    Pros

    This company is very good for people who come from school.
    Young starters who live at home with parents to collect some money to start own life .
    You can learn a lot and after some years, you are ready for next challenge.
    Do the same job for more than 5 year will stop further improvements.
    Company is based on friends politics.

    Cons

    People with high level university degree get all focuss on the spot and don't need expierience for management function.
    People with lower degree will get no fucuss on the spot, need to work hard and don't get possitive feedback on the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    High level jobs for high level people is one thing ?
    What about the others ?, management need to think how those people can have normal life in normal actual conditions with increasing costs and not higher salary, no company car and no cell phone like the high level people have ?

    I have been working at Atlas Copco full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, good vacation, no consequences from actions or lack thereof.

    Cons

    No consequences from actions. Truly unrealistic expectations from management. Not enough time to properly and fully complete tasks. A lot of direction with little explanation. A truly cynical culture that will bring the most optimistic people down. There is no "engineering" to be done on the shop floor, you chase parts in a chaotic, disorganized warehouse. Stay away unless you want to work in a "job shop" setting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Slow down and do it correctly instead of shooting from the hip and hoping you get it right. Quit worrying about making things "look good" for management tours and maybe try to work on truly honing in processes to make the numbers speak for themselves.

    Pros

    The company offers great medical, retirement, and vacation benefits. The job is not hard to do and it's pretty easy to learn the process. Some of the managers are great people and understand and care for you.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between the managers and employees. Sometimes work can get a bit boring depending on the position you have.

    I have been working at Atlas Copco full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The best thing about Atlas was above average compensation, and the benefits were great. I believe the benefits were better than the compensation.

    Cons

    The business tends to lay off every four or five years. Most of the lay off is from production, not the office jobs. I we laid off twice from 2008-2013, up and down business market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be up front with production

    I have been working at Atlas Copco part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Core values and culture, one of the world's most sustainable and ethical companies.
    Responsibility from day 1.
    Fair pay for fair work

    Cons

    A very large and complicated organizational structure making decisions slow and change difficult.
    The turn over of personnel is low (which is good) however implicates this limited possibility for promotions etc. Horizontal reallocation more common.
