    I have been working at Cummins full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good ethics from the top and genuine customer focused company. Excellent place to work for females, interns. Huge opportunity to travel in some roles. Some really good people work at Cummins who are ethical, passionate and driven. Great heritage and products True global company.

    Cons

    Diversity used to mean everyone is treated equally and fairly. Now diversity mainly means gender. Which is a backwarda step. Very political now, less focus on getting things done, lots of confusing cooperate communication. Massive company so can be very confusing to work in and understand. Cummins is a length of service company, difficult to progress unless you have been there for years and years (unless you fulfil a diversity metic).
