Pros

Indy is very nice city. Lots of wireless technology being implemented into security systems makes this an interesting job.

Cons

HQ based out of Ireland so ya just never know what they are really thinking about doing with this segment.

    I worked at Ingersoll-Rand Security Technologies full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Pleasanton ETC (Electronic Technologies Corp, a nationwide security installer that IR purchased) personnel were fantastic. There was good pay and benefits (actually from Labor Union); reasonable bosses.

    Cons

    Not always enough work in the pipeline; unknown since the sale of the Security Technologies arm to a defense contractor in 2011 (Kratos). Excessive paperwork. Not recycle/sustainability savvy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a more hands-off, trusting attitude! More team-building between labor and management folks.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits
    People
    Opportunities for career advancement

    Cons

    Cutbacks and hiring freezes
    • Difficult to achieve a work / life balance. The inability to replace people requires the work to be distributed to those who are left (particularly those considered high performers). Most salaried individuals are working 50-80 hour weeks.
    • In most areas, talented and highly competent individuals are rendered ineffective due to increased responsibilities. They are simply spread too thin.

    Lack of training
    Outdated / ineffective business operating systems – updates/changes are nearly impossible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IR is full of dedicated and talented employees who are stretched too thin to be effective. Review the impact of cutbacks/hiring freezes to determine the true cost of not replacing employees.
