    Pros

    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.

    Pros

    Good hours, no weekends. Defined corporate culture, ethical treatment of workers. Great environment to learn in, plenty of seasoned professionals willing to assist.

    Cons

    Relocation a prerequisite for advancement. Must be willing to move in order to see career progress.

    Advice to Management

    Move corporate offices from Tulsa, OK to someplace more accessible. Would make for easier materials management and encourage better employees to move to corporate.

  6. An Inside Sales, Customer Service position in Tulsa Oklahoma can be a rewarding job.

    Pros

    You will learn all lot about the construction industry, sales, and business. Once you do your job and do it will, the opportunities to grow with the company are there.

    Cons

    Plan to be on the phone all day, remember its a call center. If you lack passion in this job, you will either quite or get fired.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more constancy in the way management holds workers accountable for there performance and behavior.

    Pros

    I feel that Hilt has good insurance and good time off policies. Over all benefits package is good. I'm an outside sales account manager and my co-workers are wonderful. We are a real team and work well with each other. Wonderful training for new hires.

    Cons

    Many times you feel like your just a number. You have a number to make and that's all they care about. Loyalty doesn't not seem to matter. Promotions and pay raises are difficult to achieve sometimes. Sometimes large swings from year to year on total pay.

    Pros

    Sales is, by far, the most important function that anyone can play in Hilti US. Both recurring and one-time incentives, specialized training, personal development opportunities and recognition are all targeted to the sales force. Sales leaders come from different professional backgrounds, which makes this process richer. Also, a great place to work if you are looking for opportunities abroad, especially if you are multilingual (multicultural, ideally). Willingness and capacity/ skills to try new functional roles (from Sales to Technical Support, then to Marketing, and back to Sales, for example), may be a plus, since employees who understand the business from different angles are appreciated. On a positive note, in the last years, Hilti US has made a stronger effort to show employee appreciation in different ways as well as increase the non-cash rewards offered.

    Cons

    If you are not interested/ willing to go into Sales, your career path at Hilti US could be somewhat limited. Training and development opportunities are clearly not as abundant (or supported) for other functional roles. Also, opportunities may be somewhat limited for those who are not willing/ able to relocate, at some point in their careers, to the corporate headquarters in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In a nutshell, if you are not in Sales and/or willing/ able to relocate, this is probably an "average" place to work for.
