From Columbia, SC — 01/25/2010

Since Ingersoll-Rand has taken over Trane the policies and cost/savings have implemented have been on the backs of their employees. For Example:
Paydays went from weekly to bi-weekly, to twice monthly to once a month for salaried employees
Paydays are now twice montly for hourly employees
Insurance coverage was reduced from 90-10 to 80 -20 plan
Your insurance premium share was based on your salary -the more you earned the more you paid which was fair. Now all employees pay the same amount - that really hurts the hourly employees.
The hourly pay rate is below or at the area lowest average so now turnover is becoming higher and higher as employees leave for jobs that pay just a dollar or two more per hour.
They require you to put a percentage of your retirement into a company stock pool plan and they refuse to pay the stock dividend to employees because the pool ownes the stock and it is not individually owned.
The tuition reimbursement plan says they will pay for 100% reimburse for a Masters - but after enrolling in programs at least three Trane employes found out that the policy only applies to Ingersoll-Rand employees and not Trane employes. Those employees are not going to get reimbursed despite the web-site saying they will and their supervisors saying they will, and there plant manager saying they will.
The CEO just got a 10% raise - after everyone was told there would be no raises, no cost of living, and all travel was severely restricted until the new fiscal year. What are they thinking?
Trane was a good place to work before the takeover and there were high hopes on the merger. It has been nothing but empty promises from the Ingersoll-Rand people, reduced benefits, and an extremely poorly planned and implemented take-over of the day-to-day business of the manufacturing plants. Morale is dropping like a rock and when the ecomony takes off many good people will be looking for work - elswhere.

From Chino, CA — 09/14/2008

Have been working at the facility for 18 months and am enjoying myself. Pay was good for entry level and the benefits are great. Politics exist as in any other facility/office but put in the effort to get to know peers, supervisors, and managers and there is no problem in regard to respect issues. Speak intelligently, be humble, remain tactful and just about anybody will bend over backwards to help you out with the exception of a few managers and supervisors. No concern in regard to job security as there are many projects in the pipeline. Work/Life balance is great as managers are understanding of personal needs and while you may have to work the occasional 12 hour shift, you will not be denied an afternoon off if it is truly needed. Not too sure about career potential yet as I am still fairly new but it appears to be limited. The work environment is exciting and co-worker competence, while high, may at times be non existent as a few workers have low morale and feel that they cannot make a difference. Appears that they are just hanging out and waiting for retirement at times. Over all this is a great company to work for and I am proud to be a part of it. Hope to see more posts soon, especially if it differs from my own experiences. Thanks!!
