    Former Employee - District Manager in New York, NY
    Recommends

    I worked at KONE full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - lots opportunities to be an entrepreneur within the company if you take the initiative. - got to learn about service business, sales, management, manufacturing, contract management, litigation, plans and specs, construction, subcontracting, labor relations, human resources, negotiations, public speaking, engineering, continuing education, research & development, expert testimony, safety, engineering, building codes,...

    Cons

    - a few bad hires at the top several years ago led to a number of top performers and some highly tenured stars leaving the company. That weakened the future. (Those few bad hires have since been fired.) - maintenance & repair business lines lost sight that it is a "service" business. -- Work for your contract customers as if you were working for tips. Provide great service. - Local branch offices became disempowered....

    Advice to Management

    Empower and trust your frontline managers. Grant the P&L managers of frontline offices a few stock options. A small amount of stock would be a huge incentive and you'd get more managers acting like owners.

    I have been working at KONE full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Work from home - 1 day a week program/flex schedule Casual corporate environment company provides necessary resources and supplies Benefits are solid Pay is fair Co-workers - Awesome & very respectful

    Cons

    Organization needs to be more co-hesive between frontline and supply line operations. Organization could benefit from balancing from a pull through the flow process with a push process flow

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in the development of your people. Do not be afraid to think outside the box in your hiring practices just because we've always hired "elevator" people doesnt mean that others outside of this industry cannot be good fit infact they often are better because they have a benchmark for creative solutions.
