    Pros

    Great products, fun atmosphere if you like construction and are able to work independently.

    Cons

    Poor compensation if trying to raise a family in NY. I left in 2004 as I was getting ready to start a family. Company was creating 'cookie cutter' processes that were not appropriate for every market.

    Advice to Management

    Understand individual markets better and realize the market share margin trade-offs necessary to succeed.

    Pros

    Great products
    Innovation leader
    Good starting pay
    Benefits are really good and work life balance is maintained for most positions.

    Cons

    The development process within Hilti is not consistent. Upper management makes decisions on whether employees have potential to move into higher level management without regards to past performance. Good ol boy network.

    Advice to Management

    Time for a change at the CEO level. Senior management team has lost the confidence from the work force and they have drive what was once a strong culture into a culture of profits at any expense.
