    Pros

    Good focus on accountability and responsibility. Good product with high technology a leader in the industry. Great brand name but this is changing soon.

    Cons

    Resistant to change, sales systems could use an upgrade. System is fine for long time employees but less so for new comers.

    Pros

    Pro's depend on the division/organization you work for. There are none to highlight for my area.

    Cons

    Lack of communication, lack of transparency, lack of support, very little training offered, will fire employees to appease mgmt, quick turnover

    Advice to Management

    Not all who manage, can lead well. Provide training and assistance to employees instead of being so quick to fire. Be more transparent and conscious of value added communication that is lacking.

    "Great...until management change"

    I worked at Atlas Copco full-time

    Pros

    I loved my job for over three years. The training was superb and I loved interacting with the customers. The manager I had for most of my time there was outstanding.

    Cons

    A change in management brought me a manager with little management experience and a "bully" mentality. Not good.

    Advice to Management

    I loved my job. My customers loved me and I got along well with my co-workers. Please do more due diligence on who you promote to lead others. Otherwise, you may continue to lose top-notch talent.

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

    Pros

    Everyone in other departments when out of their way to help me and to share their knowledge with me, help me do things even if it wasn't anything to with their department.

    Cons

    We all (5 of us in a row) sat very close to each other, which you would think would make communication very easy. Wrong. The only communication with each other was through Jabber (like a message app) or through email. If you were stuck, confused or having a trouble with something you had to, almost every time, wait for a response to an email. Even though they could just turn around to help you. They wanted a visual of what you were asking like they needed proof that you were the one who was doing it wrong, to keep themselves out of trouble. That it was YOUR fault not theirs. Worst of all they would get mad if you were shown something wrong. They would wait till it became a larger problem, then they would send you a nasty email telling you messed up and screwed up a process. And in turn causing problems with other peoples jobs. So instead of explaining what you did wrong and helping you fix your mistake, so you could learn for them. They would just fix it for you and make you feel bad for doing something wrong or not understanding it in the first place.

    Advice to Management

    When someone isn't doing well, don't make threats and then continues to not train them. The boss should be the one letting you go, not a supervisor. Not only a HR and your Supervisor. If you tell someone that they need to improve you should actually help them achieve that, not just send them an email that your going to train on a certain day and then just not.

    To be told "we have to let you go, you have shown little to no improvement. Do you have any questions for me?" and then have HR tell you "to leave IMEADIALY and DO NOT come back to the building." is so incredibly hurtful I can't even begging to tell you. they didn't even want to give me time go gather my personal belongings. made me feel like a criminal.

    I have been working at Atlas Copco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Excellent product. Market leader with customers. Customers know our product and are familiar with Atlas Copco in general. Good management structure with excellent sales process in place.

    Cons

    Atlas Copco is a very large company and therefore takes a LONG time to make decisions that seem critical at times.

    Service dept is a FOR-PROFIT organization which makes life as a customer difficult and painful. I understand making a profit (we ARE in business for a reason), but stepping back and looking at the big picture with a customer is needed most times.

    Pros

    Benefits and Salary and free coffee and crushed ice

    Not enough training and training was inconsistent was told after a month and a half to improve or else didnt even get a 90 day probation period. I thought this was Accounts Payable NOT Rocket Science but it sure is there. RUN!!!

    Managers need to get more training themselves and stay consistant!
