    I have been working at Ingersoll-Rand full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great people to work with, decent pay for the geographical area.

    Cons

    The wrong people are in most supervisor and management roles, even at a corporate level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Initiate employee progression programs, there are none for hourly associates. Promote people from within the company, all new engineers and managers come from outside IR.

    I have been working at Ingersoll-Rand

    Pros

    Room for upward growth if you are a high performer with a solid manager. A lot of the upward growth is determined by your manager and who you impress.

    Cons

    Company is going through an extremely difficult transition period. Tough hours, a lot of confusion for probably the next year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep trying to promote the right people, and look internally for promotions.

    I worked at Ingersoll-Rand full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Individual people very good to work with. Pay decent.

    Cons

    Management does not allow any questioning. La Crosse is poorly run and inflexible. Working atmosphere for salaried people is one of fear. Layoffs every few weeks so no one knows whether they will have a job the next day. Constant reorganization. Company no longer uses data to make decisions. It's all done by how they feel it should be. .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start using data again for decisions. No more management on the fly.

    Pros

    Give you opportunities through their rotational program

    Cons

    Once you roll of program there is no follow up early talent development.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Identify your young talent and do all you can to keep it otherwise they will continue to leave at a high rate and you will have wasted all you developed in them.
