Supportive and Inspired
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Mineral Point, WIDecember 29, 2016
Overall I enjoyed my time at Cummins. I liked the how people will get to know you and are supportive of a positive work environment. The main problem is the lack of support - not enough operators and work fluctuation.
The idea of going up the ladder is promoted but there is limited opportunities for growth at this time. Many changes are being pursued but little actual promise is given for job security. I've known temporaries to quit because they would be given little if any idea when they could get hired on. If given the opportunity get direct heir.
Pros
Safety lunches
Cons
Uncertain job security

Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Memphis, TNDecember 16, 2016
very quick learning place, new things fast pace working skills, must be aware at all times, very cautious work environment, heavy lifting, bending, pushing, pulling, working around fumes. I learned a lot about heavy machinery as to what there called proper locations, as well as there use. The hardest about the job is staying up to speed, keeping your numbers at there highest , lifting equipment that weighs over a 100 pounds, with the use of a crane. I learned a lot from this job, things I never knew that I could be taught. it was a very well learning experience.
Pros
employee apperciations, special lunchons
Cons
short breaks

Great place to work but demanding
Road Foreman, Service Advisor and Technician (Former Employee) –  Dedham, MANovember 28, 2016
Great Company to work for. Demanding, but fair. requires any employee to give there best no matter what the position.

As Foreman the best part of the job was interacting with your customers and the technicians that work for you.

Meeting sales and production requirements like any big company is challenging.
Pros
Great people to work with and benefits are great.
Cons
As a salary employee sometimes the days were long and expectations to high

Good Company to work for
Senior Product Engineer (Current Employee) –  Columbus, INNovember 12, 2016
Pros
Cummins culture of treatment of employees is absolutely fantastic. Mistreatment of others is something that is not tolerated at Cummins. The financials of the company are very solid and they have a very competent leadership team. The senior leadership of the company are comprised mostly of long term employees and tends to do well at developing employees for career growth.
Cons
Sometime Cummins can be overly collaborative, making the decision making process much longer than it needs to be. This can sometimes result in the ability of any person to stop progress of a project or program.

INSTRUMENTATION TECHNICIAN (Current Employee) –  Columbus, INNovember 10, 2016
I loved what i do for Cummins. My degree was in Electronics engineering. Loved traveling to all the places domestically and internationally. The hardest part of my job was having to deal with the beginning of dis-respect from a certain department within Cummins. They started treating their people like children and threatening and writing people up for insubordination for not stretching in the morning before they perform their daily jobs.
Pros
Traveling and getting to meet new customers from diverse backgrounds.
Cons
Treating people like children.

Maintenance Manager (Current Employee) –  Columbus, INDecember 18, 2016

Pros
Opportunity for growth and other positions.
Cons
Long weeks

Horribly Managed
Power Generation Technician (Former Employee) –  ColoradoJanuary 6, 2017
Work/life balance involves way too much work.
All technicians are treated as oil changers.
No room for advancement.
They will hire over you, instead of promoting within
Pros
pay was okay
Cons
weekend work was mandatory regardless of experience or trade level, Little recognition abilities, Little room for advancement for the hardest working up and coming technicians

Enjoyed working at Cummins.
Mechanical Engineering Technician (Former Employee) –  Columbus, INOctober 25, 2016
Directions and responsibilities were clear, knew what was expected and resources were available when presented with issues.

All aspects of engine development, instrumentation, calibration, strain-guage installation and data collection, engine performance emissions and endurance testing.

Management was always available for direction.

Co-workers were always friendly and helpful.

The hardest part of the job was keeping up with the busy schedule.

The most enjoyable part of the job was achieving accurate results and the coworkers.
Pros
Gained enormous engine testing abilities
Cons
Cannot think of any.

Fuel Systems Injector Performance Testing Intern (Former Employee) –  Columbus, INOctober 15, 2016
The great thing about being an intern at Cummins is that Cummins does care for interns and they want to rehire you into their work force. An emphasis is made to make sure interns do meaningful work which properly trains interns for the real world. In the fuel systems department, i found that they have many extra curricular activities for the employees so that friendships are made and work does not become stale.
Pros
Many Affinity groups, engaging environment
Cons
Some departments had less to do

A company on decline that no longer values performance or external ideas.
Engineering (Former Employee) –  Shoreview, MNNovember 14, 2016
A former product company infected with Harvard MBA's knowing nothing about products or customers that is in decline. It's hard to see any initiative that can reverse this with the entrenched management.
Pros
Still manufacturing products.
Cons
Outsourcing and obsession with processes and management fads

Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Savannah, GAOctober 18, 2016
It is the only company looking for mechanics so often and so much,why mechanics don't last much in it?,Cummins is not what it used to be years ago,clients have their equipment down for years after they reported their problems,supervisors and managers are not able to be reached by customers,so good customers and contracts are lost,so be very careful before applying to this company,think it twice.

Productive and fun/safe place to work with a basketball court.
Test Technician/ Upfit Technician (Former Employee) –  Whitakers, NCSeptember 26, 2016
A typical day at work starts off with you at your station making sure everything is in order and ready to get started, kind of a fast pace job, you learn what kind of pipes you'll have to put on each motor that comes through your station. Management is top notch, co-workers are like family. There's nothing hard about working at CDC, the most enjoyable thing about working there was how much everybody got along with each other/help one another, basketball games against other shifts.
Pros
great benfits/ awesome people
Cons
none

Product Engineer (Former Employee) –  El Paso, TXSeptember 21, 2016
Cummins is a good stable company with an excellent work force. My typical work day involved working with Quality Engineering and Manufacturing to ensure product was being assembled and tested according to Cummins Product specifications, resolving product issues during assembly and test, and analyzing product functional failures.
Most work was performed in a team based system involving Quality Engineering, Product Engineering, Operations, Materials, and Manufacturing Engineering.
Job responsibilities also included leading and participating in improvement and cost reduction projects.
Pros
Working with an excellent work team.
Cons
None

HR at Nashville Customer Care Center promotes discrimination.
Customer Care Technical Manager (Call Center) (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNOctober 15, 2016
HR at Nashville Customer Care Center promotes discrimination.

If you raise the red flags, definitely you are fired!

Lot of office politics to deal with. If you are not a part of their dirty culture - it is difficult to survive.
Pros
Global company
Cons
Lot of office politics and bureaucracy

Production
Packer (Current Employee) –  Memphis, TNSeptember 12, 2016
They are expecting you as an individual to produce a number of packages per hours. I talking about numbers that is impossible to reach. They are willing to send you home if you not reaching production. Workers are standing on their feet for hours and dedicated to the job, but you leads and supervisors wondering why you cannot product 90 boxes of hours and provide little help occasionally to pick up the slack. But, your job security is still on the border line of losing and that's not a good feeling working for Cummins
Pros
Networking with fellow employess
Cons
Hard Labor and Benefits are terrible
