Excellent Products to Sell, Upper Management Out of Touch

Safety MDP (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXJune 28, 2016
This job was great to get me into the safety world and see what it is all about. Although it did not work out for certain reasons I am glad to have been able to get the opportunity to learn.

No appreciation for tenure employees
Office Personnel (Current Employee) –  MWSJune 16, 2016
Management at a branch level is amazing. Great teamwork, branch manager shows appreciation to all employees. Unfortunately branch managers and district managers seem to not be able to make a lot of decisions without involving upper management (Regional & VP). Which I do not understand especially for a long time employee who had an interview for a new position but wayyyy upper management has to give approval for a very low pay increase for a "promotion". For the amount of work and dedication that employee's at our branch put in and taking work home and not getting extra pay, upper management does not care to compensate hard working employees which is very unfortunate. They also highly discriminate against women and under pay them significantly which I have seen done to many employee's. It seems upper management believe that you can always be replaced with someone cheaper. Instead of valuing hard working employees and appreciating them, they seem to only have money on their minds and think of ways of how to hire someone younger for much cheaper no matter how well you do your job.
Pros
Excellent Health Insurance
Cons
Discrimination against women, very low pay, no appreciation to dedicated hard working employees

Great workplace environment and management
Site Supervisor and Electrical Engineer (Current Employee) –  Corpus Christi, TXJune 9, 2016
High paced environment, lots of travel only for highly motivated self driven personnel. Hardest part of the job is advancement into management. Best part is finding solutions for customers and seeing them be grateful for the service or advise you have provided them, bonuses don't hurt either.
Pros
Company vehicle, overtime, gas card, paid for travel, training program, great benefits, 401k w company matching%, company shares and company cell phone
Cons
Low chance of advancement, long hours, on call schedule every 2 months.

Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Toledo, OHApril 4, 2016
A typical work day involves solving problems. I have learned to manage my time very well. The most enjoyable part is satisfying customers. The most difficult part is the transformation of new talent. There is a very large turnover rate.

good place to work
Crane technician (Former Employee) –  Erie, PAMarch 24, 2016
I learned alot working for Konecranes. Electrical/mechanical assembly, repair and maintenance. I mostly did inspections and PM's on all cranes. Hardest part of the job was the travel.
The most enjoyable part was satisfying the customers needs and getting their production back up and running. I had the opportunity to work at Perry Nuclear facility during their outage.
Pros
company vehicle and cell phone
Cons
lots of traveling

Crane Technician (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMarch 4, 2016
Constant battle with management on listening to the technicians. Nice being able to bring work truck home. Left to make some decisions on your own. Most of the time you cal leave from home straight to job site.Some days more driving than actual work.
Pros
Can bring work truck home and good benefits.
Cons
attention to safety concerns. Management has own agenda.

SERVICE SUPERVISOR/SERVICE PLANNER (Current Employee) –  Cayce, SCFebruary 4, 2016
Konecranes is a wonderful place to work if you have the right management. Like all jobs, what you get out of it depends heavily on what you bring to the table. Working on overhead cranes is difficult, messy, dangerous and stressful, but getting a customer up and running again is a wonderful feeling.

Egotistical management, office bound and clueless
Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Great Lakes RegionJanuary 31, 2016
Working with veteran techs is difficult due to the fact that the safety of all involved usually rests on them. Makes them miserable and hostile. Nerve wracking when many feet above the floor in precarious positions. Lots of yelling and name calling. It trickles down from the highest management levels. It truly runs downhill.
Rules of engagement change at an alarming rate, tough to keep up with the rule of the day. Safety is a word, not a practice in many cases, though it is situational. Management is in CYA mode, don't give a hoot about you or your issues. Inspections at customer sites are a joke. NO TIME to do it correctly, get the paperwork pencil whipped and get the bill sent out, oh and don't forget to generate some quotes while you are at the customer...........
Pros
Excellent training, decent pay
Cons
NO BREAKS, arrogant management at the branch level

This is a company that is full of people that are tired and beat up. So much negativity. The amount of turnover is unbelievable. I hope the merger will help this company. They sure need help.

Do not leave a job to come here.
service supervisor (Former Employee) –  Kenilworth, NJDecember 29, 2015
Very unorganized company. They had job folders & parts that laid around over a year & I was expected to make it all work. I did not receive any guidance from the original manager & the salesman was a lazy mope. The manager quit & it took months to replace him. The girl in the office is a back stabber. She gains your trust & talks about the company behind there back. Than she tells the district manager what you said. I was blamed for a lot of theft when in fact they found the thief recently. STAY AWAY!
Pros
401 K
Cons
ON CALL & YOU DO NOT GET COMPENSATED

A company where Safety comes FIRST!
Lead/ Senior Crane Technician (Current Employee) –  Cayce, SCDecember 19, 2015
Konecranes is a great employer! A typical day is going to a customer's site to work or install on their overhead hoist. Normally you are working with another tech sometimes two, but everyone pulls their weight and works as a team. Everyone tries to help one another learn and succeed. Konecranes will send you to training to learn if you need better clarification or want to learn something different that can better help you excel with the company. As I have worked with this company, they are became more than just a place to work, they have became my family. Konecranes always puts safety first, no job is so important that you should put yourself or others in danger to complete job.
Pros
Job security, incentives, work truck, training, SAFETY
Cons
Road work, long hours, stress, out of town, working at very high heights
