Company filled with managers and very poor in ethics and good in racism
Technical specialist (Former Employee) –  Huddersfield, West Yorkshire4 September 2018
It is a manager`s company; very poor work ethics in product engineering team and typically no promotion at work.

HR is terrible and they do not know their job description at all.

Good for new starters and graduates to start their career.

Soft skills are more important than technical aspects and always struggle to find a right solution for an issue. Typically 99% of the field failure issues resolved through risk assessment only. Not a good place to work; for a technically competent person.

Performance reviews based on race ( racism ) and not on their actual performance.
Pros
global exposure
Cons
every other stuff

Not a great place to work
Global Mobility Specialist / Immigration (Former Employee) –  Stockton-on-Tees3 September 2018
Cummins Business Services in Stockton is not a great place to work at all. They do not welcome outsiders. The managers are not professional and the team I worked in the manager should not have been a manager. I was alienated and the ring leader was the manager.

Productive place to work - Management need looking at
DOT, Test Engineer and Teardown Engineer (Former Employee) –  Daventry, Northamptonshire24 July 2018
Advancements, Salaries, Job security are pretty solid things at Cummins however, the management especially in the production test area need re-evaluating to see if they actually know what they are doing.

From my experience, some things were good...the things you couldn't really get wrong however, processes, people management all goes out the window.
Pros
Advancement
Cons
Management lack leadership skills (Test Area)

Good place to work However they seemed to loose focus on Quality to become more productive
100% visual inspection of engine blocks
Identify any rework or salvage work required
Ensure all work is carried out to Cummins standards
Production line audits to ensure machining accuracy before final inspection of engine blocks
Two inspectors should inspect up to 10 blocks /shift between them
Pros
Good working conditions

Lost focus on quality

Great policies, weak adherence
Manager (Former Employee) –  UK6 June 2018
Great place to work on paper but some facilities suffer from extremely toxic middle management. Employee engagement surveys brushed under the carpet and offenders given lateral moves away from line management positions. Not a meritocracy as would expect.

Good Salary but not a great company
Finance Analyst (Current Employee) –  Daventry29 April 2018
Good company to work for if you are a graduate on the internal scheme. However, not a corporate company, really slow on development and progression and management hierarchy are usually internal promotions through favouritism so some appointments are unjustified.
Pros
Canteens...flexible hours
Cons
No work from home policy. No progression
