    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

    Company genuinely cares about being a great place to work, attracting top-shelf talent, and being the best partner for their customers. Sales targets are ambitious, but there is support available and the rewards for performance are substantial, whether financial or career development opportunities. The culture is very strong and pervasive, but overwhelmingly positive if you buy in.

    Cons

    Success is rewarded with either financial benefits (merit increases, AM level promotions) OR career opportunities, but not both. There are so many initiatives going on that it can be hard to decode what really matters.

    Advice to Management

    Keep building the culture, clarify the strategies and metrics that matter the most, and don't present mutually exclusive performance rewards.

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

    Pros

    My honest $.02 about my role as an account manager in Phoenix...

     Whenever you work for an individual who's instinctive question to solving a problem is "What is the right thing to do?"

     I can, with ease, say that I am particularly proud to be apart Mike Angelo's team here in Phoenix.

     Those words, that sentence... Makes me proud to work for a company who's core values reflect that doing the morally right thing is what is most important in business and in life.

    Cons

    You have to be consistently proactive towards your self development and enjoy making relationships.
    Learning through personal failures is what is key to growth.
