    I have been working at Atlas Copco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good vacation policy starting at 14 days, name recognition on a resume

    Cons

    Below average salaries, vacation is discouraged, CYA is necessary, extremely pricey healthcare, no mobility between departments, managers at each others throats, LEAN style manufacturing with zero quality control on vendors so no parts are in or the parts you have are inferior in quality, nebulous job descriptions that include "do anything we say you have to", hourly workers regularly cheated on overtime, sales trumps all other departments

    Advice to Management

    None, SRCC and HPC facilities profit margin speaks loudly enough. Negative growth over three years, greater than 50% turnover, only recent grads coming in, low morale, and warranty costs in the millions. They're sleeping in the bed they've made.

    I have been working at Atlas Copco full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay, good vacation, no consequences from actions or lack thereof.

    Cons

    No consequences from actions. Truly unrealistic expectations from management. Not enough time to properly and fully complete tasks. A lot of direction with little explanation. A truly cynical culture that will bring the most optimistic people down. There is no "engineering" to be done on the shop floor, you chase parts in a chaotic, disorganized warehouse. Stay away unless you want to work in a "job shop" setting.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down and do it correctly instead of shooting from the hip and hoping you get it right. Quit worrying about making things "look good" for management tours and maybe try to work on truly honing in processes to make the numbers speak for themselves.

    I have been working at Atlas Copco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The best thing about Atlas was above average compensation, and the benefits were great. I believe the benefits were better than the compensation.

    Cons

    The business tends to lay off every four or five years. Most of the lay off is from production, not the office jobs. I we laid off twice from 2008-2013, up and down business market.

    Advice to Management

    Be up front with production

    I have been working at Atlas Copco as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are hard-working and intelligent. The work is interesting and the company works hard to take care of the employees.

    Cons

    I have not yet experienced any cons in working for Atlas Copco. Even though Atlas Copco is a global company, they allow local management enough leeway to manage their people with care and respect.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing well with interactions with employees and the end customer will continue to be well taken care of.
