    Pros

    People are friendly.
    Close and open working environment.
    As an intern, I was allowed to work with and learn from the controller and other management.

    Cons

    There is gossip about promotions.
    There are not many downsides, as I was only an intern. Perhaps the location of the Garland branch.

    Advice to Management

    I think it is important to always maintain strong relationships with employees. I think the management are doing a fine job.

  6. A global company with room for advancement if you desire it.

    Pros

    Best reasons to work at Atlas Copco: Global company with room for professional growth, excellent 401K program, good benefits, company will request employee feedback,

    Cons

    Being a large company with several locations throughout the world, senior management made a decision after acquiring Dynapac to shut down the assembly plant, therefore resulting in several people losing their jobs. Salary paid was also on the low side of the scale in comparison to other manufacturing companies in the same area.

    Pros

    I started off as a graduate and after only three years in Sweden I was transferred to another country. Great way to grow as a professional and a person and experience different corporate cultures

    Cons

    It is a large, stiff organization and sometimes ideas to implementation takes way too long. The HR departments are not the best and improvement in this field could benefit the company greatly

    Advice to Management

    Re-assess the HR policies and continue fostering young people
