    Pros

    Brand names, well engineered product

    Cons

    Could there possibly be more VP's than workers? Only politicians and good ole' boys get promoted. The rest get pointed at by the wavering 'leadership'. Monthly management at its finest.

    I have been working at Ingersoll Rand full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Worked here for 10 years now at the time of this writing and has been the best company I have ever worked for. They care a great deal about their employees and offer many great benefits.

    Cons

    As with any company they have their up and down periods and at times will need to lay people off. Doing so spreads the work load across fewer people and can cause stress levels to go up.

    Advice to Management

    This goes along with the cons above. Layoffs are unfortunately a necessary part of running a business but not having backup personal for many employees for an extended period of time could be a bad thing. You never know what will happen in an employee's life that could cause them to no longer be able to work at the company, wheather it is having to move due to family or a life changing event. Not having a backup could harm company project goals.

    Pros

    Amazing corporate culture and conducive environment for success. Great location and campus on Lake Norman. Autonomy to make decisions.

    Cons

    It's a traditional corporate setting with cubicles. Very quiet and depending on your personality you have as little or much interaction with coworkers as you want.

    Advice to Management

    The people are very friendly, highly motivated, and easy to get along with. Great atmosphere for management and cooperation.

    I have been working at Ingersoll Rand full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great culture, most helpful people, open culture. Good and regular interaction with senior management instills faith and direction. Good work life balance. Both work and fun happens. Good HR practices. Supports learning culture. Premium brand so high end technology in HVAC.

    Cons

    A premium brand- so the question 'what's next?' needs to be answered. Which future technology the company intends to capitalize is somewhat unclear. The urgency to outpace the market seems slightly slow. Most products are a great hit, but few are either too advanced or complicated, thus sales picture seems unclear.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the engineers in synch with our performance in market.

    I worked at Ingersoll Rand full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, opportunity to grow within the company, okay time off depending on how long you've been employed, paid holidays.

    Cons

    Favoritism, "good ol boy" system, HR department basically has no soul. Wouldn't go by the employee handbook they pushed on the employees unless it benefited them. No bonuses. Once you get on upper managements bad said, or don't bow down to them, they go out of their way to find a reason to fire you. Always head hunting somebody. Upper management talks about employees to each other. Doesn't treat everybody the same and loves to give employees the run-around about important things.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everybody the same. Seperate work life from home life, and keep your friends your friends outside of work hours. Actually act like you have a soul.

    Pros

    Wonderful executive leadership. Mike Lamach is awesome! Amazing how much we see senior leaders on the production floor. They really get lean and are consistent in their message of creating a lean culture. Lots of focus on visual management, problem solving and coaching vs. directing.

    Cons

    Lots of middle management who are faking OPEX. You will have to move your family around some as you progress in your career (this is fair as it's a global company and spread all over).

    Advice to Management

    Too many financial and sales managers trying to climb a ladder and run everything and build an empire vs. just doing their jobs. Need more middle managers with operations and / or engineering experience in leadership.

    I have been working at Ingersoll Rand (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a strong international and well established company. The products are quality and superior to most on the market. Safety to all employees and customers is top priority. Pay is great along with benefits.

    Cons

    The management structure can be abnormal to most. The manager you work with most often may not be your direct supervisor who may not be in the same city or state but they provide feedback to your supervisor on your performance. I find this a poor way to manage and lead a team, especially if the direct supervisor does not interact with their reports face to face on a frequent basis.
