Great products, tough bonuses!

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Good company, great products and solutions for construction customers. Recent pay changes make attaining bonuses a bit harder and possibly cause some turnover.


Best in class products.


Pricing can be a deal killer at times. Confusing pay and promotional criteria.

You can earn more at a different company with the same benefits.

Pros: Coworkers are great people, corporate locations have full coffee bars (though not free). There is a lot of diversity in the company- Black/Latinx/LGBTQ+/Women-led Affinity groups. Global company means possible opportunities to work internationally.Cons: The monetary compensation has never been great for anyone in the North American part of the company. Many people have jumped ship since the pandemic began to wind down due to the company's strict rules about WFH and mandatory office days. They aren't backfilling a lot of positions due to a tight hiring budget, which leaves employees with a massive workload and no extra pay to show for it. There is an extremely overworked and falsely positive culture in the company. Lastly, getting a good manager is basically like roulette. Not all managers are held to very high standards or checked in on very often, so management quality is absolutely not consistent. This could very negatively impact your work ethic and burnout rate if you roll poorly and are stuck with a manager who doesn't take managing a team seriously.

Great atmosphere!

Enjoyable to not bring work home with you. Great trainings provided to teach the job, go as far as your willing to train, very transparent with what is going on within the company. I’d definitely recommend.


Work Life balance, growth opportunity, No Weekend

Not a great environment

No room for advancement unless you have an irrelevant degree. Management will either exploit you, try to get with you, and if they can’t, target you Management - does not help resolve issues - they create more Time every movement you make and write you up if they dislike you/ will target you if they dislike you. So you always have to be on your toes. Don’t talk to any other employee about anything because they will run right back to management. You can trust no one who works thereThey don’t appreciate the good workers they have - they’d rather hire outsiders who have irrelevant experience then promote the amazing hard workers who are already employed there. Very unorganized and expect the lower level employees to run the show. Point fingers environment instead of take action and rectify. Their culture is meaningless.


Celebrate holidays with free lunches made by employees, providing catering during certain holidays .. Yearly small raises


Short breaks, long walks to each department, horrid management

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.

Price Can Be A Deal Breaker

This company is a joke. Management will lie and steal to make themselves look good. They get bonuses when employees get promoted but they don’t care if you work hard.

Good Place to Work

A solid company to work for with great benefits. Work life balance is very good here and can be flexible when things come up. Company likes to promote within, so a lot of opportunity to move into other roles if you're mobile.


Benefits, Work-Life Balance, Comp is decent


Tough to earn promotions

Fun but fast paced

It was fun while it lasted. Unfortunately with covid, no guest no work. Management was great in my dept. Was also fun seeing people get excited at something we look at everyday, reminder not to take what we have for granted. That's all I got to say about that.


Learn new skills from different departments, co workers can keep you motivated, director's can be fair


Extremely strict guidelines (understandable), some guest may have forgotten that we are people, pay can be alittle higher in some areas

Solid company

Company promotes from within. If you are willing to travel there are unlimited possibilities. During COVID they did not lay anyone off and ensured everyone received proper pay. Lots of training - takes about 2 years to become fully vested in training.


Great company with growth potential. Salary + Bonus structure


Lots of metrics to focus on

An amazing family culture

Hilti is an international company with a lot of ambition and successful strategies. Although they have been able to keep the family culture that makes you feel at home. The quality of its products makes it proud to work for.


The culture, the products


Salary, employee promotion

Work here

Hilti was perfect from the culture to living the standard of employees first. I would always go back unfortunately I parted ways due to COVID and down sizing however they did everything they could to help me and my family in the transition. I love hilti and it’s people and hope I can return some day

Great place to begin a career

Hilti provides a great structure to develop new team members. There are numerous opportunities to perform and advance from entry level positions to mid-management positions. A great place to begin a career and develop the necessary skills to become a leader in numerous organizations.


Good people and culture, structured training program


Work/life balance, pay related to job responsibilities, growth of organization is challenging the culture

Who you know not what you know.

9/10 times people get promoted based on who they know and not what the know. Also you could hit target 10 years in a row but that one year you missed target, you get fired for lack of performance. Hilti has a lot of turnover but unwilling to look at the managers as to why? When a football team is not performing over a long period of time, the manager is looked at but in Hilti, they would get rid of the players. It is a great company, product, service but with many times than none, with a bad leader. Because you finished your target at 200% does not mean you now have the experience to lead a team. You could have walked in to an emerging territory.

poor management team

Management team keep on changing and they doesn't seems to know what they want. Although its a MNC, the company operates like a SMC. HR function was in a mess and there are multiple instance of late & wrong salary payment.

Not a bad company

typical day for an engineer starts off with answering customers enquiries and troubleshooting and also recommendation of products. engineers are usually the go to people whenever help is required by the sales or marketing side.
