    I worked at Hilti Group full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    - great (international) opportunities - a company culture that is lived throughout the organisation - HR people processes that all leaders are committed to --> develop your people and achieve your results is what all team leaders are held accountable for

    Cons

    - homogeneous group, you either fit in or you don't (make sure you draw that conclusion for yourself fast...)

    I have been working at Hilti Group full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    People are great. Benefits are pretty good. Not to many processes. Vacation is great. Paternity leave is a thing here! Freedom is higher than usual.

    Cons

    Salary is pretty good but could be better. Systems need improvement. Logistics are horrible and sometimes the office is very out of touch with what is happening in the field.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people on the ground and everything will be better. It’s very simple.

    I worked at Hilti Group full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    -Products are innovative and competitive. -Not hard to sell when creative and understand value proposition. -Product Training is solid. -Great trips and recognition - was Top Sales Club, Masters Club multiple times. Took us to places like the Padre’s stadium in San Diego. Great with trips.

    Cons

    -Negative Overall Culture. Communication can be lacking and feedback limited to a written communication. -So focused on college students coming out of school they neglect talented individuals that have great ideas and talent to contribute. -Lowest pay of any like competitor (although great benefits). -Account Managers have no way to develop if they are not willing to “move” or “relocate”. Causes stagnation at the bottom...

    Advice to Management

    Don’t keep leaders that pass blame to those they Ar suppose to be developing. A negative leader causes gray people to leave. Find ways to develop the less mobile account managers and allow them opportunities to contribute their experience.

    April 4, 2018HR Director - US West

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts. I’m glad you enjoyed the sales reward trips during your eight years of being a team member. Because of the distance Hawaii is from the mainland, a larger percentage of communication has to be done by email or videoconference than elsewhere. ...

    I have been working at Hilti Group full-time

    Pros

    Caring, performance orientation across the company. Global company with very strong financials. Tons of career development opportunities for those who are interested in advancement.

    Cons

    A little too conservative. If you want to advance in the company, you must be willing to relocate - likely more than a couple times.

    Advice to Management

    It's a great company, no doubt about that. However, you should push for more outside-in knowledge. Too much sense of "we are experts in everything" within the employee base.

    WAAAAY too many internal meetings. Internal focus causes missed opportunities. Think people here know everything - especially when they don't. WAAAY too bureaucratic and process oriented.

    Advice to Management

    LOSE the EB member with the overly GIANT ego.

    Pros

    Location and beautiful interior. Open cubes and fishbowl offices. Great networking areas. High energy and competent co-workers. Bright colors and great view.

    Cons

    No follow up to communication. Under staffed in several areas. Most people are doing the job of three employees. Growth will increase but staffing needs to expand.

    Advice to Management

    Follow up and communicate
