Trane account managers beware of some of you superiors are looking at the short term only.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Montreal, QC

I worked at Ingersoll-Rand full-time for more than a year

ProsGood product overall , a bit expensive.

Conssome 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 Senior ManagementBeware of the lower managers and what they are doing, its not always what they say.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good company, Tough transition

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Ingersoll-Rand

ProsRoom for upward growth if you are a high performer with a solid manager. A lot of the upward growth is determined by your manager and who you impress.

ConsCompany is going through an extremely difficult transition period. Tough hours, a lot of confusion for probably the next year.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep trying to promote the right people, and look internally for promotions.
