Big warehouse/ unending tasks
Warehouse Associate/Forklift Operator (Former Employee) –  Olathe, KSNovember 29, 2018
Allegion, formerly Ingersoll Rand is the distribution center for Lowes, Menards, Walmart and Home Depot across all of those retailer's US locations. They also ship to international locations but on a much smaller scale. The workload at this warehouse is constant and consistent, so as a warehouse associate there is always something to keep busy.
Pros
consistency in work load, solid benefits packages
Cons
constant, repetitive, laborious work

Wasn't a great place
Line Operator (Former Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHOctober 28, 2018
My time here was short and I'm happy it was. Seen a lot of clear racism towards non-minorities. Would get yelled at for looking at my phone for the time, yet seen others texting and was just told 'theyve been here forever so they can'. The union provided a lot of security in your job and unless you got points for attendance it was hard to get fired, so that means a lot of people that have been there awhile will be lazy where the rest had to pick up the slack and management turned a blind eye.
Pros
Work/life balance during slow season, paid breaks.
Cons
Dirty factory, no smoking on property, lazy people.

Hard work and lazy employees
Team Leader/Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, IN 46226September 21, 2018
Allegion is a great place to work, at times it can be difficult to work with employees that are there just to collect a pay check. Most employees are friendly, and willing to help each other. The company is not every strict on employees that take breaks when it's not time for one which is harder on others to pick up the slack. There is way to much gossip, if you tell someone something that you don't want repeated it still gets out, and by the end of the shift everyone knows what was said. New employees see how hard the work is, and after the lunch period they leave because the work is too hard for the amount of pay.
Pros
none
Cons
lazy leadership

Do not work here
Hourly Associate (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHDecember 20, 2018
If they don't find a reason to fire you they will push you into quitting. The tier pay screws people into making 5 dollars less than others. They go out of their way to show you they don't care if you have FMLA watch out. Most cutthroat place I've ever worked.
Pros
There are none
Cons
Worst job I've ever had

Management views of the shop employee is downright deplorable .
Steel Worker (Former Employee) –  Blue Ash, OHSeptember 10, 2018
The management never takes into consideration the personal needs or lives of the employees on the shop floor . I've personally heard members of the management team refer to the shops employees as " they're nothing more than animals " . Management will never take anything suggested for improvement by a shop employee under advisement . The lack of true training is not only shameful but I consider it a safety concern . When I first started working there the culture was more focused on a safe working environment along with production of a quality product by involved employees .

Horrible management
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Olathe, KSSeptember 27, 2018
Allegion offers fair pay but not great for the lack of training/ guidance. Management is horrible. The managers just like to sit there and not help any of the employees but get upset if you do the slightest thing wrong.
Pros
Pay is decent
Cons
Everything else

Enjoyed it and grew professionally with it
Specification Consultant (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZAugust 23, 2018
While becoming an specification writer/consultant was not what I had initially planned after graduating from college, I must say that it was a great decision, and opportunity to grow professionally, and develop new skills.

The team was friendly, welcoming, helpful and motivating.

Watch your back
Salary Manager (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJune 25, 2018
The management at this place is incompetent. The only way Plant Manager knows how to cut cost is to lay people off. The company is lacking integrity with regards to how they treat their salary employees. its an OK place if you are hard up for a job but keep in mind, they will stab you in the back the first chance they need too. All salary people are potential sacrificial lambs.
Pros
its an OK place if you are hard up
Cons
lack integrity and ethics

Project management (Current Employee) –  Cincinnati, OHDecember 8, 2018
Allegion makes nice products. Some, you use everyday in your home and don't even think about it. If you enjoy working with people, this is the place for you

Shift of priorities needed to retain strong performers
HR (Current Employee) –  United StatesJanuary 23, 2019
Spin off from Ingersoll Rand about 5 years ago so a fairly new company with solid brand reputation, but new company struggles. Strategy and focus seems to change frequently with multiple org changes that aren't explained well. Communication is lacking from the leadership team-don't assume messages are getting cascaded down because most likely they aren't. If you want development, a promotion, or out of job scope project work then be prepared to lobby yourself and be assertive-it should be more of a reciprocal dynamic. Positive reinforcement and feedback is lacking, I'd like to see this be more of an initiative. Very much VP heavy-it seems titles are granted without much thought around why we need to maintain such a executive heavy workforce. Shouldn't we be putting those monies back into innovation, marketing, and manufacturing development? We're supposed to be considered a lean environment, but the workforce/priorities/money spend don't reflect this.
Pros
Compensation, flexibility, and some really great people
Cons
Communication, lack of consistent priorities and focus, executive heavy

Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COFebruary 26, 2018
Usually 5 am to 3 pm. I liked the people i worked with and management communicated a lot with workers and seem to care a lot about them. The bad thing was having to do a lot of orders in summer and if we ever got behind we would have to work over the weekend.
Pros
Three breaks
Cons
Worked Overtime, 10 hour days
