    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.

    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Bridgeton, MO (US)

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

    Pros

    Casual dress and spacious office work environment. leader was great. support staff however were passive aggressive and immature in leadership styles. I was very surprised and put off by the lack of respect demonstrated towards temps.

    Cons

    No standardized training. Very hit or miss coaching. Temps don't even know what you don't know. I have never worked under such conditions. It was very apparent during training, that person was newly promoted and their uncertainty translated into being very curt and passive aggressive. Like a little kid playing boss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consistent training and onboarding if you're expecting consistent level of customer service. Don't tell temp..don't ask me anything. Or you should know that. Criticize individuals in ear shot of them. Literally one desk away. Very unprofessional, passive aggressive and unproductive leadership/ coaching style.
    When you do take initiative to be proactive then you're met with why are you doing that. Why do you need access to that info.

    High Flexibility depends on who is your manager. Most leaders lack leadership quality. No communications

    Pros

    Work environment is friendly with many good colleagues. They provides a certain amount of flexibility in terms of work life balance.

    Cons

    The management micro manages and focus too much on figures and performance neglecting development for employees. They select leaders base on years of service and not by leadership qualities. Managers listen only to the supervisors and do not communicate with others. There is a serious lack of communication within the organization. Information are not properly disseminated resulting in speculations when issues arise. No career prospect. Only good as retirement or if you are fine with no progression for life,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not only listen to the managers. Understand the process before addressing the issues. Do not only say improve the quality of service or products but never address the gap. Generic training will not help. Need to find out the actual gap and conducts training to address them. Provides career progress and development for executives or senior staff, Do not only focus on senior management training. The touch points with the customers are those staff who needs to interact daily with the customer both online and on-site.

    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.

    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!
