    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.

    Loyalty to employees is only skin deep. Don't bother sacrificing yourself for Sandvik, they WILL NOT return the favor.

    I worked at Sandvik Coromant US full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, benefits and perks (company car, cell phone, etc)

    Cons

    Very poor culture. Complete lack of professionalism combined with "high school-esque" drama and behind the back talk. Individuals will not hesitate to step on your back to climb their way to the top or throw you under the bus if they feel it is advantageous to their pocketbook or career path goals. You can not trust anyone or expect any conversation to be held in confidence. Perception drives opinions of individuals and their work, not merit or actual interaction or experience with people or their abilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house. There are too many legacy issues in decision making roles. This company is run on how well you can kiss up and make people like you. It has nothing to do with actual merit, ability or job performance. Typically the worse you are at your job, or at least being good at making it look like you're actually doing your job, the faster you rise.
