the coworkers come in not so pleasant moods. People with bad moods make the environment non-pleasurable and sometime hostel to work in. I choose to not acknowledge this I arrive to work in a timely manner get my job complete and head home. The hardest part i would have to say would be trying to be aware of which people to speak to which not. My job is not hard being that i am mechanically inclined the job is but a breeze. The most pleasurable part i would have to say would be getting to do what i enjoy most work on engines.

Drafting Coach Manager (Current Employee) – Columbus, IN – January 6, 2016
Cummins is a great place to work. It is just hard to work through tough times when the company's business don't do well. The company offers all kind of opportunities to advance in your career. there is nothing wrong yet I can find with Cummins.
Working from home is my favorite. It helps me a lot to balance my family and work life.
typical work day is pretty normal for an engineer. I learned how to be a professional management is not always very good - lots of turnover too. lots of different people being a big organization. hardest part of the job is understanding office politics most enjoyable is working with a team to solve problems
Service Supervisor (Former Employee) – Sparks, NV – October 16, 2015
The expectations of the service writers and managers is very high. Even when not on salary i was getting calls at home. Even when not being on call or even after I was let go, i receive calls at home due to lack of organization in upper management and HR.
The pay was great but the stress caused by upper management made it tough. The branch manager declined my yearly profit sharing that would have been given a few weeks after my termination. Even after working the full year prior. Could have easily filled for wrongful termination as well, but didn't feel the job was worth my time.
Lack of experience and fairness in upper management and HR
The workplace environment is pretty good, people are respectful. However it is often hard to get them to respond to requests. Parts of management really care about their people, some parts doesn't listen to or care about employees. Once Cummins decides it is going to do something the opinions of the employees are ignored. 'Efficiency improvements' are thinly veiled attempts to require more responsibility with the same pay.
Credit Analyst (Former Employee) – New Hudson, MI – January 28, 2016
Okay company to work for, but after a year or two need to move onto something else. Using their accounting software Management-no problems Co-workers solid Hardest part of job: punching in / punching out/ 30 min lunch times
Production Support & Product Development Engineer (Former Employee) – Jamestown, NY – February 9, 2016
Company stuck int he past with archaic change control processes. High level management fails to provide the resources necessary for engineers to succeed. Physical work environment is depressing and dirty few considerations are made for employee comfort or well being (Jamestown engine plant).
Co-workers however are friendly and helpful. Day to day things are ok
Passive aggressive upper management, dirty Depressing and outdated work environment, frustratingly outdated and needlessly complicated business tools hinder progress.
Working at Cummins was fun and exciting as there was a great company culture and work life balance. Working often involved meeting with multiple people within different aspects of the company solving problems and working with customers. Management was very supportive and the company put the education of employees on the forefront as there were many technical seminars to train employees on a variety of subjects.
