    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

    You have a very flexible schedule. You basically make your own schedule. They have good yearly training on new products where they will get the whole Market Organization either West coast, East coast or Central region together to go over new products and new changes within the next year. They also have a decent health package that includes paid vacation, holidays, short term and long term medical disability, company euro style van to carry products to and from customers and many resources in the corporate office to help with new hires.

    Cons

    The sales quotas for each year change and are based off prior year plus add a large percentage. They are extremely hard to meet making getting a bonus very difficult. Especially if you are new to the sales role or were promoted from within the company. Also if you don't make your sales goals for two consecutive years they either demote you or fire you. There is also a long of turn over within the management department and corporate offices. The company vehicle is a European systel van that can't fit / hold all the product you need to have so you either have to have a storage unit or garage you can store extra material in.

    Advice to Management

    Makes sales goals achievable and don't try to blow the number out of the water each year. Also, actually be there for your employees. When they ask for help, don't put it on the back burner or advise them to talk to customer service or find it online. Also, have more group activities with the sales team. Most roles are remote based and don't have a feel of an actual team.

    Pros

    Management allows you to learn and take chances; then provide feedback to continue personal growth. The inclusive culture has always made me very comfortable to be myself even though I may not be your typical employee to be in the construction industry.

    Cons

    I think that the actual salary and bonus structure for both sales and non sales roles could be more in line with how well we are told the business is doing.

    Advice to Management

    They could have more structured plans on where certain careers move into outside of the sales specific roles. This is something that the human resources could improve upon.

    Pros

    Company core values! Great training! Invest on your career. Want you to succeed and promote in the company. They love to hire from the inside of the company.

    Cons

    In the Construction industry you get to deal with some very uneducated people but that's also what different you and gives you a head start.

    Pros

    Great product. Customers love buying the product, making it an easy conversation. Hilti provides plenty of time off. Relaxed work environment.

    Cons

    When you take the days off, you're required to make up the calls that you have missed while being gone. Makes it impossible to take a long vacation. Hilti used to pay very good bonuses, but the forecasting has become so aggressive that the company is having the best year of profit ever, and no one is making a bonus.

    Advice to Management

    Change the insurance to something other than high deductible insurance. Make the bonus forcast low enough that it can be achieved.
