    Former Employee - Receptionist/Bindery Clerk in Brea, CA

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

    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

    Opportunities to learn and grow. Good pay and benefits. Unlimited training for motivated employees.

    Cons

    High turnover rate in salaried employees due to work life balance issues and company culture to relocate for upward mobility. Business run on a month to month basis and in functional silos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Align daily operations with long term strategic growth. Improve work life balance for performing employees.

    Pros

    Great Benefits at low cost to employees

    Cons

    HR Services, Very poorly managed, limited advancement and ineffective processes. A lot of dead weight. Management not open to new processes or suggestions for improvement. That's the way we have always done it attitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, look for their strengths and give them the tools and training they need to succeed.

    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.

    I have been working at Ingersoll-Rand full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people and resources at the plant level are amazing. There is a good strategy for change including employee engagement and standard work. Senior leadership is also great. They are true drivers of change and models of excellence.

    Cons

    While the people at the plant level are great, the corporate atmosphere is less than. The politics diminish the positive atmosphere and engagement. Turnover is high and as a result, the level of managers below the senior leadership team act in a very cut-throat and self-promoting way. It is not a very encouraging place to work. There is no genuine integrity or authenticity in the mid-level managers. Everyone is just looking out for themselves with no thought to team development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    REALLY engage with your employees. Make the open door policy real. Encourage "skip-level" engagement.

    IR is Great. Sub's are NOT- Cash Machines. IR will sell you if you don't make them money.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Appear to be employee oriented. State of the art.

    Cons

    At local level IR doesn't care what or who the plant managers are or what quality they ship. As long as it can be invoiced "let it go". It's a shame.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better educated or move on at plant levels. Senior levels need too look at the low and high subs. Ask the 5 why's. Talk to people on the floor. Middle management was threatened with our jobs if we told the truth. I left on my own accord because the moral fortitude necessary to keep the job wasn't worth it.

    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.
