    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!

    I have been working at Hilti North America full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Having just come back from 16 weeks of family leave with my third child, being compensated 100%, I have never felt more confident in my return to an organization. Not only was my leave generous, I am also benefiting from our flexible work arrangements, working two days from home each week. As a mom of three children, four and under, every second at home in the mornings and afternoons, sans commute, is an opportunity to allow me to be the best parent I can be. And, ultimately being he best employee I can be. My fellow teammates welcomed and encouraged taking on my responsibilities while I was away and I received the warmest welcome when I returned, immediately meeting with our CEO and all who supported my role.

    Cons

    I can't think of one.

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

    Pros

    I enjoy coming to work every day. Even my worst day here is still better than my best days at past jobs I have worked. Hilti is a team company and everyone is inter-linked. I have gained some much personal and professional knowledge since starting here as Temp then to a Full-time hired employee. Hilti has constantly shown it's employees we are valued and pushes us to strive for the best.

    Cons

    I honestly can't think of 1 con. Hilti is constantly looking to improve in all areas including with it's employees happiness. Their words meet their actions.

    Advice to Management

    Keep developing and reaching out to employees, it works.

    I worked at Hilti North America full-time

    Pros

    Energetic culture with good earning potential for younger people

    Cons

    Senior management are very politicized and unwilling to listen to people who know markets and clients best.
    Health and safety is a joke at corporate level - no idea of LTI rate, leading indicators, risk assessment etc.
    Promote young people too early and do not encourage free thinking.

    Pros

    Many companies talk the talk, it’s refreshing to see a company that is constantly striving to walk the walk.

    The level of care is astounding. Not only for being the best products and services they are known for, but internally the care between each other.

    Cons

    It difficult to find cons, but if anything probably pay, but then again isn’t that always?

    Advice to Management

    Keep up and constantly strive for the next level.
