Topics regarding layoffs at Cummins Inc.

Definitely NOT cut out for this

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

Total lack of respect

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

They have to layoff and outsource

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

Leave this sh-t company

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 

Permanently Closed

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!

Rolls Royce Aerospace

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 

Forced Ranking

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 


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 

Market Decline

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... —  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 

Is Cummins the new GE?

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 

Voice of the Employee

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 

Pretty wasteful

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 

Packing up!

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.

Giving it your all

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 

Market Decline

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 


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!
