    I worked at Ingersoll Rand as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of functional business areas to learn and all the employees and coworkers were warm, welcoming, and willing to train and mentor a college student (I had a two year internship during my two final years of undergrad)

    Cons

    I wasn't offered a position after I finished my internship, and frankly none of the interns in my department were offered positions either. At that time, I believe there were budget constraints that wouldn't allow those positions to be filled by the interns. To this day, each team is one person short.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow for more opportunities to train and learn other business areas besides the department we were a part of. I would have liked to shadow accounting, engineering, service, and sales.

    I have been working at Ingersoll Rand as a contractor (less than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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