    Pros

    Hilti people are great to work with. The Hilti brand is recognized as a top performer in the industry and is well-respected. Within our work group, we are constantly striving to improve and do better.

    Cons

    One can get a couple of quick promotions but then find that his/her career has hit a ceiling pretty soon. Many people have to move on in order to keep moving up in their careers.

    Pros

    Actual experience in field instead of typical intern work. Got to interact with really important people in company which is rare for someone that is just an intern. Hilti is family based.

    Cons

    None to talk about. Work is what you make it and this was an enjoyable experience all around.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up the growth looks great

    Pros

    Great working environment. Top to bottom. Great products. Known as the best!

    Cons

    Compensation tends to shift frequently per Corporate based on "market" analysis. Heavy on bonus structure which can hurt you big time or you can score big.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to complain about. Usually great people trying to inspire you.

    Pros

    Awesome sales training. Generous base salary. Great training. Proud to sell the best brand. Company vehicle. Great people. Customers know Hilti and look at us as experts in the industry

    Cons

    Becoming to process oriented. Have to get approvals from several different people to do almost anything. Other departments to quick to say no instead of helping the sales force find a solution. Often there is a solution but as a sales person have to get past the initial no.

    Advice to Management

    No need for so many specialist positions.


  10. Hilti has a great culture, it is possible to hit targets. This is the epitome of autonomy. I love it here.

    Autonomy. Tons of vacation and personal time. Lots of chances to move up.

    Cons

    Hilti USA cares for its own. Not interested in my career aspirations as much as they are how they'll use me for their goals.
