    I worked at Atlas Copco full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    good products, good marketing, good sales tools

    Cons

    Injected management with European transplants, have lost recognizing all the great people who have built their position in the US. Moving up has become very political and not performance based. Lost their way in the US.

    Advice to Management

    Lose the Euro mentality and the micro-management of top performers. Focus on building a cohesive team and not just on the bottom line.

    I worked at Atlas Copco full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful working environment, it's a European company so you have different nationalities within. wonderful holiday package allowing the almost the whole week of christmas off, up until new years.

    Cons

    No training provided.. It's really a go for what you know with the help of older employees. Pay is horrible compared to market in Houston.

    Advice to Management

    Have HR do a better check on background before hiring.. Education verification isn't a hard task to do, transcripts(official) should be enough.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    It was a nice place to work as far as beneifits and my fellow slaves were Ok to work with.

    Cons

    Upper management in the home office needs to take a closer look at the supervisors and office managers that put in charge in these remote offices. Alot of favortism is played by the office manager in Reading. Lies to cover her butt. Will not take respsonsibility to address a situation that is happening in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be fair and open minded when there is an issue. Especially when a salesman lies about you and does not do his job and admits that he will make your life hell. Even customers complained about this salesman and I was told to "fix it". When an employee comes to you with proof and issues, do not dismiss the employee who is trying to communicate with you. After 12 years of employment with Atlas Copco, I was thrown out because the Reading office manager did not like me being honest about the salesman and his games. She knew it, but since she is personal friends with him I got canned, And upper management in Rock Hill would not listen or talk to me.
