    I have been working at Sandvik full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are many opportunities for professional development and training, the company values innovation and sustainability. Work/life balance is highly respected.

    Cons

    For many, bonus opportunity is based more on financial results than personal achievement, which can be demotivating.

    Pros

    The work life balance is well above average. Sandvik is a great place to learn about manufacturing. They value their employees and promote from within.

    Cons

    The office politics can be annoying. They are somewhat rigid in their structure. The salary was less than expected. They follow the mother plant's guidelines with little question.

    Pros

    Company offers a great 401K, one of the best in the country. Good compensation and benefits 100% tuition reimbursement. Excellent work/life balance.

    Cons

    Small company. No where to go in the short term. However, there is room if you want to move to other sister companies or to the headquarters in Europe.

    Cons

    Sandvik has underperformed the last 6 years comparing to peers Unclear Headquarter communication and corporate vision in Sandvik Rock Technology division Lack of sales and customer focus. This is company that looks itself, customer is not the main focus....high bureaucracy in doing businesses. Mediocre Human Resources staff in Latam. This is probably the worst division I have seen.
