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

    Pros

    - The office managers (particularly in Charlotte) seem to care on employee development and individual success. - if you play your cards right you could make close or over $200k - customers don’t come first, employees come first - Culture is best in class - very little turn over in Carolinas and no one wants to leave - employees get company cars - flexible work hours - Minimal travel unless you sign up for that type of...

    Cons

    - Some HQ contributors aren’t held accountable - P&L targets have ballooned up that are beyond stretch goals - Supply chain needs vast improvement - Vehicles are driven beyond life expectancy.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are glad there is a focus on field quality. However we need to stop cutting field resources and manpower. You need to get away from record growth and record cuts mindset. In order to grow, our resources should grow.

    I have been working at Schindler Elevator Corporation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - All of the people I've met actually care about employee development - Haven't met anyone who turns their nose up and people that report to them (I'm sure they're out there but the overall experience is positive) - This company will pay you if you can prove you're worth it - This company will get rid of you if you can't pull your weight! - Promotes from within consistently, they take care of their own - Give you...

    Cons

    - Health Care is expensive! Highest of the companies I've worked for. They try to help out but it's still pretty expensive. They think it's competitive with others but it's not. I think they try and supplement the high cost by paying a little more but it didn't stop me from signing on. - They charge you for your vehicle (some other do, some don't). The car is the cheapest but if you get a full-size truck you'll pay...

    Advice to Management

    - Keep stocking the ranks with quality people! - For the love of all things, get laptops with 4G/LTE connectivity. We're not always around WiFi and setting up a hot spot is a pain in the keester

          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.

          Approves of CEO

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

          Pros

          The teams move fast and there is a lot of opportunity to make impact on different projects, never the same day twice.

          Cons

          Similar to the pros, the speed and variety of project can quickly lead to being spread too thin on your work and not being able to meet the deliverables for the field.

          Advice to Management

          Continue to simplify and help the HQ teams focus on the VFOs (vital few objectives) as the concept makes sense.....but rarely seems to happened (ie VFOs).
