    Pros

    The pay for engineers is really satisfying for graduates. Nice atmosphere in a relaxing environment. Extra benefits are provided like pension plan and discounts at several stores and clubs. Good career opportunities.

    Cons

    Because the big organization structure, sometimes it's hard to get things done. Sometimes the work can be repetitive and less interesting or satisfying.

    I worked at Atlas Copco full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great medical benefits, no where else compares. They have employee and family events that other companies don't spend the money on any more.

    They are trying to move to a "customer focused" organization.

    Lots of training opportunities available and employees are required to complete 40 hrs every year.

    Cons

    Compensation is lower than other places. There is a lot of talk about the ability to move within the company, however there are few opportunities and very few chances are given to move around unless a "newly created" position becomes available.

    Morale is very low resulting in a high turn over rate.

    Processes are extremely manually and they don't seem to want to change them. There isn't a formal change review process or a standard place to really see all of the processes you need to follow. Something can be mentioned in passing by management and that puts the change in place. Whenever a new person comes on board and questions why the manual effort is there, they are immediately black balled. I have heard it more than once "Why does everyone want to come in an change our processes?" The answer is that there is a better way to do things, however, unless you are one of the chosen few your opinion doesn't count.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Actually make changes. Stop saying we are going to change to make things better. Actually do something. Use your new people as a sounding board to make the changes and listen to them. Stop relying on people who have been around for 10 years to make your changes.

    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 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
