A great place to work

Support Engineer (Current Employee)
Rock Hill, SC

I have been working at Atlas Copco as a contractor for less than a year

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

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
