While still employed I’ve been networking my bu-t off and “shopping” around for prospective employers. In an interview I’ve had recently I was informed that still being employed was in my favor as opposed to most. I’ve kept my resume updated and I... — read more
I'm tired of it. I'm an adult who's been working at Cummins for seven years and I know exactly what I need to do and how to do it. I don't need a manager who follows my every move, breathing down my neck day in, day out to tell me to do the thing I... — read more

Signed a 2 yr contract with the company, and am 2 months in and already wanting to run for the hills. Best way to win the layoff lottery?
So called Cummins culture drives away anyone of value. These CLOWNS will let the highest skilled profitable employees walk out the door or terminate their position because they think it saves them money and profits their shareholders. Meanwhile they... — read more

Can someone here advise how bad is the turnover or layoffs in the emissions division? From everyone's comments here, it seems as though Cummins a toxic environment to work for. Is that true? A lot of micromanaging managers that are worse than... — read more
Cummins technicians at the San Leandro California branch walked out yesterday over Cummins lousy medical plan. After 18 months of negotiations, management demanded that the techs give up their existing plan, even though they were willing to pay more... — read more
This office was permanently closed last month. 110 people in that office, 50 were Cummins personnel, the remaining were all Suppliers or Contractors. The firing has begun. Cummins is both reducing employee headcount, and replacing outsourcing service... — read more
A former colleague who I worked closely with in my BU left almost a year ago and we connect every few months just to touch bases. In a recent conversation we had he expressed an interest in being rehired here. I thought he was joking at first - then... — read more
Is it safe to approach them with an issue or not?
Joined Cummins 10 years ago, surprised I am still here. They’ve moved me recently for a job that I don’t really enjoy, but I signed a 2 year policy. Any of you been relocated by Cummins, and left before your 2 years were up? Did they come after... — read more
Worrying about being laid off all the time sucks, mildly put.
The meaning of layoffs is not part of their vision to fix this company and to improve things, instead behind the cuts always stands their greed. After people were laid off, what changed here? Is it any better or is it quite the opposite - worse... — read more
They like to play with people, don’t they? I don't even know what my duties are anymore because they are constantly changing. My role has changed a few times and this time I said I have had enough of these mental gymnastics! Working at Cummins is a... — read more
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
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

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
