    Pros

    Good product overall , a bit expensive.

    Cons

    some regional managers have other agendas in mind, rather than letting the salespeople flurish, they look after their bonus instead. you bring in new customers and then they dont need you anymore.
    You might be better off to look at office staff position rather then sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Beware of the lower managers and what they are doing, its not always what they say.

    I have been working at Ingersoll-Rand

    Pros

    Wide business coverage creates steady revenue. Notorious brands are the company's best assets. Opportunity to work in an international environment. Good pay rate versus peer companies. The company is sure going somewhere... but where?

    Cons

    Top down culture. Few gurus dictate the way to go. Process capability is not a common concept. Poor change management. A couple of notoriously dysfunctional functions, whch do not seem to move in the right direction, spreading cynism and hypocrisy.
    Company assessment will depend a lot on your functional and geographical area. Corporate functions and emerging Countries are the right place to be. Just browse other reviews and judge by yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You cannot buy your greatness. Use the pool of great talents within the company. Pay more attention where value get created.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at those that you assume are doing their own jobs when in fact they are taking credit for others hard work.
