I worked at Atlas Copco full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

good products, good marketing, good sales tools

Cons

Injected management with European transplants, have lost recognizing all the great people who have built their position in the US. Moving up has become very political and not performance based. Lost their way in the US.

Advice to Management

Lose the Euro mentality and the micro-management of top performers. Focus on building a cohesive team and not just on the bottom line.

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

    Pros

    Wonderful working environment, it's a European company so you have different nationalities within. wonderful holiday package allowing the almost the whole week of christmas off, up until new years.

    Cons

    No training provided.. It's really a go for what you know with the help of older employees. Pay is horrible compared to market in Houston.

    Advice to Management

    Have HR do a better check on background before hiring.. Education verification isn't a hard task to do, transcripts(official) should be enough.
