    I used to Love working for my company until IR bought it. There is even less communication than there used to be. Quality is a joke. Supervisors don't have ANY clue on how to interact with employees without berating or belittling them.

    Pros

    The paycheck is great, especially if there are two in the household with jobs.

    Cons

    Everything else is just stressor after stressor. Quality is a big deal in an all employee meeting, until the end of the meeting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually listen to hourly employees. Your management team is blowing smoke up your rear. You have sexist and racist supervisors that get shuffles around from department to department instead of getting rid of them.

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

    Pros

    Company has some great benefits and a flexible work environment, which is nice. However, much of your ability to take advantage of the benefits will depend on your manager. Many policies are implemented at varying levels depending on management, so as long as you have a supportive manager, you can really have a great work/life balance no matter what the work load because you have the ability to work when/how you work best.

    Cons

    They tend to run super lean, which means you will be over-worked much of the time. You really have to look out for yourself. Everyone is trying to climb the corporate ladder, so be aware!

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

    Pros

    Benefits unmatched by the competition. Plenty of overtime if you like it. Climate controlled facility.

    Cons

    Direction of their future unknown. Lack of functions that would enable employees some sense of enjoyment: ie: Christmas parties, discount group rates for sporting events or Carowinds Seniority means nothing, you're just a number.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Confidence in their ability to recognize employees contributions to the company are shot. Placing new hires in first shift positions and by-passing off-shift employees with years of service, keeping people locked in place is very frustrating. In the manufacturing world you put in your time to get a day job and when you do and get pushed off your shift, not bumped and are told to live with it no matter how it effects your home life is a little too much to take.

    Former Employee - Operations Intern in Clarksville, TN (US)

    I worked at Ingersoll-Rand as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    I actually worked at Trane which is owned by Ingersoll Rand. Flexible schedule. It was pretty lenient. I could come in at 6 or 8:30 or really whenever as long as it wasn't outrageous hours. As long as I worked 40 hours a week I could basically choose my hours. There's also a lot of overtime if you would like that. I gained a lot of experience. People are generally friendly and love helping you out. It has a pretty relaxed environment.

    Cons

    Sometimes you have to work on Saturdays because the line is working then too. They don't have a lot of direction. As an intern you have to go find your own work to do and ask around if anyone has work for them. There's also a whole blame game going on too. Managers will blame other departments for problems and its just a huge circle where everyone blames each other. Theres also no accountability so it is hard to get things done sometimes.
