I am a pretty easy going optimistic guy and I can handle most any stressful situation. However, working at Cummings has slowly changed me to where I’ve contemplated calling the mental health hotline. The question I have now is if I call how anonymous... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Cummins Inc.
Middle management abuse the employees play contentious mind games. Every department was ordered to cut 10% of the workforce before years end of 2021. Managers have tried to overwhelm and overwork people to try and get them to quit. If someone dies... — read more
Cummins is the kind of company that couldn't care less about their employees if they tried. There is zero respect afforded to anybody who works here unless they're management and/or are related to somebody in the management. It's ridiculous what we... — read more
Revenues for the full year 2020 were $19.8 billion, 16 percent lower than 2019. Sales in North America declined 21 percent and international revenues declined 7 percent. Sales declined in all major regions except China. Continual market decline every... — read more
Cummins has turned into a massive pump and dump scheme. Last year they cut everyone’s pay, produce huge cash flows at the employees expense. Transform the company’s culture into a dumpster fire, everyone is turning against one another. The quality of... — read more
Cummins never learned from its layoffs. The thing that they talk about the care for people and all is complete bu-----t. Making people fool by writing on paper related to how they care employees. Then they layoff. Fu----g company. I will love to see... — read more
Another office permanently closed this week: the Data Center in Columbus, IN. 110 people now dismissed A chosen few will work remotely and all others will be replaced off-shore. The Cummins way!
I wasted 16 years at Cummins, didn’t know it was a waste of time until I moved on. Rolls Royce Aerospace in Indy has several people who left Cummins. No routine RIFS, downsizing, restructuring, global plant closures, non-citizen or work-visa... — read more
Guys - There's a big world out there, stocked high with a wide variety of opportunities. Do you really want to look back at your life and realize how much of it you wasted in a middle American wasteland? Do you really want your highest... — read more
I need input from somebody who has actually been through a "rating calibration" meeting (e.g. managers). Is "forced ranking" still something that happens? When I was a wee lad, my manager told me "it's a rating, not a ranking." This could have been... — read more
Why has this become a totally non-innovative company? Why are there no new, good innovations? No money for innovation? No people who are innovative? Or are innovative and good ideas not appreciated? I’m not sure what all the reasons are, but I know... — read more
Had an interview with HR a few days ago. She informed me about the Cummins pay. Annual bonuses are 8% with a multiplier between .5 and 2. For example, if a person’s salary was $100,000, they received an $8,000 bonus with a multiplier of 2, their... — read more
Looks like quite a bit of CSSNA is about to be outsourced
but apparently Cummins is. I would love to know what they were thinking when they replaced the best professionals with average, cheaper workers. What good can this do for the company in the long run? Worst of all, it is already clear to everyone... — read more
Drain the swamp!!
Because of the google adds blocking portions of the comments. Please fix this issue.
I almost don’t remember the last time we had a good and innovative product. Without such a product, I don’t believe this company can get back on track. Is it possible that we no longer have competent people to innovate? Considering the... — read more

I get the meme: layoffs are on the horizon, so kiss some a– and make it through to the next one. Why did this site become a "b–ch about beautiful people getting no promotions or all the promotions" board instead of the old "layoffs are coming... — read more
Cummins is drowning; another example of fingers in the dyke. The inevitable avalanche is on the horizon. Years of both downsizing and restructuring band aids for reduced market demands from stagnation: not innovation. If Cummins was market expanding... — read more
I worked with a team for several years; over time, learned their behaviors, attitudes, and daily patterns. A pretty woman was hired, and immediately everything changed from management. The manager and his team lead both created a culture of... — read more
Politics is the cancer circulating thru Cummins. I witnessed someone bounce every 2 years onto a different role for over 15 years. He always left a trail of destruction: several people lost their jobs in his path, cause of his incompetence and... — read more
Somebody in another thread observed Cummins is going the way of GE, and I can't help but see the similarities. I think it all starts with Tim Solso having "CEO Envy" of Jack Welch, who was regarded as "America's CEO" at the time when GE was flying... — read more
Cummins advocates voice of the customer; but is blind, deaf and dumb to Voice of the Employee. Residual effects are that customer’s are all directly impacted. Customers are aware of the routine instability at Cummins and are switching service... — read more
I won't lie, working from home has changed my life. It shaved off nearly three hours of commute time each day. Even with the pandemic, I have rarely been happier. More time with family, more time for reading... And it has improved my work, I don't... — read more
Are we safe from cuts in the next few weeks?
This company seems to treat severance payments, replacement recruiting, replacement relocating and replacement training costs as if it was All free. Wouldn’t it be better for shareholders if they just managed the headcount the existing already... — read more
It is very interesting how some of the best staff is leaving Cummins for their competitors. On one of the threads on this forum, a person said that after leaving the company, he even brought others to a competing company. This is something that real... — read more
Seeing my friends, colleagues even adversaries packing their belongings these past few weeks reminds me of many times before, and how I can easily be next. No job security here! Would not recommend Cummins to anyone.
Forced ranking was never more than a smoke screen so that management could eliminate higher paid employees and reduce the workforce into compliant fools. Short term monetary gains are possible when companies can milk old products but eventually the... — read more
Is there anyone who still comes into work determined to give it their 100%? Considering the company’s treatment of their employees, would it really be surprising to know that many are giving up and not even trying? Especially knowing that “cost... — read more

Cummins has progressively market declined for the past several years. Globally closing plants, slashing headcount, desperately downsizing and restructuring band-aids for shareholders (not employees). No innovation. No market expansion. Struggling to... — read more
What's your prediction as it relates to the possiblity of Cummins Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?
Any news on further layoffs?
Does anyone know what the salary ranges are for Cummins (C001, C002, C003)?
I see all the parking lots in Columbus are empty, so I am assuming those plants remain closed. But are there any plants still open? Or is everyone working from home?
The performance score between 1-3 is a bogus scoring system. I had 5 members on my team. Several scored a 1. I was told not to score them a 1. Only so many 1,2 or 3 must be distributed across the team. As a result, I had to score someone a 2 when... — read more
We were told today that more cuts are coming rest of year. People have been walked out all month long, now more cuts coming. WTF!
