Pros

Hilti has great products and commitment to innovation. Their products are the best in the industry. The overall talent in the organization is good especially in the technical disciplines.

Cons

Hilti has a very inflexible and short sided view of the world. Even thought they operate as a global company the leadership tends to be very closed minded towards new ideas and ways of conducting business. Clearly, the biggest struggle Hilti has in the development of leadership. They are not good at development of internal talent and are even worse at integrating talent from the outside. This is a company will loads of potential but is clearly lost on how to go from good to great.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The management at Hilti needs to develop a more customer focused approach to everything that they do. SAP is not designed to be a platform to develop a market or customer strategy. Also, the management needs to start to focus on developing leadership talent instead of ranking everyone without actions and programs for performance improvement. Anyone can rank and judge people a progressive organization will develop talent.

    Pros

    Great Products
    Solid Innovation (product)
    Although salary is lower than average the benefits are excellent despite the recent changes to the health plan

    Cons

    Poor leadership at the highest level
    Puppet management - Senior managers look to the CEO to see if he agrees before expressing his view.
    Senior management main concern is Senior management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have worked here over 15 years and have never seen the morale worse.
    Time to make a change so that Hilti can move forward.
    Unfortunately we are not sure that the people that can make change recognize the problem.

    Pros

    strong leadership and development in sales and products plus training and strong organizational culture strategy

    Cons

    the leadership is very tight on money as far as salary compensations and promotion strategy. More is asked for the same or less pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Truly promote and develop people that brings the best to the company and do not leverage/compare everyone as the same.
