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

    Pros

    You will work lots of overtime

    Cons

    Product categories are constantly changing and verifying correctness of quotes versus orders is close to impossible when internal departments cannot agree upon and set a solid set of standards to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Get a handle on what you are trying to achieve then clue in your employees.

    Pros

    Great next generation of new leadership rising. Laid back environment. Good culture overall.

    Cons

    I work in IT and its a flaming mess. Communication is terrible and it does not appear that people know what they're doing. Also seems not everyone is particularly honest.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better people, establish a more honest culture, with more accountability. Also, too many remote workers.

    Pros

    Executive leadership steering company in a positive direction since Allegion debuted in late 2013.

    Cons

    Fiscally conservative -- including salary. Insurance has gone downhill in recent years but I don't think this company is unique in that regard.

    Advice to Management

    Continue living the values and following the current trajectory.

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Bonus / Compensation
    People focus

    Cons

    Being over run by politics
    Quickly losing focus on people
    Immature process

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the roots that made Allegion known as one of the best employers to work for. Good people are leaving every day. The fast pace is exciting however process immaturity creates unrealistic targets and expectations.

    Pros

    Small company, great seasoned workers who are willing to teach, great place for hands-on learning on manufacturing, benefits

    Cons

    No possibility for career development even though a whole lot of time is spent on employee engagement, political bias amongst management, not a humble management, vicious cycle of repeated projects to address same old manufacturing issues, not open to creative ideas, frustrated employees and workers, there is constant flow of new/ temporary workers, lack of adequate training, lack of employee appreciation even though there are a lot of hard working people in the company, horrible human resource management and no emphasis on work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the smart people in your company, give credit to engineers, team leaders and workers especially the ones who dedicate day and night for company success, stay away from politics and do not play favoritism, retain the good engineers, help create ways for career progression, improve HR management.

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Allegion full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - relaxed office
    - casual dress code
    - unlimited PTO

    Cons

    Leadership has no plans to get what they want. They come up with targets and then expect the execution to be pushed from the bottom up. Talented people are leaving everyday, from leadership roles to entry level positions. There are so many politics at play and HR does nothing to reprimand those who are killing the culture. 2 years ago I would have recommended everyone I know to work there and now I am helping my friends that still do find other jobs. This place is taking on water, and it's only a matter of time before the profits sink just like the culture already has begun.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the valuable employees before none are left. Recommit to caring about the culture. Unlimited PTO does not make up for holding your staff accountable for unrealistic targets that you came up with no plan to execute. Spend less time talking and more time doing, and your staff will follow suit. Pay attention, the culture is quickly becoming incredibly negative and toxic and once it reaches a certain point, there's nothing you can do.
