No longer a good company to work for!
District (Former Employee) – United States – January 19, 2018
I worked at Konecranes for 14 years. The first 4 years were wonderful. Family friendly, and employees were treated with respect.In the last 10 years I went thru 2 mergers, both were not pretty. There was a lot of lies and back stabbing, mostly from management and higher. When the President of the Americas retired, Konecranes made a major shift. Employees did not matter, just the bottom line. I understand that this is a business and they want to make money, but at the cost of treating employees with NO respect.
I was let go because of "Performance" and "Time off". Just 2 months prior to that I was given a merit raise. I was not approached at all about my performance, prior to letting me go.
I usually worked 50-60 hours a week (Salary), but in the last 4 months, I did not work as many hours. I wanted a life. I believe that I was let go because I was not willing to but in the long hours, and I questioned upper management. Like they wanted me to sweep some shading work, under the carpet. Something I cannot do when there are several policies being broken.
Current employees that have been there over 10 years, are walking on eggshells, wondering when they will be the next to be cut. I could go on and on about how this company has changed for the worse, but there is not enough time, or space to write it all down.
Co-workers (Excluding Management), Great Benefits (However that is changing as well)
Management, double standards and not being honest, Shading practices, disrespect employees, Very stressfu
