    Current Employee - Account Manager III in Odessa, MO (US)

    I have been working at Hilti USA full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Recognized as a quality tool
    Values college degree
    Competition copies
    Training on products
    Tend to hire good people
    If your family doesn't mind moving, it can be an ok place to work.
    Good company for 2-3 years then go to a better company.

    Cons

    Pay is very low
    Negative attitude of management.
    Management is incompetent and they poke fun at their subordinates. No direction and no help after basic training. Revolving door of managers.
    Quarterly changes to how people are paid causes a deep lack of trust.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hilti needs a complete replacement of division managers, general managers, and ceo. Morale of field salespeople will soar once competent managers are in place that appreciate Hilti and truly care about teamwork. Compared to other companies I have been with, this leadership is pathetic in how it treats people and poor in managing day to day operations. Stop changing territories so much. In my 4 years so far with Hilti, I have had 3 Regional Managers. Two of them knew nothing about Hilti, construction, or how to sell an expensive product. Move away from your laptops and lead. We will follow you if you start setting an example and give us reason to trust you.
