    I have been working at KONE full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good people. Global exposure. Excellent PTO.

    Cons

    95% of directors are male. 85% of managers are male. 50% of staff is female. Do the math. Promotion opportunities for females are limited and typically they already know who they want in the position before it's ever posted.

    Advice to Management

    Need to really look at how you do promotion and hiring. It's absolutely ridiculous in today's world that more women aren't in leadership positions.

    I have been working at KONE full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The best part about KONE is the people. They have a great culture and people are genuinly excited to come to work everyday.

    Cons

    The Elevator business can be very technicial. If you have no background in mechanics it can take some time to learn the ins and outs of the trade.

    I have been working at KONE full-time

    Pros

    The benefits, such as, insurance and 401K are good. 2 choices for insurance.

    Cons

    Management tends to micromanage everything and complain if you come to them with information THEY request for approval.

    Advice to Management

    Give teams freedom to adopt solutions for better service to customers. Remove the barriers to communicate with certain teams, such as engineering and logistics. Make it so we are one company and are all working toward the same goal of awesome service.
