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

    Pros

    Great benefits. Decent pay. Most of the people there are great to work with but the very few ruin it for the rest.

    Cons

    Chaos. Pure and simple. Inventory is out of control, no strictly followed or developed business processes, project meeting are tailored to be a venue for throwing one another under the bus and an to come up with a story for justifying skewed and behind schedule timelines presented to upper management, everyone is in constant fire fighting mode, management doesn't know how to work together - each department is at each other's throat, some managers are major micro managers where as others are totally hands off... Simply there is no direction, no vision. It is understood that in order to make money product must go out the door. But doing the same incorrect, non-value added routine day in and day out is good for no one.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together. There is a great wealth of talent and available to you to make the business successful if you would just take the time to do things correctly rather than pushing a myriad of sub-par products out the door. Atlas Copco has a strong name and history but doing what you are doing is nothing but tarnishing a good name.
