Maintenance Administrator | Mumbai, Maharashtra | 3 Jul 2013
very co-operative and good workplace
basically i was working with Ms Word, Ms excel and PowerPoint. Support to the repair orders related process. Correspondence with customers and follow-up for repair quotations and commercial complaints through mails and calls. Processing vendor bills for payment as per the terms and purchase orders. Using SAP ERP 6.0 for processing bills and maintain record in excel. Preparing cash memos for the repair quotation payments. Processing employees and technician’s time sheets and daily expense statements and maintain technical data for the same. Keeping the record of the various documents both in the physical and electronic form. I would like to thank my previous company for giving me opportunity to learn, enhance and prove myself. Co-workers was very co-operative and they still have in touch with me on phone and mails. there were so many functions during office time like birthday parties, traditional functions, competitions, fun games and all.

Good company to work for people beyond 40's & women employees
On Safety:- KONE as an organization enforces paramount importance on physical and psychological safety. On KONE's Culture:- Like the Finnish society, the culture in the organization is also not overly formal & hierarchical. This egalitarian mindset also takes care of the diversity & inclusiveness at the office. The blend of Indian culture with a Finnish workplace framework has created a strong employee experience in the entire KONE India organization
ProsGood work life balance, Lot of Internal Job rotation policies, Highly professional Finnish team

Enthusiastic and social workpalce
In my review my workplace is very enthusiastic and friendly, everyone is reflecting positive energy in working atmosphere. A typical day of my work was when some machinery equipment was reached late to my working site due to some transportation problem. I learned through my work how to handle the difficult situation and make myself and my co-worker out of it. The management of my company is very cooperative and appreciable. All my co-workers are dedicated to work. The hardest part of my work when client did not gave us a proper environment and delay of work due to their lacking.The most enjoyable part is when work is completed before time.

Productive and better place to work
Most of the things are covered in name as Kone is the world known for the elevators and escalators. Though I was only recruited as Modernization Sales Engineer still I have received complete raining on all the product range of the company and that certainly a addition to my knowledge. Management is very supportive and caring. My colleagues are also very helpful and completely believe in company's policy to win together. Hardest part of the job is only you, if you are willing to do things nothing is that hard I believe. Most enjoyable part was that every new day brought something new for me to learn.

High pressure environment.
Great opportunity to earn great money. Friendly staff, friendly peers. Hired to manage at a specific jurisdiction& branch, with assigned duties. Quickly wound up at a far away branch "temporarily" doing everything short of pulling permits, and having to sacrifice ALL of my spare time and family life to try and save jobs in the red that were simply "dumped" on me after the initial first few weeks. I know how to recognize a scapegoat. The writing was on the wall before the cap even came off the VP's pen. -We will use you like a tool until you break or don't work anymore- Bust your butt and go the extra mile, but you'll quickly grow exhausted and someone else without a clue will fill your shoes. Rinse and repeat ad infinitum. It is simply ran too lean to be sustainable. Day 2 of computer training in a cubicle for 8+hours a day listening to a buzzing robotic voice that gives you nausea was the first clear sign that this job was going to be one where you're on your own for everything, and still accountable for things things you inherited, or have no influence over. Week 3 was when it was obvious why the previous incumbent quit after 25 years. month 6 and I finally manned up and called my predecessor. It was a fruitful lengthy insightful conversation. The most rewarding 4-1/2 hours I ever had there. Drafted up my resignation shortly after the call. They say that people don't quit jobs, they quit people. Well in this case that was actually not the case! At least not for me. Th

Versatile Projects with the chance of growing within the company
The work place was exciting for most of the projects I worked on were in a pilot phase, where there was a need to think and act in a certain way. My job was to build new elevators, manage a team and communicate with the building site managers to co-use the working area as optimal as possible without hindering each other. I learned a lot during my time with Kone, before I came to Kone I had a little experience at managing a project. Kone guided me through the phases of doing this and I think that this made me to a far better person for the work I did later. Also I learned a lot about electrics, I wasn't properly educated as an electrician but at some point and after the trainings I received I developed my electrical skills to a satisfactory level. The management of Kone was friendly, of course there were targets to achieve but if those targets were made there was a relaxed atmosphere where there was room for ideas and support (both on a professional and personal level). Kone was strict in keeping its employers up to date for when it came to training therefor it was required to do several trainings, also they promoted extra training like fault finding and first aid. During the time I worked there we had meetings for at least twice a year to discuss what we wanted from each other and to see if there was anything that could be done to make things easier. My co-workers were sometimes people hired through agencies, here were people that didn't quite meet the needs for the

Mechanic | Markham, ON | 27 Jan 2023
lots of opportunity to learn, incredibly toxic industry
As a repair mechanic, work was assigned day-to-day. At times, the supervisor would be scrambling to figure out where to send you. Often times there was little to no support from the office and we were left to organize jobs on our own (parts acquisitions, obtaining PO's from other office staff, coordinating and scheduling equipment rentals/deliveries from suppliers and other service providers). Management was often at odds with each other. Field staff are undervalued and considered replaceable. Apprentices are often coerced into performing tasks that they shouldn't be doing with the possibility of getting laid off. As a licensed mechanic, management will threaten to make your life miserable if you don't do as you're told. Supervisors with no industry experience are preferred over those that have worked in the field. This guarantees that those without experience do as they're told without question. Nepotism and favoritism runs rampant within Kone and within the industry. When meeting someone, the question "Who are you related to?" was often the follow up after giving my name and the department I worked for. There is great opportunity to learn in the industry. There are plenty of passionate and kind people who are willing to share their knowledge with others that want to learn. If you want to work with a company that will value your skill and ability, and you as a person; look elsewhere.
ProsSafety oriented work place
ConsPoorly managed, supervisors and managers not willing to take accountability

Maintenance Mechanic | Canberra ACT | 12 Apr 2016
Decent products and services but lousy management and morale
At KONE you can work in service, installation, sales or various degrees of supervisor. If you like to be a bit technical and enjoy dealing with customers, then elevators might be the place for you. Unless you are really lucky, you will not get a great deal of technical training and will need to learn most of it through reading equipment documentation on site or asking your co-workers. Management steer training to less interesting things like how workers can make management reporting easier, reducing downtime and the usual obligatory WH&S talks. Every department in this organisation remains in its own silo with a self-interested manager in charge, there is no such thing as the entire organisation working together. An ingrained culture or "that's not our problem" or "if they get the work, then that's less money for me and my area will look bad" thrives, so employees get punished if they choose to help a fellow employee from another area. The actual workers are a pretty decent bunch of guys, although most of them are sick of complaining about the way the company has evolved and have pretty much given up, they just come to work to get paid and don't care if everything falls apart because at some point "they told you this was going to happen".
ProsDecent pay and benefits.
ConsNot much room for career progression and next to no recognition when work is done well, they like to focus on negative events.

Assistant Bookkeeper | Nicosia | 30 Jan 2013
Productive and fun workplace
To begin with i would like to mention that i was working on a part-time basis (3 days, approximately 20-25 hours per week), this gave me the flexibility to manage my studies. The accounts department was of a medium size enabling me to adjust quickly. Due to the fact that the office was open plan, no one was behind closed doors this helped in communication with other staff members, making people more approachable when needing assistance. Management was flexible, helpful and willing to listen if needed. At first the collection of over due accounts was priority with customer liaising and communication either verbally or written, this gave me an insight into peoples thinking and how to always be polite but firm. Posting invoices on the system and the reconciliation of vendor accounts was important, enabling me to understand the necessity of time management in an accounts office. Analyzing financial data and making conclusions, interacting with my co workers and learning from their experience, taking advice and putting my opinion forward too. With the collection of overdue accounts, the necessity to always stay calm and in control was important, some times frustrating when customers ignore your communication. On the other hand the successful collection of accounts was always rewarding.

Service Administrator | Ontario | 9 Oct 2012
Different type of work
My day would consist of opening work orders, processing expense reports to be approved by Branch Manager. Daily entry of technician hours, ensuring all purchase orders, hours, expenses related to a job have been entered, thus allowing closure of job. Maintaining the "contract base" for Burlington; this consisted of entries of contracts for service to customer's crane equipment, loading contract into system. The "base" was balanced daily/weekly and total information was required prior to the last "month end day" to have budget numbers/amounts entered for final service numbers. It was interesting to see how cranes were produced/manufactured and learning about the various types of cranes, gantry's, jibs, etc. A typical day wasn't always typical...you wanted to be sure there was balance between service work but making sure the customer needs were handled, especially when entering of the contracts, getting the information to customer in a timely manner, along with the booklet for their files. I enjoy dealing with customers, whether it be by phone or in person, even though sometimes there were hiccups to deal with, truly enjoy that aspect of this particular job.

Je déconseille totalement
Très bonne entreprise niveau culture, vie d'entreprise, CE. C'est aussi une entreprise où tu apprends énormément et c'est gratifiant pour la suite de ta vie professionnelle. Mais par contre il faut tomber sur le bon manager, sinon c'est invivable. Personnellement mon manager n'était pas du tout organisé, me donnait des tâches à faire datant de deux mois mais finalement c était très urgent, pression psychologique et moral, il n'assumait jamais ses tords et c'était toujours moi qui soit disant faisait n'importe quoi, ou mal organisé, on te traite d'incompétent et tu ressors de cette entreprise marqué par cette mentalité, il y aussi le fait ne pas vouloir faire d'heures supplémentaires non payées qui est mal vu, toujours rejeter la faute sur les autres et passer pour le meilleur c'est quotidien chez KONE pour monter en grade. Donc en soit le système d'entreprise est bien mais après être entouré de personnes aimant te pousser à la dépression, une horreur ! C'est bien de construire une culture d'entreprise mais après il faudrait que les managers embauchés aillent dans ce sens!

Productive, Challenging and Friendly workplace.
-40 hour weeks, 6am-2pm. -To start off with a typical days work mainly involved heavy lifting and moving of old elevator parts and helping the lift technician with small jobs that would have been very time consuming and difficult if he had done them alone. After a few weeks, I was then given the responsibility of installing push buttons and position indicators on the outside of the elevator on every floor. -I learned quite a bit about basic electrical circuitry -Management was positive, giving me enough to time to get used to the job I was doing before giving me a tighter schedule to work with once I was I knew what I was doing. -My co-workers were great people to be around, between us we could a conversation for hours. As well as this, we worked very effectively together making the job a lot easier for all of us. -The hardest part of the job was the heavy lifting although, I thoroughly enjoyed it. -The most enjoyable part was learning more about basic electrical circuits and the installation. I also thoroughly enjoyed the environment in which we worked.

Good Company
The hours are long and there is almost no work life balance as it’s either working until late or starting very early in the morning. It can be very tiring and sometimes the targets can be hard to reach, for example the 85 percent productivity. I asked a manager for help and had to go back to them a few times before I got help for what I was asking and told a manager about a problem with the boxes getting stuck on the conveyor belt and they didn’t help and only helped when someone else went and told them, by which point it had gotten worse. The pay is only 9.70 an hour at the base rate which I feel could be more for what they expect of you, but you can get a bonus on top of that which makes it slightly better, however the bonus sheet you have to fill in to gain the bonus can be quite a pain to do as you have to fill it in anytime you stop work long for whatever reason. The job is an alright job If warehouse work is for you and you can keep up with their expectations. There was also, in my opinion, not enough training as I only had training for one week before I was left to do it on my own with no support, but the team leaders were helpful when I was on training.

Management issues
Multi cultural company yet in UAE 90% are Indians, and career growth are just for those people that talk more work less. The division of work they provide for the field Technicians are far unrealistic like working alone, managing customer meeting and complains, troubleshooting, servicing, repairs, reporting and documentations. Management cut the cost for the field Technicians to do work. Salary is fair enough yet i have seen companies that far more income and benifits and less work load. Every month there will be a Technicians goes for resignation due to the management issues and management has no regards whats happening for those who resigned. They even control the employees pulse survey by telling the Technicians what to write. I have no complains among the higher management but for those supervisors, engineers and managers only who are keeping silent for the issues that the field Technicians are complaining. If someone complains they will sure keep an eye on them and make reasons and excuses.
ProsAccommodation
ConsWork load for the field Technician, with 90 more or less units per technician
