    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.
