    Pros

    You get a lot of responsibilities.

    Cons

    It is difficult to move up the ladder (no support from HR and very little from management), so you need to do everything yourself. Salary wise, it is not the best employer. You should not work for Atlas Copco if salary is important to you. Also, almost everyone gets paid the same, irrespective of the hours/work you put in (typical Scandinavian company)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become better people managers and set the example yourselves. Atlas Copco still breathes the culture of a very masculine, rational, (sometimes macho), engineering firm.
