    I have been working at Sandvik Coromant US full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Close to home and nice new office building

    Cons

    All management is foreign and under-qualified. Human Resources is not trained or familiar with US culture or US business protocol. As a result , the current restructuring is being poorly executed and all the good employees are leaving the company. Unfortunately, your future career opportunities will depend on your age and ethnicity .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One of Sandvik Coromants' values is "Fair Play". Human Resources needs to understand that what is considered fair play is different depending on what country you are in and HR needs to respect US values, be more open minded and also learn US work culture so you can stop insulting the US staff.

    I worked at Sandvik Coromant US full-time

    Pros

    -Strong Sandvik Group brand and corporate umbrella
    -Growth potential within Sandvik Group

    Cons

    -Coromant Michigan in particular is chock full of "lifers", many of whom are stuck in reliving former glory days at Valenite.
    -Pontiac office is not welcoming to newcomers
    -Pontiac office will always play second fiddle to NJ facility.
    -Tremendous level of politics between NJ and MI offices, which means the employees are the ones used as the game pieces.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realign yourself with the true Sandvik core values. What Coromant produces is not that unique to the marketplace, so don't become too confident/complacent. Closing the Pontiac office is a step in the right direction - esp if several of the "leaders" are cut loose.

    Local managment is lacking in any type of team apporach.

    I worked at Sandvik Coromant US full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    People are always open to your questions. Everybody works with their doors open. Anytime you have a question you can approach even the President at anytime.

    Cons

    You have to create your own plan of work and set goals for yourselves (of course by discussing it with your manager). So if you are person who needs to be told what to do this won't be a comfortable place for you.
