    I have been working at Schindler Elevator Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - The office managers (particularly in Charlotte) seem to care on employee development and individual success. - if you play your cards right you could make close or over $200k - customers don’t come first, employees come first - Culture is best in class - very little turn over in Carolinas and no one wants to leave - employees get company cars - flexible work hours - Minimal travel unless you sign up for that type of...

    Cons

    - Some HQ contributors aren’t held accountable - P&L targets have ballooned up that are beyond stretch goals - Supply chain needs vast improvement - Vehicles are driven beyond life expectancy.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are glad there is a focus on field quality. However we need to stop cutting field resources and manpower. You need to get away from record growth and record cuts mindset. In order to grow, our resources should grow.

    I have been working at Schindler Elevator Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great compensation/benefits, exceeding the competition. Robust safety program/culture. Knowledgable and good people to work with in the office and field. Constantly innovating internal IT systems.

    Cons

    Exceedingly lean with manpower both in the office and field. More time is spent putting out fires than getting to preventative maintenance. Seems to be more concern for meeting internal metrics, such has hours per day worked by mechanics, than delivering for the customer. National accounts has been allowed to enter into contracts that essentially give away the farm, putting significant strain on local offices.

    Advice to Management

    The “do more with less” business model is not a recipe for long term growth.
