    Pros

    Vacation time is technically unlimited based on manager's discretion. It's location is great being in Colorado Springs. Love the city.

    Cons

    Very tenured plant. I thought would be a good thing but now I am seeing that all of the tenured people stick together, stand up for each other, and tend to shut down any new people.

    Advice to Management

    Need to develop young and new people better. Don't allow there to be double standards for manager's family members.

    Pros

    Nothing good to say about this place. They do not promote those who have received higher education. If you're an educated person, run far away from this place.

    Unqualified upper management who spend more time causing problems than fixing problems.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to lead.

    I have been working at Allegion full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good people
    Few peer drama
    Casual dress
    Flexible schedule
    Unlimited Paid Time Off

    Cons

    Chaotic, leadership lacks vision or the communication of it, not people focused, most are completely overworked and burning out, unlimited time off means nothing if you got too much on your plate to take time off, constant stress, very frustrating process (if there is one), not truly customer focused, too many chiefs, inverted triangle. Huge disparity of workload.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on customers and people and profits will come. PRIORITIZE. You are creating a culture of mediocrity by continually wanting more. Matrix organizations only work with superb communication and execution. What is your core strength and have you invested in it lately? Focus on retention and employee development. LISTEN . Your employees will tell you exactly what is not working. If things do not change, it will only be a matter of time before enough good employees leave and then watch what it will do to your profits. No matter how smart replacements may be, they can not replace years worth of experience in this industry.

    Pros

    Great honest people to work with, Cafeteria on site, Opportunities to advance, heavy workload of overtime

    Cons

    Poor communication in all aspects, poor planning, lacks structure, lacks accountability, chaos everyday trying to produce products on time to customers and behind on promises daily.

    Advice to Management

    Too many meetings not enough results. Complete projects that are rolled out and improve morale between employees on the floor and those in the offices. Countless great employees I have worked with are leaving due to these reasons.

    Pros

    The sales team is the driving force behind Allegion

    Cons

    Only if Senior / Executive Management would listen to Sales force, the companies stock trade could be double.

    Advice to Management

    Quite hiring a plethora of Accountant backgrounds as Senior / Executive Sales leadership. These Accountant type mentalities do not and never will understand sales. Also a message to Management.. follow your own values. Lead by example
