    I have been working at Schindler Elevator Corporation

    Pros

    Schindler Philadelphia has a great leadership team that focuses on actively recruiting and developing the best talent. Highly motivated staff that are a pleasure to work with. Continued learning and professional development is encouraged.

    Cons

    Office is located in an industrial park in suburban New Jersey which makes commuting from Philadelphia or Pennsylvania less convenient.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Schindler Elevator Corporation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good training process, generally good benefits and compensation

    Cons

    Terrible culture and terrible work environment that stems from the top. There is absolutely ZERO diversity at the Houston office, likely because it’s filled with racism. If you are not a white ultra conservative, they will give you a 1 strike policy. This stems from the top of the management and it's evident the first week in the office. This company is what is wrong with present day America. If you are caught just merely...

    I worked at Schindler Elevator Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Company car, % paid on Change Notices booked, excellent products and amazing field staff. Field staff is the core of the company and product line is the best in the industry.

    Cons

    Poor health and dental insurance. Very disorganized company and lack of team concept. Management puts too much trust into Clients instead of trusting staff. Lack of synergy puts individuals in tough position and constant feeling of being on the defense.

    Advice to Management

    Overhaul the Sunrise office and put Managers in place that will allow company to thrive. Company has amazing products however Managers do not encourage a working environment for optimum success. Trust the people making you money and encourage development and support your employees.

    I have been working at Schindler Elevator Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Structured organization that provides support to all levels. Installation, service , sales all have corporate processes to support the individuals in their roles

    Cons

    Large corporate structure, that can, at times be inflexible. Sometimes ground up ideas are not acknowledged and they could bring additional benefit to employees or customers.

    I worked at Schindler Elevator Corporation

    Pros

    Decent salary, very nice desks

    Cons

    Outdated communications systems (still using Lotus Notes...) Leadership tends to be concerned with the bottom line and not with professional growth of personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Switch to MS Outlook!

    I worked at Schindler Elevator Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    high compensation is the only good thing, pay and benefits, but the company is buying your compliance, it's hard to come up with 20 words of pros to report

    Cons

    horrible place to work. every negative thing a workplace can have is here. Terrible service to the customers, poor employee morale, high turnover, severe micromanaging. If you speak up about problems, you're told to be silent or they move you on. The customers and employees, through surveys, continuously tell the story of how bad things are, year after year. The latest ceo is an improvement, but the culture is beyond...

    I have been working at Schindler Elevator Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, lots of advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    Micromanaging is becoming more prevalent. Seeing more and more outside consulting firms coming in. Not listening to long tenured employees feedback for process improvement. Seems to be going through a culture change of hiring more outside and not promoting from within

    Advice to Management

    Forget the consultants, listen to your tenured employees who have made the company successful for so long. Update the tools and technology to today's market to allow the employees and customers to provide the top service in the industry.
