Configuration Owner Service Now (Former Employee) –  West Allis, WISeptember 7, 2018
Overall this is a good company. If my manager had not changed, I would still be working there. Although this was a global position, it was a bit difficult to get answers the same day.
Pros
Good co workers
Cons
Management overseas

No communication for documentation department
Document Specialist (Former Employee) –  Springfield, OH 45505August 21, 2018
No communication, understaffed, uneducated supervisors, and the pay (for being a billion dollar company) is pathetic. Even if you have a 4 year degree
Pros
They buy you food occasionally. Company events
Cons
Workload is very heavy for just one person.

Bad Moral
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Springfield, OHAugust 20, 2018
The culture at this company changed when the company began to restructure. many long term management team members were let go and not very confidentially or respectfully. the morale in general was very bad among employees and was very hard to find anyone with anything positive to say about the company. I left because it was just toxic.
Pros
Clean work space
Cons
Bad bad morale

Value oriented and highly marketable learning experience
Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Addison, ILAugust 14, 2018
Working for Konecranes gave me the opportunity to deepen my understanding of rotating equipment and develop marketable practices in electrical and mechanical maintenance. The firm gave me the freedom to express myself and my unique quality standards to the customer through the maintenance and installation of their industrial cranes and hoist units. The firm was well managed and international collaboration and information sharing were supported by my management.
Pros
Training, learning, rewarding
Cons
Lack of schedule control

District Inside Sales/Contract Retention (Former Employee) –  Longview, TXAugust 8, 2018
I worked 50-70 hours per week with no respect for my time or family life. Grossly underpaid with no appreciation ever presented. Lack of leadership within the office. It is pretty much a circus on a daily basis with no communication.

Crane Technician/Inspector/Instructor (Former Employee) –  Richmond, VAJuly 24, 2018
Used to be a good company to work for. New management ruined it. Could not plan work efficiently. Worked excessive hours due to poor planning. Manager thought he knew it all and was never wrong.

Small town atmosphere in a big corporation
Production Planner (Current Employee) –  Watertown, WIJuly 18, 2018
Typical working day can be hectic before lunch, but slow paced after. The learning is kind of short and sweet and the only way to learn more is on your own. Culture is a kind of that is what we've done before, so why change now. I do not feel there are great advancement opportunities.

Nice work truck
Technician (Former Employee) –  Appleton, WIJune 28, 2018
Long hours, asked to work weekends with little notice, on call rotational schedule, provide your own tools at your cost, tools for bigger jobs were not provided, not much support from management, all about the numbers not about the people, nice work truck that you take home with you every night, pay was fair but not great, dangerous work environments with high levels of heat and noise, no procedures for work just go do it, only tools provided were harness, hard hat, 3 screw drivers and gloves. Could be a wonderful place to work if management would communicate with technicians.
Pros
Paid holidays, work truck, pay for drive time key on to key off, great benefits
Cons
bad managment, no loyalty, never have the proper tools, constant bickering between technicians

No room for new bright ideas. Just the same inefficient protocols expecting different results. No time to have a personal life. You are always tied to your phone.

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
