I worked at Atlas Copco full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Good benefits, good pay, good group of coworkers, corporate layoff included severance package (they made getting laid off as soft as it could be), a lot of hands on experience is available

Cons

Stale atmosphere with little to no team building beyond work tasks, safety is sometimes a concern due to the nature of the work, you will have to wear many hats to get the job done

    I have been working at Atlas Copco full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company offers great medical, retirement, and vacation benefits. The job is not hard to do and it's pretty easy to learn the process. Some of the managers are great people and understand and care for you.

    Cons

    Lack of communication between the managers and employees. Sometimes work can get a bit boring depending on the position you have.

    I worked at Atlas Copco full-time for more than a 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.
