    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 Management

    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 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 Management

    Be up front with production


  3. Good place to get experience designing.

    Pros

    The people are hard-working and intelligent. The work is interesting and the company works hard to take care of the employees.

    Cons

    I have not yet experienced any cons in working for Atlas Copco. Even though Atlas Copco is a global company, they allow local management enough leeway to manage their people with care and respect.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing well with interactions with employees and the end customer will continue to be well taken care of.
