I worked at Atlas Copco full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good benefits, good pay, good group of coworkers, corporate layoff included severance package (they made getting laid off as soft as it could be), a lot of hands on experience is available

Cons

Stale atmosphere with little to no team building beyond work tasks, safety is sometimes a concern due to the nature of the work, you will have to wear many hats to get the job done

    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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    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
