    I have been working at Atlas Copco full-time

    Pros

    Decent base pay for the area, people are nice

    Cons

    Management is bloated. The place is run like an engineering firm from the 50s with an obsession with hours and clocking in/out. Company is very slow to change and management don't like to listen to employees. Annual pay rises are dreadful.

    Advice to Management

    Give some trust to your employees. Let them work flexibly. Allow managers to actually manage their teams on a small scale and stop trying to manage everything by policy.

    I have been working at Atlas Copco full-time

    Pros

    Highly recognised organisation with excellent resources available. Heavily investing corporation which invests in its employees and subsidiary groups focused on creating and improving profitability. Strict on reporting and processes but there are methods and meanings to those needs.

    Cons

    Management structure requires review. Too many stages to obtain approval for certain tasks that can be handled by lower tier managers who have the knowledge and experience. Certain times it can be said to many hands on the steering wheel breaking control of communication, processes and teams.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your departmental managers, provide more necessary training to capable managers and members. Those managers creating resistance and difficulty need to be reviewed as their are individuals who can push the organisation to rocket further. Inspire your people more, give more hope and ambition.

    I have been working at Atlas Copco full-time

    Pros

    Part of a much larger organisation so plenty of opportunities to experience different business functional areas. Business improvements still to be made so chances to make a difference.

    Cons

    Not the most dynamic company, but that suits the market they operate in, so much needed operational changes happen by evolution not revolution.

    Advice to Management

    Embrace the opportunity to change and harness the energy and enthusiasm of those seeking it. Be confident in the market and plan for the mid to long term rather than the short.

    I have been working at Atlas Copco

    Pros

    None, yet to see anything that treats all employees equally across the entire organisation. Company is rife with bullying and harassment that is not taken to task.

    Cons

    Double standards by HR and General Management. Do as we say not as we do approach. Internal recruitment process goes against advertised internal processes and procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Time for a major change within some of your management functions!

    I have been working at Atlas Copco full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Atlas Copco are a world recognized corporate business that takes care and looks after all members in its group whether you work on a production line all the way up to senior management. They have very strong visions and implement procedures and targets to develop each phase to reach their required visions. They highly appreciate and greatly invest in R&D so there's always something new developing in the pipelines.

    Cons

    Some individuals lack vision yet it its potentially down to moral that needs boosting in various individuals. Some senior management lack drive and feel that old practices always work compared to new methods. This is only down to one small business sector i work in and cannot be viewed across the company as a whole. But i believe this is somewhere you see in all work places.

    Advice to Management

    Keep Pushing and driving the young to progress and succeed. Change the moral of workforce to be positive so they operate and function more healthier and actively. Keep promoting Atlas Copco - The Way we Work and its business code of ethics.
