    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"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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.

    Pros

    Interessante projecten: er is nog werkelijk onderzoeksbudget, verbeteringsprojecten ipv de zoveelste kostreductie. Wereldwijde afzetmarkt van de producten, dus er is wel degelijk een impact. Veel specialisten aan boord, dus veel expertise om projecten op hoog niveau te voeren: software-ontwikkelingen, (stromings) mechanica, produtie tools.

    Cons

    Goede startlonen, maar na 4 jaar komt er niets meer bij. Enkel nog de wettelijke index. Veel beloftes, maar niemand komt na de eerste 4 jaar nog vooruit qua loon. Amper firmawagens, en een oninteressante regeling. Bedrijf is bijna onberijkbaar tenzij je met de fiets kan komen. Slechte IT tools.

    Pros

    I was able to work with great people, generally good products, with a strong company focus on growth and sustainability.

    Cons

    It is not always easy to progress within the company. The salary is not overly competative in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Speak to employees more, let them know what they are working towards.
