    Ingersoll Rand

    Pension Analyst (Former Employee) Davidson, NC

    ProsGreat Benefits at low cost to employees

    ConsHR Services, Very poorly managed, limited advancement and ineffective processes. A lot of dead weight. Management not open to new processes or suggestions for improvement. That's the way we have always done it attitude.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees, look for their strengths and give them the tools and training they need to succeed.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    IR is Great. Sub's are NOT- Cash Machines. IR will sell you if you don't make them money.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGood benefits. Appear to be employee oriented. State of the art.

    ConsAt local level IR doesn't care what or who the plant managers are or what quality they ship. As long as it can be invoiced "let it go". It's a shame.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet better educated or move on at plant levels. Senior levels need too look at the low and high subs. Ask the 5 why's. Talk to people on the floor. Middle management was threatened with our jobs if we told the truth. I left on my own accord because the moral fortitude necessary to keep the job wasn't worth it.

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

    Too Much Management

    Sales Account Manager (Former Employee) Nashville, TN

    ProsVery good benefits, some good training programs

    ConsNot much of a future if you don't have a degree or if you're getting to middle age

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't forget the people who have helped build the company, drop a couple of levels of management

    The last seven years have been full of mismanagement.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat people to work with, decent pay for the geographical area.

    ConsThe wrong people are in most supervisor and management roles, even at a corporate level.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInitiate employee progression programs, there are none for hourly associates. Promote people from within the company, all new engineers and managers come from outside IR.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Decent place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe benefits. Pay is below average but not terrible

    ConsVery difficult to advance. Rather than removing poor employees, they are moved to other groups in the organization at the same level. So ambitious employees have no room for growth. They hire employees for roles they have experience in, no matter how poorly they've performed previously, rather than giving highly motivated individuals a chance.

    Trane was a good company until they were purchased by Ingersoll Rand.

    Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsThe people that I worked with.

    ConsConstant reorganization. Senior management does not have a clear vision for the future, earning distrust from the employees. Employees are constantly waiting for the next shoe to fall; a toxic place to work. Decisions are made without all the necessary information; check the box to just get it done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou say employees are your most value asset, yet you don't treat them that way; walk the talk. Get a clue . . . employees have no confidence or trust in your leadership.

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

    Corp Supply Chain - difficult and stressfull environment

    Commodity Management (Former Employee) Davidson, NC

    Prosgood cadre of conscientious people who have been there for a while who care about the product and the customer experience. Profitable company

    ConsEmphasis on price reductions compromises quality and credibility with suppliers and has sharply increased warranty issues. Have to have come from GE to get ahead. Prefer yes men over experienced professionals. Most decisions based on what's good for this quarter, with no consideration for long term impact.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your customers and suppliers. They feel the effect of "management to targets, no matter what the consequences"

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great pay poor experience

    Human Resources Sphere (Former Employee) Davidson, NC

    ProsProfitable company, flexible work at home when needed, many nice people.

    ConsMake money in spite of themselves. Major lack in standard policies and procedures, numerous functional silos and opposing goals

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to people in the mid levels, invest in common sense, respect opinions

    Bad pay, No significant raises possible, Excessive Mandatory overtime. Stepping stone to a better place to work

    Electrician (Former Employee) Fort Smith, AR

    ProsGenerous vacation policy only If over 30, unable to think of any other positive attributes.

    ConsUnfriendly work environment, unless you make friends with the supervisor or are a relative.
    Incompetency is overlooked and tolerated and when pointed out, retaliation.
    Seniority not valued

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet in touch with the people on the floor, its not as the numbers you have been given.

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

    Pittsburgh PA Service Department is great as long as you are a favored golden boy.

    Service Manager (Current Employee) Pittsburgh, PA

    ProsWonderful co-workers and fantastic customers.
    Great work locations.

    ConsDistrict Management relies on personal friendships and word of mouth from other employees rather than exploring for true facts. If someone does not like a co-worker and they have the managements ear, that employee is gone.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPractice what you preach. Gather TRUE facts and make personal decisions based on fact, not what is heard.

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