    I have been working at Atlas Copco part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Core values and culture, one of the world's most sustainable and ethical companies.
    Responsibility from day 1.
    Fair pay for fair work

    Cons

    A very large and complicated organizational structure making decisions slow and change difficult.
    The turn over of personnel is low (which is good) however implicates this limited possibility for promotions etc. Horizontal reallocation more common.

    Pros

    Sustainable with the potential to survive through tough times.

    Rigid in its processes which leaves "creative thinking" only to those that have been given that responsibility in their Job Description.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure work experience is taken into account more so that qualification.

    I worked at Atlas Copco

    Pros

    The company culture is friendly, open, responsible, high-achieving yet fun. People are helpful and team oriented, which leads to a pleasant work environment and high performance. Also, the company works well with corporate responsibility, and there are great career opportunities. Changing position, business area, country etc is encouraged

    Cons

    The wage is mediocre, and at some points the big organization can get a bit bureaucratic and slow. Offices seldom situated down town

    I have been working at Atlas Copco as a contractor (less than an year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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