    I have been working at Cummins full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    a lot of decent friendly people work here. relaxed atmosphere. good for university leavers.

    Cons

    management make a lot of poor strategy mistakes, the employee at the bottom always ends up copping it. once you leave the graduate scheme you are forgotten about. limited development opportunities. overly rigid pay structure means hard work and potential often go unrewarded. usually do a restructure every other year, and therefore you constantly live in fear of the boot no matter how hard you work. 'cummins core values'...

    Advice to Management

    dont ask for employee opinions and then totally disregard them. stop keeping secrets, it only fuels more rumours and lowers morale.
