    Pros

    It's a very diverse environment with people, processes and products of a great variety. An excellent place to learn how things are made, how different functions work together towards a common objective. The things you will learn here you may not find in B-school or at any other single employer. Very stable company, has been around for 100+ years and continues to make changes to it's product portfolio to prepare to remain in business for the next 100+ years.

    Cons

    Compensation for entry - mid management positions is avg or below avg compared to peers.
    Advancement opportunities are less driven by management and more driven by the individual.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership is very experienced and qualified. Recently some major changes have been taking place so communicating to the masses and keeping the team motivated is going to be key.

    Pros

    Great Education Reimbursement, and Ingersoll Rand University is awesome

    Cons

    Trane used to a GREAT company to work for, it was customer and employee focused. They were increasing employee benefits when other companies were cutting them, and increasing market share at the same time. Then Ingersoll Rand bought Trane and the focus immediately went from the customer and the employee to the stock price. Now every decision is based upon what is going to give the stock a short term gain.
    The result is a dysfunctional management system where millions are wasted on chasing dimes. It is very frustrating for a Manufacturing Engineer ( and most everyone else who does not get a bonus based on stock price) to see data driven, long term improvement based decision making replaced with flavor of the week (sometimes flavor of the day) decisions. There is a reason you losing market share.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IR University is very well stocked with Leadership Courses, you could really learn by taking some of them. Also you need to visit the plants and listen to more than the plant managers and their flunkies, spend time with the engineers and the line workers to get an idea of what is really going on. There is a reason why you have to sell Hussman for losing so much money, and why the senior engineers are leaving Trane for your competition in droves. Also just because you can send plants and jobs to Mexico does not mean it is a good business decision. There is a reason you are losing market share.
