Kone coal valley escalator division
Lead production welder (Current Employee) –  Coal Valley, ILMarch 13, 2017
Very close knit group of guys on the shop, upper management seems to shift hands every two years but overall a very enjoyable workplace alot of room for advancement and very willing to build up and train the employees that they have rather than outsourcing. Alot of employees with 20+ years but for me it was a great place to start and quite possibly retire from myself
Pros
Seem to be trying to keep the "newer experienced" employees, and offering a early out for some of the guys that have been there 25+++ years
Cons
You never know when the next lay off is

A large Drafting Department of over 50 people working together
Engineering Systems (Former Employee) –  McKinney, TXMarch 13, 2017
I stated off as a contract programmer assigned to debug the existing programs and find out what was causing the existing programs to crash. The problem was caused by a C++ programmer redefining the symbol PI as 180 instead of leaving it as 3.14159... They later sent me to Italy for three months to help write Elevators programs that would write in installation information in 15 different languages.

Call center agent (Former Employee) –  Moline, ILMarch 2, 2017
I love the work area, the staff and management was great and patience to show you hands on work!

The most hardest part about the job was figuring out the different screens but after a week or so it became very easy and fluent.

I loved working with others, we all helped each other in any situation we need assistance in

Work Harder, Not work Smarter Mentality
Quality Technician (Current Employee) –  Allen, TXSeptember 27, 2016
For a company that has been around a long time, I am really surprised how unorganized the company is. There are too many people in charge and not enough people to do actual, real work.
Pros
Work days, work hours
Cons
Unorganized, decisons made are not based on data or facts

Many opportunities to be successful. It is relatively easy to relocate around the country if you are flexible for moving and are willing to put in the work.

Doesn't want to address real issues
Current Employee (Current Employee) –  Pacific NorthwestJuly 15, 2016
Some companies believe they can keep doing the same thing, with the same people, and get different results. Stick to taking care of customers, value good employee's and profits will follow.

Doing more with less
Manager (Current Employee) –  Beltsville, MDMarch 18, 2016
Company is all about doing more with less. Employees wear too many hats, very stressful environment.There is too many managers, and not enough support. Managers don't want to listen and are not from the elevator trade. They come up with ideas that don't always make sense b/c of this. This makes for even harder environment for employees. Company is constantly a revolving door especially in DC. Once people see what it is about they want nothing to do with the place. People leave pretty much every 2 years if not sooner.Too many meetings not enough time to get anything done. Training consists of more meetings where you are left thinking "what did I just sit through"? You are left feeling like you learned nothing, and that they just want to say they trained you. Meanwhile while you sit in all these micro managed type meetings, you are still held to getting everything done.
Pros
some good people
Cons
bad management, too many hats
