    Pros

    The company has wonderful benefits and opportunities. The VP's are focused on improving systems and really care about the company's future. The tone at the top is positive.

    Cons

    Middle management has free reign over their employees; Micromanaging, incompetent, and ineffective. It's the luck of the draw as to whether you are supervised by an effective and qualified one. Upper management is remote and has little interaction with employees. Complaints to HR are ignored.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Vet middle managers more effectively. Interact with subordinates and gauge their perspective on whether they are being utilized effectively. Supervise middle managers on qualifications and take warnings to HR more seriously when complaints are voiced.

    Pros

    Excellent pay, great atmosphere, friendly staff, wonderful benefits.

    Cons

    I was hired on at a call center through a temp agency. The temp agency set up an interview for me with Trane (a subsidiary of Ingersoll-Rand) and I went in and it was an odd interview. I wasn't really told what the position even was and was really only asked about 7 behavioral questions before being sent on my way. I was later offered the job, took it, and was excited to begin work! I was told during training that I had been subjected to an "interview blitz" meaning that the job details were not given to us for a specific reason-what reason I don't know. I was told from the get go training would be difficult and take 6 weeks but I was ready. After the 6 weeks management would evaluate you and help you if you were not on the level you needed to be on. After your contract was up you would either be offered the job or terminated. Training was going well, I was doing excellent and grasping the material. I answered any question I was given correctly and quickly and did not require time to think about it. I did not enjoy the rapid fire questions but still I was doing well. I left work at 4 on Friday after my first week and got a call 10mins later from my temp agency stating I'd been terminated. For no reason. I asked why and the recruiter stated he received and email 30mins prior (so before I even left the building) that I was not keeping up in the classroom. The recruiter was very confused because he said this had only ever happened one time during his many experiences working with Trane and it had been a mistake. He said he would call on Monday to get more in depth feedback and to make sure it was not a mistake but told me not to go back in on Monday just in case. I was later called and told that Trane's management team would absolutely provide no more feedback and not give a solid reason for my termination. During training the group I was in was told that we were the biggest group ever to be trained and we were larger by 2 extra people. I'm assuming Trane hired too many of us and I was terminated to cut costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't waste time hiring more people than you need only to terminate them a week into the job. Also refrain from telling these people they're going to work their full 90 day contract but then terminate them anyway.

    Pros

    Working at Trane/ Ingersoll Rand was a great learning experience. I learned a lot during my time there, and I'm grateful for that. I had a wonderful relationship with just everyone that worked there. Most of the people were so good to work with.

    Cons

    The other 5% were not so good. Kind of ruined the experience for me dealing with some of the management as well as some of the hourly associates. That is what ultimately made me to decide to leave. I still miss a great deal of people there... But I'm glad I'm gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look within your organization to promote. Truly appreciate your employees.

    Pros

    Everything was very organized, and the person who trained me was very friendly. This was only a temporary position for me, and I had a easy time learning the ins and outs of the company.

    Cons

    The warehouse was almost too big, with way too many employees for a receptions to keep track of in just a temporary position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The training was great and I learned a lot from working at this company. I was in my very early twenties, and looking back, I learned quite a bit to get me ready for future employment.

    Pros

    Free company coffee mugs and notepads. There are no other pros

    Cons

    Think again if you would like to work here!!!I am an employee at the Davidson location. If your looking for development and growth this is not the place for you. Management is clueless and spends 95% of their time in pointless meetings. If you enjoy nepotism, promotions of non qualified candidates, being underpaid this is the place for you. As far as pay if your not seeking upper management positions get the salary you want because you will be nickled and dimed thereafter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be competitive with salaries that are not in upper management. Customers are important but so are the employees. Understanding that you can't make every employee happy but if a large majority of your employees are not being developed, paid below the salary range, and unhappy Ingersoll rand will always lose great employees to companies that are thriving and willing to pay them what they are worth.
