    I have been working at Allegion full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Large, global company with flexible positions if you ask. Lots of work, definitely not boring. Opportunity to get involved in committees, community projects.

    Cons

    You have to make the effort to be seen/heard. Most managers assume that you are a grown-up and do not need micromanaged but someone who prefers lots of feedback may not get that here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work on simplifying the vision. Continue to focus on what we are awesome at. Either jump in on a few riskier ideas or scrap them, don't continue to sit on the fence about new tech projects too long.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits And lots of overtime

    Cons

    A lot of overtime, Management needs a lot of work lake of communication. No advancement if you not in a "group"!

    Start treating your employees better, promote from within and not because of friends.

    I have been working at Allegion full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Good pay Okay vacation Hours

    Cons

    No room for improvement. I've expressed on several occasions that I would like to move up within the company and have been given every excuse in the book on why they won't promote me. The management there now are a loss cause and barely have a clue with what's going on and how to handle their employees.

    Advice to Management

    When someone who has potential to grow and succeed comes to you and expresses interest in growing with the company, help guide them and mold them instead of pushing them away.

    Pros

    Nice Area and Nice People to work with

    Cons

    Must play the politics or you will be left out. So many people focused on moving up at all cost. Once you go to the factories and away from corporate, you will find a much better company with really great people. Corporate culture is not good.

    Pros

    Pretty good benifits and the pay but it doesnt matter if the bad outweighs the good.

    Cons

    Management, as said before,if you start recieving FMLA and are no longer of value to them,they will find a reason to let you go( not a very sympathetic or compassionate Co.

    Advice to Management

    Act like management and treat people with respect, what goes for one should go for all!

    Pros

    Great benefits, caring managers and brilliant coworkers.

    Cons

    Learning Curve, somewhat noisy work space

    Advice to Management

    Lower and Mid-Level managers that are in the engineering side of the business are amazing. You can tell they care about the well-being and success of their employees. If they aren't being recognized, they should be.

    I worked at Allegion full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Unlimited vacation and the ability to be empowered to make decisions are at the top of the list. 80% of the employees are great and wonderful to work with. Travel seems to be unlimited and the pay is above average.

    Cons

    HR runs the business. If you don't agree with HR, be wary. Employee turnover in Carmel is extremely high and people are thrown under the bus all the time. Rules change depending on who you are and who you are connected to.

    Advice to Management

    Growth of being truly global, strategic and cost effective is being sacrificed because of the inability to change and follow processes.
