Excessive travel and minimal compensation
Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 31, 2018
Position offered with 25% travel, There has not been one month that I have not been made to travel since employed.
Excessive meetings as immediate supervisor is a micro-managing type manager.
The role of the position is that of held accountable but no authority.
Hardest part to deal with is a lack of passion to successfully complete the project from own internal team.

Stress and bad pay
Welder/Fabricator (Former Employee) –  Franklin, OHMay 28, 2018
When I work at Lima it was unsafe and bad pay. I started out as a temp making more money than when they hired me. Very stressful and very bad leadership. Would not recommend working for this company.

This place sucks
Cycle Counter (Current Employee) –  Springfield, OHMay 25, 2018
This place is poorly managed and you are well underpaid. There is hardly any advancement in this company. They would rather spend 10k a week on food for everyone then to pay a solid 50c a year to its employees. Yes that is maybe 15c on average every year you have as a raise.

High Stress with little to no direction!!!
Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) –  East Berlin, CTMay 18, 2018
Beware, The new leadership as of 2016 was all about the profits. They cared little for the actual people providing the service and doing the work. The particular branch I worked in was managed by an absent manager that expected his branch to run without him at the helm. Pre 2016 the company culture was very good.
Pros
okay benefits
Cons
Poor Leadership

Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Springfield, OHMay 2, 2018
Company is supposed to have an “open door policy” for all upper management however more times than notnyoure unable to get a managers help as they’re always in a meeting or they have their door shut. The departments run in clicks if you’re not a part of one of them the employees act extremely rude to you and always catch an attitude when asking for help. They do give out quarterly bonuses which depends on a variety of things. The company spends a LOT of money on lunches for very few departments. For instance the crane department NEVER got lunches bought for them ACCEPT close to Christmas via the supervisor but the FSSC has lunches monthly after or before month end and at least 2 time prior every month. There goes a part of the quarterly bonuses for others!
Pros
Quite place
Cons
Definitely self dependent

Horrible

Everything requires approval from several different "managers". The littlest task will take forever. The software they use is awful and not at all user friendly.
Pros
Relaxed Office Setting
Cons
Very Frustrating & Cumbersome

Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Cayce, SCMarch 22, 2018
Good training, dangerous job due to nature of equipment.
Coworkers willing to train new employees; for the most part.
Company is big in safety, they provide most of the safety equipment

Overhead Crane Technician (Current Employee) –  Wichita, KSMarch 14, 2018
A great company over all but truly depends on the management. If you are based out of Tulsa, as your management you will get no support what so ever but all of the blame

Good place to gain experiance but not a long term option for some
Electrical/Maintenance Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Winchester, VAFebruary 10, 2018
Some days could be long. Pay was the worst part about this position and a very high turn over rate that they don't mind. Very good training though if you are just starting out in the trade. Having a typical family life outside of this job can be challenging. The line of work was most of the time enjoyable and challenging at the same time. If pay wasn't as big of an issue I would probably still be with company. As a small shop we all worked together and was able to rely on each other when we needed a extra hand.
Pros
Training, Benefits
Cons
Pay, long days

Great job with great benefits, but no work schedule stability
Service Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Birmingham, ALFebruary 8, 2018
Konecranes is an excellent place to work with regard to benefit package, pay, and flexibility. There is no time clock to punch, so taking time off to take care of personal business can be managed. But, however, there is an on call rotation, which means that you have to be able to work at any time. Also, there is no real work schedule, as this business is customer driven. You have a difficult time scheduling life around this job as there are no set work days/hours, so you never know when you will have to work, or when you will be off.
Pros
Lots of available hours to work
Cons
Lots of available hours to work involuntarily

Fast paced, highly competitive
Planner/Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNFebruary 5, 2018
Konecranes is an excellent company to work for at a corporate level. Locally, the management team seems to play favorites to people in their circle. They will try to start you out at as low a salary as possible and then raises are difficult to obtain. Konecranes is the elite when it comes to overhead cranes and hoists but competition is intense. Work/life balance is a little sketchy but then it is a customer service business. Work is cyclical in that we are very busy and have more work than we can do at times and then we struggle to get technicians more than 30 hours per week at other times.
Pros
Excellent benefits including 401k.
Cons
Long, hard hours, pay is less than industry standard

The kind of job you dream about
Industrial Electrician Technician, Overhead Cranes (Former Employee) –  Sunrise, FLJanuary 24, 2018
I was very lucky when I had the chance to work for Konecranes. It's just the kind of high level of organization company you would love to work at.
The only reason I left was because I was getting low working hours a week for a long period of time.
Pros
Benefits, organization, sallary
Cons
Random work

Service Technician/inspector (Former Employee) –  Beaumont, TX/Sulphur,La.January 21, 2018
Was let go in 2016 for a small safety infraction, was hired back a year later, then in January, someone somewhere decided I didn’t need to work there. How do you hire someone on through a temp service and then decide that you aren’t needed? I always did my job and put the time in to get jobs done. Can’t even get someone in HR or district management to call you back. Yes there is some good old boy stuff going around and had trouble getting parts.
Pros
Truck, phone, trainin
Cons
District management, bad HR response time
