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
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
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 to open German fuel cell factory in 2021 Engine manufacturer Cummins, United States, has announced that it will open a new hydrogen fuel cell systems factory in Herten, Germany, in July... — 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!
CEO Norman Thomas Linebarger never came to our site not once in the 10 years I worked for Cummins in Indiana. His headquarters were down the street. 3 years ago, C Vijayakumar visited our site. Most of you never heard of him. He’s the CEO from HCL... — read more
Would any of you who seem to hate Cummins so much like to trade with one of the millions of people who have lost their jobs since March? And who have no way of finding replacements any time soon since the virus is still destroying the economy? No?... — read more
Will there be more layoffs or are we done?
Did any one get one last nights call about layoffs
Anyone who has been here knows what Cummins is like. Slow to change, quick to lay off, and with challenging growth opportunities at best. Turnover is high, and it’s mostly experienced individuals leaving once they realize this place no longer values... — read more
How long before Cummins realizes if work can still get done with people working from home, they can save a ton of money if the "home" just so happens to be Pune or Wuhan instead of Columbus or Seymour?
It appears the rumor mill is saying more layoffs in mid October 2020. Very upsetting news considering the number of newly appointed executives just announced. I find this very insulting considering the number of employees, especially the exempt ones... — read more
We supply the outside case filters (shells) to Cummins and they are doing the same thing where I am at. I feel everyone's pain they don't care about you at all.
In 2014, I met an H1-B Visa worker. I had been on the job for a year. She came outside crying. I asked her what was wrong. She told me she had just been fired. It was a RIF. I was relatively new. I saw many others shown the doors same day. She had... — read more
I know my option of rolling over my 401k into my IRA. Curious about options with Cummins pension? If I win the Cummins lottery this time, do I have the same option to roll that into a pre tax account like my IRA? Thank you in advance for any... — read more
Heard that Cummins has already started restructuring. That’s usually the first sign before layoffs start. Any news?
There is beginning to be lots of chatter on the filtration side of Cummins that layoffs are looking likely this fall. We here that lines are going to be moved out and a lay-off of up to about 200 employees is coming. Can anyone provide info about... — read more
Heard that Trump wants to stop processing of worker visas. Will this create more opportunities for unemployed people in the US? How will this affect Cummins? Will they outsource more jobs? Or will they hire American?
Has it been easy for employees around 50+ to find jobs after being let go by Cummins this year?
