    I have been working at Hilti full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are great. Working hours flexible. Lots of opportunities to grow, if you follow the corporate culture and processes. And if you are willing to relocate.

    Cons

    Too many processes to follow. Not flexible to change. Too many meetings. The corporate matrix structure results in redundancy and waste of resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to basics. With every new process / new team to add, ask 3 times this question: "Is it really necessary? We didn't have this before."

    I worked at Hilti full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    They invest in developing their peoples sales skills. You will have monthly meetings going over the sales basics like sales cycle, role plays, etc. You will have the opportunity to sell a broad array of premium products which must be sold based upon their value vs. their price.

    Cons

    Compensation is poor and there is little assistance in getting people towards their goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revise the compensation plan so that your overall capacity to earn is 3X where it currently sits.

    Current Employee - Account Manager in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Hilti full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Many lateral positions; decent pay in certain regions; excelent life/work ratio; friendly atmosphere internally; everchanging industry

    Cons

    "fat" company - too many employees with little use; horrible credit department; lack of vertical positions; high management turnover; lack of accountability

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep promises made during interview process. Look at candidates ability to manage and not their sales numbers. The AM's number is largely based on their customers success not the AM.
