I have been working at Hilti North America full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great Training and Support. Good benefits.

Cons

Managers inflate what is possible to earn. Although the bonus programs do allow you to reach certain levels often times the ability to reach those levels that managment has set is unrealistic. To make the same each year you must grow your territry at least a minimum of 10% otherwise you can sell the same and make significantly less money.

Advice to Management

Goals that are unrealistic cuase sales people to be apathetic which fosters a cancerous culture. keep the goals attainable.

    Pros

    Recognized as a quality tool
    Values college degree
    Competition copies
    Training on products
    Tend to hire good people
    If your family doesn't mind moving, it can be an ok place to work.
    Good company for 2-3 years then go to a better company.

    Cons

    Pay is very low
    Negative attitude of management.
    Management is incompetent and they poke fun at their subordinates. No direction and no help after basic training. Revolving door of managers.
    Quarterly changes to how people are paid causes a deep lack of trust.

    Advice to Management

    Hilti needs a complete replacement of division managers, general managers, and ceo. Morale of field salespeople will soar once competent managers are in place that appreciate Hilti and truly care about teamwork. Compared to other companies I have been with, this leadership is pathetic in how it treats people and poor in managing day to day operations. Stop changing territories so much. In my 4 years so far with Hilti, I have had 3 Regional Managers. Two of them knew nothing about Hilti, construction, or how to sell an expensive product. Move away from your laptops and lead. We will follow you if you start setting an example and give us reason to trust you.

    I have been working at Hilti North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -If you've been here 10+ years, you are tenured and have the ultimate job security.
    -Great place to pull some strings and get your son, daughter, brother, husband or wife employed, very family friendly.

    Cons

    - HQ consits of Okie locals who's been here all their lives and loves things the way they are, resistant to change.

    Advice to Management

    -Promote based on merit and hard work, NOT on who they know or related to.
    --Having a fancy "SPIRIT SHERPA" does not do anything for the company, move away from management fads new-age leadership theories and be more visible and accessible.
