    Trane La Crosse

    Manager (Current Employee)
    La Crosse, WI

    Prosdecent pay and benefits. Company is relatively stable and HQ is investing in this location. Most of the regular workforce are friendly enough.

    ConsThere is a very bad company culture at this location. There is a general lack of appreciation and respect for employees. Constant finger pointing. management is clueless and reactive to latest crisis of the day, rather than long term priorities. Aging workforce that is just putting in their time and waiting to retire.

    Advice to Senior Managementtop management and HR should be replaced.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Run Forrest Run

    Team Leader (Former Employee)
    Cincinnati, OH

    ProsYou get a pay-check as long as you follow senior management's aproach

    ConsFor the past 10 years when it rains outside...it rains just as hard inside the plant, most plant restrooms are never functional (restroom sewers constantly not available overflowing or backed-up), hourly employee parking lot is a disaster (so non-maintained that walking in the lot to the plant entrances is a sever hazard), dead or almost dead 3" roach carcasses are always laying around administrative hallways & offices, senior management talks down to Team Leaders to establich superiority by using a passive aggressive approach to acquire information and assign non-realistic task due dates just to appear that they are involved

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet Real, look in the mirror and you will see the problem

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Club Car has the lowest morale of anywhere I've ever worked in my life

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Augusta, GA

    ProsClub Car Pros: If you want to live in Augusta GA, you can work for Club Car instead of making the move to Atlanta. While there, you will appreciate the positive leadership you saw from senior managers at many of the other places you've worked before. You will also appreciate the work life balance you enjoyed before you started working mandatory Saturdays at Club Car.

    ConsHaving to watch a once-proud company after it's been nickel-&-dimed" to the point of death.
    Hourly workers are sent home frequently w/out pay.
    Salaried workers are consistently working unpaid overtime because they don't have the tools or the resources to do their jobs well.
    The only thing that gets done in meetings is back-stabbing and blame-game sabotage.
    People are scared of senior managers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop focusing on making the product cheaper - it's only resulted in more and more customer complaints and added headaches as staff attempts to react without spending any money to fix problems. Don't just ask your team what needs to change. Listen to them and give some thought to doing what they're telling you needs to be done. These are folks that are seeing the effects of your leadership in an up front and very personal manner. Take then company back to it's heyday - when Club Car made the best golf cart in the world. Profits and employee engagement will follow.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A company that has the potential to be a good workplace, but which falls short in so many ways.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Davidson, NC

    ProsEmployees are good to work with, compent and friendly.

    ConsPoor management performance - bad follow through of promises to team members, totally inconsiderate treatment of employees - management says employees are highly valued, but actions tell a very different story.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat employees as valued resources,act with integrity and stand behind your people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Hostile and combative.

    (Former Employee)
    Mocksville, NC

    ProsI worked at Ingersoll-Rand in Mocksville, NC. I would say the pro would to be to work at a different location like Davidson. The colleagues in Davidson were mature and professionals.

    ConsThe downside to working in Mocksville, NC is the hostile and combative nature in which staff management leads the facility. If you speak up with another opinion, then you are surely questioning authority. The culture at the facility is extremely biased toward women and does not do much in the presence of complaints. "Good ole boy network" Supervisors are often patted on the back for intimidation and fear among the hourly and salary workers. Quantity is number one while Quality takes a backseat to hitting numbers.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop having meetings to discuss meetings when top management comes to visit. I assume this is to cover up and get on the same page; it is the same type of bad behavior that almost demolished Ford until Molally came on to represent a better standard in culture. If the plant manager would stop talking about all he has done and actually listen maybe he would see certain areas of opportunities. The promotion of a classism existence is present in the plant; there is only a "metaphorically speaking open door policy". If you speak up you are shunned and not looked at for promotion. If you are an agreeable manager/employee you are promoted. Sometimes it is those who are disagreeable that make the huge leaps in higher standards for Quality. Quality is just something to check off a list of to-do's for the facility and they do not take it with consideration to hitting numbers. I believe that this facility does not look at secondary metrics as a way of tracking against earned hours, but looks at scrap amounts that say nothing in a culture that promotes a "black belt mentality." No customer return metrics, no warranty metrics and the Quality Manager is a yes man that is sleeping behind the wheel. What organization would ever put the Quality Manager reporting directly to the Plant Manager??? Lean six sigma is a fad at the facility. I believe that staff management sees the lean, because they are production oriented and that is what lean is for, but what happened to the six sigma portion of the equation, you need both. I don't eve believe that the management truly knows Quality at all and cares nothing about it. The way that the facility churns the management through gives no support to sustaining good practices or accountability for when things are done to purely show numbers. FYI... stop taking the visual boards down when top management leaves and putting them back when they are there, most employees think RIEs are a joke and are losing confidence in a program that I am sure IR as a whole has invested quite a lot of money in. Also, what are the strategic plans? I was at the facility for 3 years and when strategic plans were dropped into our employee profiles, most managers had no understanding of how to align their employees with the vision/ strategic plans coming from corporate, most manager's didn't know how to implement strategic plans on a ground level and never sought opportunity to make any directive's known for front line management. It was a very confusing process of "guessing" what your manager wanted from you. I do believe that there are quite a few managers that could learn something from taking a communications class and maybe a few seminars on how to make productive employees. In a nut shell when supervisors are cussing and yelling at employees, belittling, it makes most people including myself feel as though the management represents people who are uneducated and unarticulated. So inarticulate that they know no other way but to be mean and aggressive.

    Very Bad - One of the worst workplaces I’ve ever seen - Too many politics

    (Current Employee)
    Saint Paul, MN

    ProsBeing able to work in a field and on a project that I have a degree and an interest in.

    ConsA bunch of managers sitting in meetings all day gets nothing done. The TIS management is looking for scapegoats to blame someone for their messed up project. Many bad characters. Dishonest communication.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYour dysfunctional bureaucracy isn’t working. Some of your Managers are a bunch of puppets who don’t even know what they are saying half the time. They are just posing that they are working as they are sitting in their meetings all day long. Let the professionals do their jobs without management getting in the way.

    Central Maintenance Technician (Former Employee)
    Pueblo, CO

    ProsThe people at Trane before purchased were wonderful to work for.

    ConsTrane was good ,But Ingersoll moved the operations to Monterrey Mexico although Trane has a Billions of dollar contract to replace HVAC units in our military bases. Your Tax dollars at work.....

    Advice to Senior Managementyour product brand has already suffered due to the inability to produce a quality product lots of luck with that.

    Do it their way or...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    La Crosse, WI

    ProsThey have a decent performance management system. It works well and is easily understood and processed. Pay scale and benefits within reasonable levels.

    ConsHighly inflexible. Very "processed-based," with little regard for historical perspective or doing things differently that the way they want it.
    No recognition for capabilities or past history/experience

    Advice to Senior ManagementLearn to recognize the talent you have or you will find them in the past tense. Your way is not the only way to get things done.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
