    Shouldn't give up on loyal employees who dedicated 3+ years over one bad performance review.

    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 10 years

    Pros

    The people in local offices are great and work hard. Pay is good

    Cons

    Unless you know someone and come from TKE or Otis don’t bother applying. They will find a reason to not promote you or give you a role you want. Management only hires friends or family. Zero diversity. Horrible business structure, more with less. Customers not happy, cancellation through the roof, on record to be the worst elevator company in the US. Can’t keep people, don’t hire people with experience, and have too many...

    Advice to Management

    Understand that without field employees you have no future. Better oversight in HR process. Stop hiring friends and family, hire talent with experience.

    I have been working at Schindler Elevator Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay scale is great, company gave me a phone, a brand new truck to use for work and personal use, good vacation package, good health and dental

    Cons

    You will be stressed all the time. You will be asked to do with 2 guys what used to be done with 5. Corporate has cut heads to the point where it is impossible to get your job done. We dont have enough hours to do preventative maintenance, inspections, repairs and management just says get it done.

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

    Pros

    Local branch is growing, and has a decent team dynamic definitely has some growing pains, but seems to have a steady lead, and drive to get there. Interesting industry. Seems to be LOTS of opportunity worldwide.

    Cons

    Lots of processes, and reporting 'up the chain' to be expected, it frequently feels as though your work is duplicated or triplicated. Highly technical for some parts of the job duties. Seems as though a lot gets loaded onto your plate, "everyone is doing their part for the team" but not quite as a short term plan.

    Advice to Management

    Provide necessary support - as in people... for teams so that everyone can do their job very well.
