Conducive learning environment and respectful culture

I have worked as an Intern in HILTI Shanghai and really enjoyed my time. The objectives and milestones were clearly defined at the beginning of the project. My manager was in frequent contact with me making sure things were on track and that I was getting the requisite help from the team members. The culture is friendly and people will take time to help you get through with difficult things. However, the work is intensive and you need to switch caps since you'll be collaborating with different teams simultaneously.

Pros

Respectful culture, friendly managers, free lunch, nice office

Cons

Long working hours, short deadlines

Fast paced- Work/ Life for few departments is challenging

Benefits are decent. Hard to manage worklife balance for few departments. Hardest part of the job is micromanagement, enjoyable part is period fun filled activities within the organization.

Pros

Facilities

Cons

Worklife balance

Ability to create your own schedule & build your business

Hilti is good in the ways they do let you build your relationships with customer and you get to decide how your day looks. Hilti has changed drastically in my few years here. They do not compensate you well with a base salary. The bonus structure has changed to where money is left on the table from previous years & have made it harder to get promoted. Hilti gets in its own way when making sales which can cause you to lose business. Company pushes certain products, yet we don't have a supply at the warehouse but are expected to hit quota. Hilti does do well on making sure you are well trained on products and services. If you are looking to make a lot of money Hilti is not the company to do that with.

Pros

Company car, phone, Cc, take customers out to lunch

Cons

compensation, lack of leadership, bonus structure, supply chain

Terrible Leadership

Too many bosses. Unrealistic sales goals. Good ol’ boy network. Massive Favoritism. No control of your time. Have to drag a bunch of inexperienced kids around with you to ALL of your calls or they get Buthurt and tattle to your bosses.

Pros

Tons of travel

Cons

Tons of travel. Big Baby Network.

Eigene Werte leben

Hilti hat tolle Produkte und einen Plan für die Zukunft. Es finden sich viele interessante Aufgaben und ich habe in meiner Zeit dort viel gelernt. Ich habe die Firma trotzdem verlassen, da ich mit dem Verrat der eigenen Hilti Werte (in der Konzernzentrale) nicht klargekommen bin. Es wurden Mitarbeiter vorgeführt, belogen und selbst gute Mitarbeiter gekündigt, wenn sich die Strategie mal wieder geändert hat. Das funktioniert auch gut mit dem liechtensteiner Arbeitsschutzgesetz. Dies hat sich in den letzten Jahren, vielleicht auch durch die Vergrößerung der Firma, verschlimmert.

Pros

Tolle Produkte

Cons

Umgang mit Mitarbeitern in der Konzernzentrale

terrible management

Very CRM (Salesforce) driven company, managements main focus is on sales reports and meeting to go over sales. They want to know what you are doing every hour of the day and make sure it is reported in Salesforce. There is a lot of duplication of effort and not a lot of time meeting with your customers face to face, more time sitting at your computer.

Pros

None

Cons

Poorly managed.

Good for growth so long as you try

Great company that will promote you so long as you show that you are committed to sales and the product. Lots of room for opportunities in different divisions of construction. Some management is worthless but the solid compensation and "choose you own adventure" career path and day to day schedule makes up for it.

Pros

Easy work life balance. You get to see some wild stuff on job sites

Cons

Compensation has changed with tough times

Great company, high expectations

The company is always innovating and bringing new products to the market, giving you the ability as a salesperson to sell value and demand a premium - the company is always looking for growth and will challenge you, they expect alot, if you're not competitive with a drive to win, you'll have a tough time... some people thrive in that environment and those people will thrive here

Manager will do what they need to do to fall in line

manager will not care about you. This is a what have you done for me today! Your manage will cove his/her back and not you! If you want to work for them ask to ride with someone that is new and old.

Stable company

A place for people who wants to settle down and not move. Dont expect the highest salary packages. But work life balance would be provided at its best. Lot of nepotism and politics within management

Pros

Work life balance

Cons

Low salary

Employees often quit a bad boss, not the company

Great workplace culture, friendly co workers in person. Events often held pre-Covid with yearly gifts for Christmas/Birthdays/Job anniversaries (this has changed slightly since Covid due to budgeting) separate from yearly bonuses. Company will hold lunch and learns, food drives, angel trees etc. Random small events will be held ex. free donuts, free snow cones, summer BBQs, food trucks, Oktoberfest (with no booze, the events have also changed post Covid.)Interviews are very tough, if you can, request a ride a long for the position you are interested in virtually or physically and ask interview advice from current employees. The ride along will help to gauge your interest in the position and possibly make a good impression with other employees. Be sure to ask your recruiter for what the interview format is.Communication between different departments can be rough, commonly different departments are not fond of one another.The company is all about placing you in another "seat" if you aren't loving your current position. The thing is, you will not be moved to another position unless you are doing well in your current position. So if you find yourself not performing as desired you will not likely find assistance unless you can improve your performance. OR if you have an advocate that believes in your abilities. Something I wish I did was network more before I left (LinkedIn) and better record the successes I had and positive improvements I made. Overall a great company with some cons depending on your circumstances.The Cons I had were too long for the Con section:- - 

Pros

Great culture, great company, good benefits

Cons

Some bad management, culture of overworking, *quietly* prefers working in person vs. at home

Work life balance but stressful deadlines

Great flexible work schedule and always time to take care of personal items. They are very considerate of personal needs. Work can be a bit stressful but you are given the tools to succeed.

Pros

Work/life balance

Cons

Streesful deadlines
Was this review helpful?

Very stressful.

The new CRM system is set up to micro manage and not assist with sales..... Its very time consuming and and everything is duplicated.Everyone is only concerned about themselves and no one challenges as they dont want to be seen as negative or a trouble causer.

Pros

You can use their tools for DIY

Cons

No worklife balance due the amount if admin the new crm system has caused.

Pricing Can Be A Deal Killer

Compensation Package Not Good This Year. Promotions and Territory success is based on favoritism. Management approve account adjustments to make sure some AM’s are promoted to the next AM level at the end of each year. Hilti is different than it was several years ago. Bring back the 2019 Bonus Plan.

Pros

Company Vehicle

Cons

Price Can Be A Deal Breaker

Solid Company

Hilti is a good organization. They do care about the people that work there. Not all, but most of the leadership is solid. The culture has taken a step backward but will come back with time.
