    I have been working at Hilti North America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The culture is a strong mix of traditional and modern, as a millennial I never feel stifled, but get the opportunity to work with people from all generations who are comfortable and able to find success.
    They are very committed to ensuring everyone has the opportunity to grow and develop in the way they want to, giving many systematic opportunities to give your voice and guide your own career path.
    As a privately held company, initiatives are very long term driven, no reporting to shareholders on a quarter by quarter basis.

    Cons

    The drive to succeed is so ingrained that it may be difficult for someone who wants to start a career and not move around.
    Limited locations by department. Sales opportunities in every corner of the world, other departments are much more limited unless you are looking outside the US.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to focus on the individuals. Develop people and give them every chance to succeed you can. The people here make the difference.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to advance and grow around the country and even internationally. Privately owned company adds long-term stability which all generations seem to appreciate. If it's your goal, chance to spend time in many different countries in order to understand the dynamics and differences among our organizations and customers. The core of culture is the same around the world – teamwork, commitment, courage and integrity – but each individual and each culture is respected and open to express themselves honestly.

    Cons

    Significant growth bring opportunity and challenges to on-board hundreds of new colleagues each year. It's difficult to know everyone's name these days.

    Advice to Management

    Please remember what we all learned in Culture Journey: We are successful as people and a company and it’s okay to occasionally pause/slow down in order to rest/recharge in order to speed up and outperform in the future.
