    I have been working at Ingersoll Rand full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, excellent work/life balance options. Pay is pretty good.

    Cons

    WAY too many people with POOR leadership skills in leadership positions. Still very much a "good 'ol boy" environment in the corporate office in Davidson, NC. Nepotism is commonplace. Lack of diversity in upper management, all the executives look alike, not one person of color.

    Advice to Management

    Place the most qualified person in a leadership position instead of the person you go to lunch with or play golf with or live next door to.

    Pros

    Good experience to apply to your next job somewhere else.

    Cons

    Senior management disconnected from rank-and-file. Lack of accountability, especially for the "progressive, inclusive and diverse". A once great company that helped build American is now a laboratory for social experiments. Employees questioning approach "disappear" (quietly fired).

    Advice to Management

    Focus on products, profits, and shareholder return. Hold managers accountable for poor judgement, regardless of their race, gender, orientation, etc.

    I worked at Ingersoll Rand full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits and compensation was competitive for the area

    Cons

    There was intense pressure to report & make the numbers no matter what. Management was intimidating and threatening, especially if you questioned the "questionable" and during annual employee surveys. The turnover is high and costantly training new staff. HR was aligned solely with management, so you had no voice or access to support.

    Advice to Management

    It's a shame IR corporate allows the existing Club Car leadership to behave as it does. So many good people have left due to mistreatment, but it seems as long as the "whatever it takes" approach gets the finacial results, morale, culture and retention are not valued.

    Cons

    Assemblers do so many jobs, even on the line & are expected to keep up with demands. Impossible

    I worked at Ingersoll Rand full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Stable company, many divisions, ease of transfer between positions, decent benefits and 401K. Great tuition reimbursement and in house training (IR University).

    Cons

    I can only speak for the Atlanta office.
    - Many promotions through the Atlanta market were based on the buddy system
    - Very weak system to develop career paths for long term employees
    - Bad experience with a Service level manager (MHG).
    - Corporate does very little to present a hostile work environment.
    - Conflict resolution assistance through HR is slim to none without contacting corporate.
    - Promotions from within are discouraged

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people in order to retain your long term, highly skilled talent. Develop career path plans for transition into higher positions within the company.

    I worked at Ingersoll Rand as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a contract employee you get paid weekly

    Cons

    No accountability, Depending on the department you are constantly working 10 hour shifts. After a year as a contractor they will make up some excuse to fire you.

    Advice to Management

    Hold people accountable for their mistakes across the board. Quit letting supervisors and team leaders play favorites. When you actually have an employee who works and isn't lazy keep them. I'm sorry I'm a northern girl and know how to work so that I'm done with my work sooner than the southern people who are lazy. Then your supervisor doesn't like that you have nothing to do.

    Pros

    None that I can think of

    Cons

    Huge company that discriminates and allows bullying and makes horrible jokes about peoples sexualality. Instead of fixing issues they would rather make jokes about the situation

    Advice to Management

    Learn to manage. HR Nightmares!!!

    I have been working at Ingersoll Rand full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Financial stability, people I work with

    Cons

    No development, no growth, no opportunities for growth in regards to diversity, leadership

    Advice to Management

    I feel that there should be changes made in regards to leadership within this company. There is no trust between employees and leadership.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are good
    Campus is beautiful
    Lots of great people to work with in the middle levels, but they are quickly getting beaten down .

    Cons

    Treats people with little respect. Strategy is always short sighted and operates by the concept of constant chaos.

    Their definition of work/life balance is that life = work at all times.

    I've seen people criticized for things like taking a lunch during a 12+ hour work day or even needing to leave for a family emergency when it's inconvenient for the company at the given time.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the way your employees are being treated vs. letting numbers on paper tell you everything is ok.
