    Pros

    Meeting new people and learning about different parts

    Cons

    Too much favoritism and not fair straight across the board. The upper management looks down on the employees as if they're beneath them. Not all of them sum of them.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your people with respect and stop all the favoritism and be completely honest with your employees.

    Pros

    Good vacation policy starting at 14 days, name recognition on a resume

    Cons

    Below average salaries, vacation is discouraged, CYA is necessary, extremely pricey healthcare, no mobility between departments, managers at each others throats, LEAN style manufacturing with zero quality control on vendors so no parts are in or the parts you have are inferior in quality, nebulous job descriptions that include "do anything we say you have to", hourly workers regularly cheated on overtime, sales trumps all other departments

    Advice to Management

    None, SRCC and HPC facilities profit margin speaks loudly enough. Negative growth over three years, greater than 50% turnover, only recent grads coming in, low morale, and warranty costs in the millions. They're sleeping in the bed they've made.

    Pros

    Diverse company with a lot of global opportunities. Good work life balance. Great coworkers.

    Cons

    Large organization. Some politics. Best people aren't always in leadership/managing roles. It can be difficult to get things done due to large and always changing organization.

    Pros

    Good place to work, great benefits, good salary. As long as you respond and take care of customers, management stays off your back

    Cons

    Lack of communication in some areas, but for the most part it is minimal and related to internal emails.

    Pros

    Atlas Copco makes a outstanding product. The ability to look up on their Computer System passed product was the best I've ever used.

    Cons

    Atlas Copco has a very poor training program with little interest in seeing their employees succeed. I work for five different companies this is the worst company I have ever worked for.

    Advice to Management

    Life is too short to work for company that is managed in their current system. Expect in your employees to work 12 to 14 hours a day 6 to 7 days a week is an incomprehensible.

    Great pay and benefits. Gained lots of experience and knowledge.

    Many inefficiencies. Poor management. Lack of stable supervisors. Upper management is unprofessional.

    Upper management needs to learn professionalism. Make sure the people you hire and put in positions are the correct people. Eliminate the unprofessional and inappropriate relationships starting with upper level management.

    Pros

    Great benefits and decent pay. Very good opportunities and global security. I also have an excellent boss.

    Cons

    Major communication issues between the different levels of the totem pole.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what would give better results as to the quality and flow of the job rather than focusing on streamlining everything for efficiency.
