Cummins' normal layoff cycle is 3 years

Cummins' normal layoff cycle is 3 years, so with the last mass layoff of salaried employees being the 4th Quarter of 2015, you should be good until the 4th Quarter of 2018. They never "need" to layoff employees, however if at the end of the year... read more

If 14 years at Cummins has taught me anything. There are two times when Cummins likes to "right size" the company. After Q1 earnings when the year isn't going the way they predicted, and Q4 to try and make year end analyst predictions... and yes, it... read more

Exemplary performance ratings, then a pink slip

I was at Cummins for 16 years with good or exemplary performance ratings then got "laid off" in December of 15. This ended up being a blessing because 1. I had realized how much engineering job salaries outside of Cummins had outpaced Cummins during... read more

Be ready for layoffs at Cummins!

Possible layoffs announced! I'm sure part of this really has to do with China trade war, but something tells me part of this is also the company taking an opportunity that conveniently presented itself... read more

Get ready for the lawsuit.

Cummins forced ranking is horrible. The "coaches" who are your bosses but don't like to be called that will not say if your doing anything wrong or right until the mid year review or year end review and then it's like "if you know I was doing... read more

Anybody hear of impending (new) layoffs with the distributors that have been acquired over the last couple years? Seems like more and more of the back office work will go to Indiana?

Cummins is unethical

Cummins like many big corporations likes to boast how wonderful they are in giving to the United Way. But I believe that they are helping to create a need for the United Way in the first place by destroying the lives of their own employees with... read more

PGBU Operations

Women are screwed in Power Generation....all women on the Fridley PG operations staff have been forced out to other positions, left the company or let go. Many of theses, if not all were deemed high potential prior to the current plant managed. He... read more

Power Generation operations

A real joke! Positions cut in Dec 2015 were filled within a month! Job pistings that were frozen to save $ were reopened within months. All this to "save money" when reality is that it was for the advantage of year end stock prices. This company... read more

Yes, but...

Yes, they are a great employer if you are not a salaried employee, in which case you are subject to the forced ranking system and mass layoffs every 3-4 years of experienced and dedicated employees. The only people that would see Cummins as a decent... read more

I will celebrate when Cummins goes bankruptcy

I was threw away by Cummins in 10 minutes after 7 years service. No explanations at all. My rankings were 2 or 2 + in the past years. I just relocated here by the company. I bought a house and sold my old house. No compensation for my losses. My 10... read more

Cummins get it together!

Columbus is doomed! Cummins keeps so much going downtown, the downtown restaurants will start closing and the housing will go down - this will be massive for local economy, it's not like it's very diversified so the hit will be massive.. Hotel Indigo... read more

Corporate Office / Rocky Mountain

How bout the Corporate Office at Rocky Mountain. It does not seem right that Cummins will keep all these corporate offices with that new builing going up in Indiana

Cummins' Forced Rating and Ranking System

The system sucks. It's as simple as that and Cummins is poorly managing it on top of it. I've seen forced rating and ranking systems before, rank and yank kind of deals, all of them are bad but we are especially bad.The whole process requires you to... read more
