    Returned Employee - Happy to be back

    Pros

    As someone who worked for KONE for 10+ years and went to pursue a different career path for a period of time but came back, I am very glad to be back. Since finishing my apprenticeship with KONE, I have been lucky enough to go to global training courses, formal education and leadership development. KONE invests in its people and supports career growth for those that also take an active approach to their own development. As part of a global company, there are always opportunities for moving roles, responsibilities and/or locations. Everyone is always willing to help and offer support, regardless of whether "it's their problem" or not.

    Cons

    KONE have come a long way over the last few years with their approach to flexible working and are making further improvements there too. Some say they expect a lot which I guess is true but rewards, opportunities and recognition are always there for when people when deliver.

    Women beware

    Oct 19, 2022 - Sales Executive

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Great benefits Generally good people to work with

    Cons

    Women are treated and paid unfairly and DEI is a joke. They only added it for optics. There’s a mass exodus of women across the company. There are so few women and minorities in leadership, which is because their promotions come from within the boys club and if a woman breaks that barrier, she is pushed out.
