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

    Pros

    I have worked for several multi national's before. They are big for a reason, they're not there to make friends they exist to make profit. Hilti is different! You notice that the moment you walk through the door, or see literally anyone of their red shirts on job site. That smile my friend, tells you that they are happy and treated with respect. The level of care and thought they put into every aspect of the products they develop is phenomenal. I will wholeheartedly endorse Hilti to any of my friends.

    Cons

    I'm sure they have some, but I have not found them yet.

    Advice to Management

    Avi, you and your team are doing a bang up job, keep up the good work!

    One of the best reasons I have came back to work for Hilti is thy treat you like a person, not a robot. The trust they have in you makes you wake up every morning having pride in what you. Hilti does alot to keep you in a position you will be successful at and are willing to be patient until you find your nitch.

    Cons

    Can not think of one.

    I have been working at Hilti North America full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Hilti has offered me so many opportunities to grow. I have been at Hilti for 15 years and held 7 positions, each of them with extensive training. In addition, the long-term perspective of the Hilti family has always made me feel secure.

    Cons

    There aren't any cons significant enough to list after starting in an inside sales role many years ago.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your employee opinion survey and increasing the benefits in an effort to move from a great place to work to the #1 place to work.

    Pros

    Hilti truly does strive to become a company that focuses on driving performance and creating a caring culture. Hilti offers paid time off far in excess of the norms for personal, charitable, and development needs. Hilti's pay is competitive and fair.

    Cons

    Hilti's culture is a driven one. If you are not willing to move or strive to excel you may feel left behind.

    Advice to Management

    Cointinue to communicate your vision and be present and available.

    I worked at Hilti North America full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits such as tuition reimbursement, time off. Hilti does a great job hiring good people, never had one unpleasant coworker.

    Cons

    Low base salary, bonus structure instead of commission. No bonus unless 90% of forecast hit each month. Forecast is a predetermined growth percentage thrown on top of sales from the previous year without regard to large projects ending or other market changes. Annual performance targets for promotion within the account manager (level 1, level 2, etc) change every year. Saw multiple account managers hit the requirements for their promotion as set forth in January only to be denied in the "interview". Corporate wants to shift business online, this has made the account manager a turnkey position. Lots of senior employees being pushed out for cheaper, younger salesmen that stay 2-3 years. Seems corporate is fine with a warm body running a territory because enough business is going online now they can absorb the turnover.

    Pros

    Hilti truly understands the term, Work Life Balance. The company strives for its employees to be active members of their community and to work when it's time to work, and be home when it's time to be home. You are not pressured to work crazy hours, unless it is your choice to do so.

    Cons

    there are only some minor frustrations on a daily basis, but nothing that I would list as a con.

    Advice to Management

    If you continue to treat your employees as you do today, you will continue to have long tenure, happy employees.
