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.
Value oriented and highly marketable learning experience
Service Technician (Former Employee) – Addison, IL – August 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.

District Inside Sales/Contract Retention (Former Employee) – Longview, TX – August 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.
Production Planner (Current Employee) – Watertown, WI – July 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.
Technician (Former Employee) – Appleton, WI – June 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.
Paid holidays, work truck, pay for drive time key on to key off, great benefits
bad managment, no loyalty, never have the proper tools, constant bickering between technicians
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.
Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) – East Berlin, CT – May 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.
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!
