    I have been working at Ingersoll-Rand full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company has some great benefits and a flexible work environment, which is nice. However, much of your ability to take advantage of the benefits will depend on your manager. Many policies are implemented at varying levels depending on management, so as long as you have a supportive manager, you can really have a great work/life balance no matter what the work load because you have the ability to work when/how you work best.

    Cons

    They tend to run super lean, which means you will be over-worked much of the time. You really have to look out for yourself. Everyone is trying to climb the corporate ladder, so be aware!

    I worked at Ingersoll-Rand

    Pros

    Career opportunities for those that are willing to be stretched.

    Cons

    IR is looking for the perfect organization to unleash growth. Growth starts with outside-in mindset...IR needs to lead with the customer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Delayer!

    Pros

    They treat their employees very well and will work with you if you need to relocate. They try to hold on to their employees. They have engagement surveys and employee appreciation days. Also, the benefits are great. You get a health savings account that they put money into if you perform certain tasks, The 401k plan is also really great and competitive.

    Cons

    They do not reprimand people who don't work as hard as others. One person in my department is constantly under where he/she should be, but nothing happens. She literally does less than half the work of most people on the team. I'd like to see them crack down more on people who aren't pulling their weight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have the metrics off your employees directly effect their salary. I have a feeling we all get pretty much around the same percentage for the annual raise. People who under-perform should not get raises. People who over preform and keep their numbers up should get a higher raise. You're sending a message where people think it's okay to slack off and let everyone else do the work because they don't have any consequences. The people who work hard realize this and feel they can't do anything about it because it will sound like complaining. It's a slippery slope, but nothing is done about it because our "team" metrics look good.

    Pros

    Fast-paced environment, great leaders, good tools, opportunities for career advancement

    Cons

    Turnover in management made it difficult to build long-term relationships and manage my own career. Ingersoll Rand Europe VERY different from IR US

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some European Executives need to understand the American concept of managing teams. A lot of micromanagement over there
