    I have been working at Konecranes full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Konecranes core values make you want to work here. Konecranes has a clear vision and mission that they want to accomplish and it is completely centered around a world-class customer experience. If you like a growth organization that's committed to non-complacency and striving for continous improvement, this is a great place to be. If you're status quo or just looking to get by and collect a paycheck, there are better places out there for you.

    Cons

    Being a growth organization is not easy as it is a constant effort to try and get better every day. This can wear on some people, but growth is how you attract and retain talent over the long-term.

    Advice to Management

    Remember people are our greatest asset, period. Our products and services are amazing but so are our people.

    I worked at Konecranes full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people you work with are amazing and extremely talented. The benefits are really good and the 401K is outstanding. The vision for the company is great.

    Cons

    Remember that the administration is vital to your organization. When it comes time for the raises and the District Managers are told that the maximum is 4% but then it goes to 3 % allowable is what is told to the managers except for admin which was told 2.5%. Constant pressure about numbers from higher up not how to with no help. You will always be criticized for making mistakes. The pay is really low for administrators.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that even though you are growing, don't forget to remember the outstanding people that helped get you there. I am gone and I continue to see amazing, I mean amazing people, even high up management leave. This is bad as these people were inspiring to the ones who worked for them. The replacements are just number driven and really could care less about you.
