Cummins Onan of Elkhart
production (Current Employee) –  Cummins Onan of Elkhart, IndianaSeptember 5, 2016
I have worked for Cummins Onan of Elkhart for many years now. I can tell you that there is nothing good to really say about this facility. You can come in drunk or high or just be lazy and they will promote you. Work hard and you will be treated poorly. An RV factory like Thor, Forest River, or Jayco will treat you a lot better than here. The leadership team and management are a joke. We can't get good employees to stay because of the way they are treated. The pay is decent and the benefits as well but honestly it's not worth it. If you dead set on working for Cummins, then I would recommend any of the other facilities.
Pros
Instant vacation and benefits
Cons
Never ending overtime and poor management

Worst senior management, firing cycle every 2 years
Analyst (Former Employee) –  Columbus, INJune 14, 2016
I worked at Cummins for almost 2 years as an Analyst. Unlike most people, I had a really bad work life balance. I ended up working close to 70-80 hours a week and the senior leadership provided no help or even cared about employees work life balance. They were not at all empathetic. Cummins is a company which will always boast about being ethical and diverse but they can do anything in the name of diversity. They don't treat ethical complaints seriously and will blame you for everything. They also hire college grads for senior roles so that they wont have to pay more to get the same work done and make employees life difficult. Cummins also goes through a layoff cycle every 2 years when they fire more than 2000 people which is a very stressful time for all the employees.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Employees laid off every 2 years, cheap company, worst management, bad HR policies

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

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.

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

Up-lift technician-not a promising job at all
UPLIFT TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) –  Henderson, COApril 28, 2016
Management is horrible in this department and when things get tough they lay off their most valuable employees. Best advice do not go work for this company if you want to make money or advance, no raises in two years and then laid off because they can't make a sale for their generators. And on top of it all the fraternization between married employees that nobody notices or turns their head at. The favoritism is deplorable here. This company went from a really good company with excellent benefits to a horrible company, with horrible management that has hour long meetings to tell you how bad you are at your job. Best advice stay clear of this place in Colorado.

Excellent, american dream driven career opportunities
Independent diesel engine Machinist (Former Employee) –  Lakewood, NYJuly 5, 2016
Cummins is one of the best companies I've ever had the honor of working for. Family oriented, die-hard American-dream driven company. My time there was excellent, and rarely ever had any issue with the 1500 plus employees. The company hires dependable driven people who want careers not just jobs. I was unfortunately let go/laid off, when Cummins stock dropped due to the diesel industry being hit so hard recently. But I fully understand this company cannot control the economy. So with that being said, this place always listens to their employees and gives them 9/10 times what they ask for within reason. Great community outreach, and clean facility.
I absolutely loved this company and everyone I had met while working there.
Pros
bonuses, raises, promotions, holiday pay, insurance, retirement
Cons
short lunch break

Good people and room for advancement.
Welder, quality inspector, material handler (Former Employee) –  Wautoma, WIJune 8, 2016
I started as a welder. Mid, tig, and robotic welding was required. Later, I moved into the quality office, where I inspected parts before employees could start producing them. Unloading trucks with a forklift was also one of my duties. I learned how to properly inspect parts, use a CMM machine, do cleanliness testing, and weld. The employees and management were very nice people. The hardest part of the job was getting burnt while welding. The best part was having my own desk and computer.
Pros
There is room for advancement.
Cons
Welding is a very dirty and sometimes painful job.

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

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.
