    Pros

    Overall, my experience here was overwhelmingly positive Largest crane company in the Industry which comes with immediate name recognition Paid well for what you do (however, by no means a lucrative opportunity) Work/life balance was the best I’ve ever had, able to work from home as you please, just hit your numbers and you are left alone Numbers were very easy to hit, could not understand why my counterparts in other areas struggled so mightily. Good benefits (outside of PTO)

    Cons

    This is a role well-suited for hungry, entry level applicants looking to break into outside sales, not for seasoned veterans. There are simply way better sales positions available to us with solid experience and ability in terms of pay. PTO is worse than anywhere I’ve ever seen, by a landslide. This is offset by lazy work from home days, which probably hurts productivity more than providing sufficient PTO Middle management seems out of tune with the marketplace/roles and responsibilities of their employees. This is shown through unmotivated, overworked service/operations personnel and underperforming salespeople with no idea how to improve. Seemed like the techs/inspectors ran the show. How is this possible?

    Pros

    Konecranes builds a great product and offers their customers excellent service in general and it is easy to get behind that aspect and feel good about the company. A good deal of positions in the company offer company trucks or cars and the benefits are excellent, including 401K matching, health, vision, dental, and life. Also many people are on a bonus plan and everyone gets profit sharing. Still a growing company, there are a lot of opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    The company used to have a decent training program, but it has become very inadequate for the technicians and almost non-existent for lower level managers and supervisors. In fact, there is almost no effort being made to develop the next generation managers. Also, the home office in Finland is not very responsive to needs elsewhere, there is still too much centralized control from overseas that can make a manager's job difficult. Advancement is very limited by location and the ceiling can be reached very quickly at the branch level. Unless you are willing to move to the factory or corporate locations you are stuck mid-career. Konecranes is also a very demanding employer, demanding very long work days and typically pays below industry standard, employee turnover is a really big problem because of this. Unfortunately for Konecranes most people don't mind the hard work and enjoy working for Konecranes, but staying becomes very difficult when much more money can be made elsewhere. Expect to give 90% to the company and 10% to yourself, there is no work/life balance in Konecranes. The bureaucracy and red tape has become too much, diminishing many managers ability to make decisions and be effective managers. There is also a trend of hiring managers with no industry experience, which is fine if there is adequate training, but since there is very little training for managers and virtually no leadership development there are a lot of struggling managers in the company with a lot of dissatisfied employees.
