    Pros

    Great pay and benefits; excellent 401k match; paid week off after Christmas with out having to use personal paid time off

    Cons

    Management style from the 1970's - employees seen as property - response to problems is "work more and longer hours" - ethical concerns, they report false information to upper management. The expectation is that departments work against each other. Absolute chaos. Inventory accuracy 60% at best, no work instructions, no training department, inaccurate bills of materials, will not address the issues, then want to know why products don't ship on time. Do not believe in process improvement, only "blame and shame".

    Advice to Management

    Resign. Let somebody else try to fix this dumpster fire.

    I have been working at Atlas Copco full-time

    Pros

    Work with some good people who have become good friends. Company offers great benefits & pay.

    Cons

    Good friends don't necessarily make "good workers". It's hard to find employees at Atlas who know that work is not a 4 letter word, so the work load is carried by a few while many collect the pay & credit for it. The only place I have ever worked that has more management positions than hourly employees. Our location has 7 salary management people and 4 hrly. As the saying goes, to many chiefs and not enough indians. All management shows up if & when they feel like, play games, chat up a storm, then out to lunch, expense it & never return for the day. Big discrimination difference for pay rate from females to male.

    And finally the company is so big with so many applications and softwares that even the people in charge of them can't keep track or provide direction on how to use them.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of excess of overpaid worthless management positions and hire 1-2 qualified individuals with the degree and experience needed. Stop hiring your buddy BillyBob - champ at the weekend beer pong game who needs to get himself a job, starting $100,000 annually. Until this happens the downturn will continue.

    Pros

    Good benefits good expense account

    Cons

    To quote a post from Linkedin- You should hire people to tell you what to do ,not hire people so you can tell them what to do ! Your voice is not heard , the Copco world is driven and controlled via Belgium. The USA is a square peg and Copco is damned and determined to make it fit the Belgium round hole. A lot of their customers hate Atlas Copco due to arrogent people they have to deal with. Fed up with delayed parts delivery and delayed service. Theres a new player in town making Atlas Copco parts now. I'm sure this will rattle some cages and get some changes made really quick.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up- Time to perform and earn your keep.
