    Pros

    Good paying company. Good management from top with lean methodolgy.

    Cons

    However, allot of talk on local level not adressessing machine down time. There were too many work arounds and putting out fires instead of investing in maintenance supervisor and collecting data on down time and a preventitive maintenance program.

    Advice to Management

    If you are going to invest in Lean invest in machine down time and get rid of of apathy in maintenance department.

    Pros

    The coworkers were some of the best I know. All are hard-working, knowledgeable, and ready to help. The company keeps employees informed through regular newsletters, town-hall meetings, and miscellaneous events. The company has branches throughout the country, so if you're hired, you can move to a new location and still maintain your years of service. Best of all, you can leave your work when you go home for the night.

    Cons

    In the year I've worked here, there's a slightly culture of distrust of senior management. Firing without warning is common for contract workers. Many persons I knew left work on Friday to get a phone call that night that they didn't have a job Monday. Even the best contract workers aren't hired. I remember one day seeing several members of the IT team taking cleaning out their desks because they'd been told shortly before that their contracts weren't being extended despite the many nuances of Ingersoll-Rand's IT team. The company has high expectations of all workers leading many to work closer to 45 hours per week during non-peak months. Corporate seems to care heavily about metrics and has lead to a revolving door of contract workers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the skilled contract workers when their terms expire. Each mistake can cost the company hundreds of dollars. It takes a couple of months before workers are fully trained. Don't save money on benefits when you pay several times that much to process returns or concessions to customers for poorly processed orders.

    Pros

    Great coworkers intelligent and friendly.

    Cons

    Very negative atmosphere in finance, always looking to blame. Unprofessional, talk derogatory about other managers and all associates. The first day I moved my family to NC he said "no one would care if I got fired".

    Advice to Management

    You have some really great people, but management needs work.

    Pros

    Casual dress and spacious office work environment. leader was great. support staff however were passive aggressive and immature in leadership styles. I was very surprised and put off by the lack of respect demonstrated towards temps.

    Cons

    No standardized training. Very hit or miss coaching. Temps don't even know what you don't know. I have never worked under such conditions. It was very apparent during training, that person was newly promoted and their uncertainty translated into being very curt and passive aggressive. Like a little kid playing boss.

    Advice to Management

    Consistent training and onboarding if you're expecting consistent level of customer service. Don't tell temp..don't ask me anything. Or you should know that. Criticize individuals in ear shot of them. Literally one desk away. Very unprofessional, passive aggressive and unproductive leadership/ coaching style.
    When you do take initiative to be proactive then you're met with why are you doing that. Why do you need access to that info.

    Pros

    Great product, leader in the industry. Not much else to be honest.

    Cons

    Training is awful; people are training you who haven't done the job themselves in years. Company doesn't value lower level employees, even middle-level management is not respected. The top of IR runs everything, albeit not very effectively - rate of retention should be given more attention. There is no guidance given for how you can work your way up - no clear guidelines for what you have to do to get a promotion, raises are ambiguous, performance reviews are arbitrary. Work-life balance is fine, but good luck ever moving up in this company. It's all about the cronies at the top and who they're connected with.

    Advice to Management

    Value the employee contribution from ALL LEVELS of the company. Better tactics for promoting from within besides who knows who.

    Pros

    Great Benefits at low cost to employees

    Cons

    HR 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 Management

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

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    At 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 Management

    Get 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.
