    I used to Love working for my company until IR bought it. There is even less communication than there used to be. Quality is a joke. Supervisors don't have ANY clue on how to interact with employees without berating or belittling them.

    Pros

    The paycheck is great, especially if there are two in the household with jobs.

    Cons

    Everything else is just stressor after stressor. Quality is a big deal in an all employee meeting, until the end of the meeting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually listen to hourly employees. Your management team is blowing smoke up your rear. You have sexist and racist supervisors that get shuffles around from department to department instead of getting rid of them.

    Provide a more tier approach to vacation. Takes way too long to reach 4 week threshold.

    Pros

    Great opportunities for career growth throughout the company. The company cares a great deal about their employees and long term growth and retention. Health conscience culture.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be difficult, depending on the assignment. IT organization could use improvement, as tools offered to do business are not best in class.

    I have been working at Ingersoll-Rand full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ethics and Values are not just words, the great majority of people seem to be living by them. Pay and benefits are good. There is an effort to give employees a chance to succeed. Many locations to choose from and a variety of work options.

    Cons

    Work life balance is not understood. To excel, you rarely can actually leave work behind for a day or week (or even night). There is this extreme focus on headcount versus achieving goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to the "what's right" angel on your shoulder. She/He is doing a good job of keeping you on the right path. Be open to breaking down "the way we have always done it". Take some risks to be a different kind of company. We have the horsepower to make it happen.

    I have been working at Ingersoll-Rand full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for growth and advancement in the company. Great Benefits (Medical, Dental, Vision, Tuition reimbursement) Management is supportive of professional development. Work can be demanding, but not unreasonable. Depending on your position/department, there are opportunities to work from home when needed, helping to maintain work/life balance.

    Cons

    Large company can sometimes leave you feeling like you are a small fish in a big pond. Career development falls on the individual to take the initiative. If you don't move jobs every few years, you may be judged negatively or perceived as lacking ambition.

    Pros

    Flexibility, stability, and plenty of avenues for lateral transfer.

    Cons

    Lack of growth opportunity for EHS professionals. Frequent changes in the upper echelons tends to filter confusion on direction to the lower echelons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay on target and focus on the basics, don't try to reinvent the wheel.
