      Be leery if you are a young women or young talent!

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      -the benefits are good and the benefits team is extremely competent and accommodating -culture is friendly, you will find some really kind people -global company -fair pay (IF you are coming from outside the company)

      Cons

      -Lots of favoritism, extremely bureaucratic -LOTS OF MICROAGRESSIONS against young workers and young women in particular. I experienced multiple instances of gaslighting from management and was deliberately not given promotions despite above and beyond performance. Young women in particular were expected to act like secretaries and unfortunately, the worst perpetuators of this are some of the women in leadership. -Good ol' boys club mentality. -Boring/ no creativity - status quo is rewarded while continuous improvement and performance is not. This was evidenced by multiple layoffs in 2020 in which high performers were let go and favorites within the company were chosen to take their spots. -Poor response to Covid- 19 - company ignored stay at home mandates and intimidated workers to come into the office at the start of Covid-19. Leadership chose to remain ignorant and made a conscious effort to not be proactive, requiring new hires to come into the office for in person orientation, despite local and CDC recommendations. -Not inclusive - extremely conservative culture (this could be a pro or con for you). As a young progressive, I stuck out like sore thumb and always felt extremely uncomfortable at the company.

      Stable but boring

      Pros

      Stable company. Some people have literally been around the company for 50 years. (For the older brands.) There are never any big surprises Good pay. Not the best around, but definitely not the worst. Good benefits.

      Cons

      The thing is, the type of people that get rewarded the most at Allegion are those who keep doing the same thing. In some ways, I get it. It’s a conservative company. Allegion doesn’t take big (or any) risks. They don’t ever want to be the first or even second to try something new. They won’t rock the ship. And so people who fall into line and just do their routine work and do it well are rewarded. I’ve seen so many really good innovators come and go in under a year because they wanted to try new ideas, push the envelope, or challenge the status quo. That doesn’t go over well here. While this doesn’t bode well for the company in the long term (you can’t ever achieve great success if your main goal is to just be safe), it is great for someone who doesn’t want to make their work their whole life. Don’t want work hard and nights and weekends? Don’t want to kill yourself thinking of the next big idea? don’t want to strain yourself trying to be innovative? Come here. As long as you’re crossing things off your to do list and it’s decent quality, you’ll have a job forever here. For better or worse. Also, they criminally underfund the most important things. We have just a single person working on employee experience — for 11,000 employees. (Not kidding. She’s a department of 1.) We had a pretty decent internal innovation contest that was defunded three years ago and there’s no talk of brining it back, even so you hear leadership complain all the time that we need more innovation.

      Pros

      Great benefits, good working environment, remote / hybrid options, compensation, bonus at certain levels, company has great cash flow

      Cons

      Not very diverse, "All boys club" is prevalent in the leadership whether is in manufacturing or non-manufacturing. There is still unspoken expectation that Men are the leaders and women are the doers.

      Pros

      The Company offers the BEST Health Care, Vision, Dental plans that are very little costs to her employees. 401K matched up to 6%. As a full time salary employee, you will get "unlimited" PTO the minutes you are hired. For hourly, 2 weeks on the second year. I have been here 3 years + and I know that every year every single one of us gets a review. You are always recognized and rewarded for doing good job. Training, promotions are also parts of the benefits for working here You get to utilize your full potentials, the sky the limit . All co-workers are so nice and friendly here at this facility and my bosses, they are the bests of the bests that I ever have in my 35 yr career. Why didn't they find me sooner????

      Cons

      I wish I could rate this Company more than 5 stars!!!
