I worked at Ingersoll-Rand full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Great opportunities for international projects
- Met incredibly talented and dedicated people from all over the world
- Awesome project managers
- Great opportunity to work on giant projects and cross cultural teams

Cons

- Most jobs are 40+, that is just the norm
- Many job are around the clock meetings and accommodation is expected
- Little to no interaction or visibility of upper level management. They do not manage by walking around.
- Be careful with benefits. They are great while you are there, but your loss when you leave and paying back tuition stinks. Use every dollar in your HSA/FSA account because they will definitely keep it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- It is hard to follow a leader that you only know from the stage. Get out an meet your people. Especially Executive team. Why be so isolated from the people who deliver on your promises?

    Club Car has the lowest morale of anywhere I've ever worked in my life

    Current Employee - Manager in Augusta, GA (US)
    Current Employee - Manager in Augusta, GA (US)

    I have been working at Ingersoll-Rand full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Club Car Pros: If you want to live in Augusta GA, you can work for Club Car instead of making the move to Atlanta. While there, you will appreciate the positive leadership you saw from senior managers at many of the other places you've worked before. You will also appreciate the work life balance you enjoyed before you started working mandatory Saturdays at Club Car.

    Cons

    Having to watch a once-proud company after it's been nickel-&-dimed" to the point of death.
    Hourly workers are sent home frequently w/out pay.
    Salaried workers are consistently working unpaid overtime because they don't have the tools or the resources to do their jobs well.
    The only thing that gets done in meetings is back-stabbing and blame-game sabotage.
    People are scared of senior managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop focusing on making the product cheaper - it's only resulted in more and more customer complaints and added headaches as staff attempts to react without spending any money to fix problems. Don't just ask your team what needs to change. Listen to them and give some thought to doing what they're telling you needs to be done. These are folks that are seeing the effects of your leadership in an up front and very personal manner. Take then company back to it's heyday - when Club Car made the best golf cart in the world. Profits and employee engagement will follow.

    Horrible Sector Leadership

    Current Employee - Finance in Davidson, NC (US)

    I have been working at Ingersoll-Rand full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people in the field. Field associates really care about the customer and doing what is right. There are still a few Trane people left that know what they are doing and care.

    Cons

    Senior sector leadership is completely out of touch with reality and frankly over their heads. Their idea of long range planning is next quarter. The sector is totally reactive and changes direction continuously. If we had a bad month (relative to a stretch forecast) then we start laying people off. You will never hear the work customer mentioned at that level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think longer term than next month or next quarter. Constant reorganizations and reductions in force are counter-productive.
