Awesome company
Service Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAMarch 23, 2019
You get out exactly what you put in. KONE allows you freedom to operate independently but has metrics you need to hit. Face-paced, stressful environment but is rewarding and lucrative.

Pros
flexible hours, good benefits

KONE is the best company I worked at during my time in the Elevators Union!
Elevator Apprentice (Former Employee) –  San Leandro, CAFebruary 2, 2019
KONE is the proper example of a company that gets things done while building a lasting brotherhood through hard work and careful execution. I would recommend it to any qualified and capable workers in the field.

Poor management, good work culture. Typically a busy day at work and varies depending on the project. If the management was good then it was a good place to work for.

Kone as a whole
Repair superintendent in charge of the following (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJanuary 16, 2019
Kone as a whole is a fabulous company, although once arriving to the Phoenix AZ branch i found that the management skills and mission statements are not followed. the overall turn around of employees is very high and if you one is not part of the click, then to be outstanding is not liked or allowed.

Great Company
Account Manager (Former Employee) –  Linthicum, MDJanuary 8, 2019
Amazing sales training program in Moline, IL. Was taught the industry and the business and was set up for success. Unfortunately, not all branches are created equal. Lack of support once I was placed in my branch.

Deep culture change affected everyone that worked in the office
Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) –  TexasJanuary 1, 2019
The amount of work increased exponentially in recent years. They've brought up many engineering/design employees from Mexico in recent years to offices in America. Office personality went from a team mentality, "let's get it done" and a group that cared about one another and the whole group's success. Management and culture change brought with it a change that affected the outlook of all the office staff - they went from a smiling bunch throughout the work day to no smiles and no laughter. Upper management didn't want to hear about the dissatisfaction of the employees.
Pros
innovation, strict controls on models
Cons
corporate culture, rapid changing policies & practices

Fair employer and good development opportunities
Service business director (Former Employee) –  Saint-PetersburgDecember 4, 2018
KONE offers exeptional opportunities for those who are willing to contribute back. Though decision-making process is excessively formalized. In general the company tends to reduce personality impact towards standardization in many areas.

The elevator World
Service Superintendent (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVSeptember 22, 2018
Kone was a great place to work with major opportunities. Great coworkers. Working hours were 6am until you were done. The only issue was there was no time off. Superintendents are required to work 24/7 even when on vacation. Major issues with stress and upper management seemed to not care about hours worked.
Pros
Great people to work with
Cons
Too many hours sometimes being 60-70 hours a week.

Unfortunately, only certain people could advance in this company. The rest of us, were belittled and made to feel replaceable at a drop of a dime. It made for long days and weeks.
