    I have been working at Schindler full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Managers seem to care and focus on employee development. If you play your cards right, you will make over $200k. Sales commission plans have a lot of opportunities to make good money. Customers don’t come first, employees come first All the employees seem to get along in the Charlotte office Culture is first class. Really enjoy going to work All employees get company cars

    Cons

    HQ at times don’t seem to be held accountable P&L targets can be unrealistic Supply chain is a mess Vehicles are driven beyond their life

    Advice to Management

    Field Quality is a focus but the time given to make adjustments isn’t realistic. Stop cutting field manpower. We are already at the bare bone.

    Pros

    Thank God it's only 5 days a week in hell

    Cons

    Management is horrible! Too busy trying to be buddies with staff instead of running the office. Let's the admin run the company. No training. Nasty attitude towards customers. There is so much drama. It's like a big uncontrolled daycare. This company will never be number one in the elevator business.

    Advice to Management

    Take some management classes. You do not have a clue what you are doing.

    I worked at Schindler full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Good salary, flexible schedule, good training, some really good people at local level

    Cons

    It seems great on the surface but once you are hired you quickly learn this is a poorly managed company that cares very little for the customer or their employees. The hiring strategy of only hiring inexperienced MBA’s who do not understand the business is destroying the good reputation of this company. They do not hire or promote women from within. If you look at the corporate chart there is not a single woman in upper...

    Advice to Management

    Focus on experience as opposed to putting people in place based on who knows who or who is related. You do yourself no favors in cutting labor, paying ridiculous salaries to unqualified managers and continually micro managing a process as opposed to actually just doing what the client hires you to do. Recognize that the industry needs quality and not quantity in its management. You have lost a significant number of clients...
