    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

    Most employees have been employed there 15 plus years; average benefits; friendly atmosphere; some management do have open door policy.

    Sometimes, management does not pass down job relevant information; opportunity for growth and advancement is slim to none; can be cliquey and it is VERY apparent there are favored personnel; off site HR/Benefits administration, which can be difficult or frustrating when assistance is needed.
