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

    Pros

    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 worked at Schindler Elevator Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Good pay and great people to work with

    Cons

    Everything else! Company admits that the superintendent role is the hardest job in the company but does nothing to support the position. Lots of turnover due to the high stress environment. Superintendents are not given the tools they need to properly do their jobs. It’s like building a house without a hammer.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on profits and more on customers.
