    Pros

    Wide business coverage creates steady revenue. Notorious brands are the company's best assets. Opportunity to work in an international environment. Good pay rate versus peer companies. The company is sure going somewhere... but where?

    Cons

    Top down culture. Few gurus dictate the way to go. Process capability is not a common concept. Poor change management. A couple of notoriously dysfunctional functions, whch do not seem to move in the right direction, spreading cynism and hypocrisy.
    Company assessment will depend a lot on your functional and geographical area. Corporate functions and emerging Countries are the right place to be. Just browse other reviews and judge by yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You cannot buy your greatness. Use the pool of great talents within the company. Pay more attention where value get created.

    Pros

    Fellow staff were intelligent and a pleasure to work with.

    Cons

    Uncaring managers with one thing in mind.....their own future with the company not caring who is hurt on the way including taking credit for other staff members ideas & creativity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at those that you assume are doing their own jobs when in fact they are taking credit for others hard work.

    Pros

    there are great leaders and a very stable places to work. Provides wide variety of opportunities to grow.

    Cons

    work life balance is not too great. time off policies are also not great here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need the management to focus on work life balance which they are already doing but to put more focus on it. Time off policies needs to be revisited.

    Pros

    The company is big so there are many opportunities that you can move around.

    Cons

    The management is a joke. Those guys are hypocrites and they don't even try to hide it. I think most employees know about it and that's why the employees are not working hard and that's why Ingersoll Rand, though is very big, is still a screwed up company.

    One example is that the company has a strict policy to control the flight expense: only when the continuous flying time is 10 hours or more can you fly business class - basically meaning that you can't take business class for flight from US to Europe. And of course it says this policy applies to EVERY employee.

    But if you have a chance to look at the flights taken by those senior VPs: all senior VPs simply ignore this policy and fly business class even it's a domestic flight. The CEO of Ingersoll Rand China flies EVERY flight in business class even the flight hour is only one hour.
    One employee, who knows those details told me like this: 9 out of 10 executives take business class whenever they want. And the last one doesn't take business class because he has a private jet.
    Well, if the company simply tells the employees that because those guys are senior VP/executives they can take business class. That's fine. But no, these guys told employees: oh, we've got to cut cost, it's for the benefit of the company. And they think employees won't know what they do?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The top management needs to be replaced.
    The current company culture is crap.

    I worked at Ingersoll-Rand as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Casual dress and spacious office work environment. leader was great. support staff however were passive aggressive and immature in leadership styles. I was very surprised and put off by the lack of respect demonstrated towards temps.

    Cons

    No standardized training. Very hit or miss coaching. Temps don't even know what you don't know. I have never worked under such conditions. It was very apparent during training, that person was newly promoted and their uncertainty translated into being very curt and passive aggressive. Like a little kid playing boss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consistent training and onboarding if you're expecting consistent level of customer service. Don't tell temp..don't ask me anything. Or you should know that. Criticize individuals in ear shot of them. Literally one desk away. Very unprofessional, passive aggressive and unproductive leadership/ coaching style.
    When you do take initiative to be proactive then you're met with why are you doing that. Why do you need access to that info.
