Thread regarding Cummins Inc. layoffs

Why so much micromanagement?

Here are the consequences:

  • heightened stress and health issues
  • reduced productivity / poor job performance
  • demoralized employees
  • I'm starting to hate my job
  • I send more job applications to other companies than ever

I don't understand why micromanagement is needed of anyone, especially long-term employees who have long ago proven that they are capable of doing a good job and that they do not need so much micromanagement. Maybe they are intentionally creating pressure for me to leave here voluntarily?

That happens alot in Cummins where we have managers that where friends with people and/or management and become managers and don't know what the fu-k they are doing.

You need to micromanage when your direct reports are "low-wage" warm bodies and you want to get anything done. That, or you became a manager because you were buddies with the right person, and you have no idea what you are doing and should have never been a manager in the first place.

I have seen it happening and I believe it’s due to the company not doing very good business wise. They are doing any and everything to apply pressure on people. I would move on and get a new job cause when Cummins Inc phases out all the stuff they are on won’t even matter

There is a posting here on “Politics” from several months ago. I suggest you scroll down and read thru that exchange. Speaks volumes. The Cummins way.
