Upper management doesn’t understand that their people are the ones that make the company, they are the face of the company, and earn customer trust and respect

Unorganized, no room for advancement

Management is unorganized and doesn't care about their employees. You have no clear path for improvement or advancement. You have to be in the click or you won't get treated well.

Next man up attitude

Was a huge relief to my mental state when I left. Truly nothing else to add here. Nothing about the company was fulfilling. It wasn't always like that but it turned fast.

Stressful and high pressure

Revolving door for techs, low pay and long hours. No work/family balance. Lots of issues and politics in the office. It was good to travel to different sites and see different facilities, but the pressure from upper management and the lack of competency made the job not worth it.

Pros

Good health benefits

Cons

Long hours, lots of stress

Good benefits

Good benefits, but not always 40hr work week available, depending on location. Great management concept, but not followed at all branches. Their attitude is you are easily replaceable.

Going downhill

Used to be a great place to work but management is now utterly incompetent. They tout a culture of safety first but throw a fit when concerns are brought forward. The job is dangerous and they should listen to the people in the field who know what they need, stop creating obstacles and practice what they preach.

Pros

Benefits, training (pre-covid)

Cons

Big egos in management, parts dept is inept

Great culture

Good company to work with. Unsure of other experiences from previous employees, but I felt as I was given a large amount of tools and support to thrive in my position. It is a great work culture to be a part of and as a member of the BDR team, you learn to balance the skill of sales, customer service, communication, and multi-tasking. You will notice yourself evolving little by little as the days go on. Great company to work with.

Pros

Good pay, good work culture, good tools for work

Cons

None

Management needs improvement

Working for Konecranes was a excellent opportunity with wonderful pay and benefits. Management is unorganized and sometimes unresponsive. There is too much favoritism, work place drama and not enough team work. It is hard to tell who is in charge, everyone acts like they are until a problem arises. When left to do the job you are assigned, without interferences from people who aren't your supervisor, the job was enjoyable and there was a feeling of accomplishment.

Pros

Good pay and benefits

Cons

Good pay. Long hours

A typical was only measured by how many inspections were due and the number oh crane breakdowns accrued. You were provided with good company training. Management varied by the individual. there were good and bad. Culture Get it done yesterday. There many undesirable enviroments to work in. very hot to very cold. The most enjoyable thing was payday.

Pros

Pay and benefits were good.

Cons

long hours on the job.

Good job, but could be better.

I liked the job at first, but once they learn you can get stuff done, they work you to death. Being a go to guy is great, but the pay doesn’t reflect your worth! Very interesting job with lots of different things to see and do. I loved it in the beginning, but my branch manager that hired me moved up to upper management in Savanaha ports, and the Evansville branch was never the same!Lots and lots of overtime, but I believe now they have limits on hours. Do they work it in your favor or not?You would have to judge for yourself, from your own experience if you work there. Their is a lot of good people and the company overall is good.

Pros

Lots of training, and skills learned.

Cons

Doesn’t pay well.

Overall I believe that a few bad leaders make the company horrible to work for. My experience was that my direct supervisor could not communicate well and blocked the path to speak to the next level supervisor. This made the overall experience unpleasant.

Very Steady Workplace

Overall, Konecranes Nuclear was a good place to work. Individual managers genuinely care about their employees and the base benefits package is great. What the company lacks is a sense of culture. The average day consist of 8-9 hours sitting in a cubicle listening to your neighbor chew food and slurp coffee. Travel to construction sites or customer sites happens on occasion, but the jobs here are very design heavy (not a negative for everybody, just something to note). If you are looking for a place to settle down that has great benefits and steady work, this is the place. If you are looking for excitement and culture, you may find the company lacking.

Pros

Excellent management in Engineering department, free lunches once a month, excellent benefits and PTO, optional 9/80 schedule

Cons

High work load, complete lack of company culture, corporate management has little connection to individual location.

Office staff was toxic

The person who trained me in the office often withheld important information about the specifics of customers' billing. I overheard conversations several that were demeaning spreading rumors about me to management.

Pros

I received a paycheck

Cons

Work is very interesting

No work life balance and the pay is below average. You wear a lot of hats and the training to get you up to speed is lacking. You need to come in with a get it done yourself mentality. Don't look for help.

Pros

Work is super interesting, you only have to be a little better than the competition

Cons

Below average pay, you will work every day till you drop

Excellent Benefits

Amazing benefits, incredibly difficult to meet or exceed. Ability to work from home a least one day a week. Managers can be micromanagers, but worth it to be able to work from home.
