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.

    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.

    Pros

    IR is a great company having very ethical business approach. CEO, Senior leadership & Sector leadership is really competent. Excellent talent development infrastructure & programs. Handsome salaries and other benefits.

    Cons

    Weak & unsupportive regional leadership. Communication gap exists between regional leadership and low, medium grade employees. You need a godfather to grow as too much favorism exists. Slow & indecisive decision making. Confused between Indian & western business polices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Favorism must be eradicated from the company. Need to shuffle some regional leaders.
