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.
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.
• Responsible in troubleshooting and analyzing of minor and major problems of elevators and escalator with or without drawing and do repair or parts replacement whenever necessary.
• Preparing reports from evaluation and status of every units in sites.
• As routinely visual checkups of every units and other corresponding components for any abnormal operation and condition.

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
ProsMet several new friends when surveying jobs and visiting contractors, Pay and benefits, Offering a perspective as an installer to bridge the gap among staff in the planning phases, Fostering positive relationships with direct reports, Opportunities to guide and teach contractors on their first building with an elevator.
Cons"Bait and switch" style job posting, Zero support, office cliques, Workload ensures no family life, Stress level is more dangerous than working on elevators and escalators in any capacity!
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
ProsTraining, High Standard of work, Friendly, Caring, Salary, Bonus, Car, Phone
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.
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.
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.

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!
ConsMauvais managers, aucuns liens entre les collaborateurs
-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.
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.
ConsWork load for the field Technician, with 90 more or less units per technician
C'est une bonne entreprise pour commencer et apprendre le métier dans le domaine, et acquérir de l'expérience sur le terrain car il y en as du travail.
Mais pas une bonne entreprise sur le long terme, On vous promet mont et merveille mais le méprit du personnelle de bureau est une culture de la société (surtout par e-mail)... en plus d'avoir un salaire au plus bas par rapport au marché.
Vous devez vivre pour l'entreprise si vous voulez évoluer...
ProsBonne entrée dans le métier (ascenseur, porte, escalator), bonne expérience technique acquise avec les mois sur le terrain, bonne organisation (via application téléphonique), pas de mouchard ( on vous fait confiance), a cheval sur la sécurité.
ConsSalaire minable ( difficile de dépasser les 2000€ brut, même avec de l'expérience), relationnelle inexistant/mauvais entre le personnelle bureau/terrain, hiérarchie insultante et harcelante, syndicats inexistants, peu d’opportunité pour évoluer (sauf si fayot vous êtes), difficile d'obtenir de l’outillage neuf (pour remplacer celui HS), politique de l'entreprise de plus en plus radin avec les années.
Fired all admin staff in a day and bring in temps. We had to sign to get a payout said we couldn't sue. No diversity in upper mgmt. I'll never go back
Work-life balance at KONE is ok traditional 8 to 5 Monday through Friday
Pay & benefits
My pay and benefits at KONE are pay was low benefits ok
Job security and advancement
In terms of job security at KONE, I think none. There's no diversity in upper management above first tier local managers. They don't have room for advancement for women your admin and that's it. When we heard rumors weeks prior, the branch manager held a meeting stating there's nothing to worry about.Three weeks later thry fired admins all in the same day and brought in temps to save money. There's no job security here!
In general, managers at KONE my direct manager wasn't good. He eventually got fired.
Collaboration with my colleagues at KONE is good. My fellow counterparts were great to work with.
My experience working at KONE we were treated like a number. Everyone in management and above were out for themselves.
