Great Benefits, wonderful concern about employees
Sr. Engineering Program Manager (Former Employee), Houston, TexasMay 12, 2015
Pros: wonderful benefits
Cons: strict dresscode
Old world European company. Difficult time embracing change, working hard to embrace technology.

It is hard in a manufacturing environment when the factory shuts down two months a year. They struggle to meet the customer demands in today's competitive world. All it was a challenging company to work for. However, the products were world class.

They will work you into your GRAVE......Literally!
Engineering (Former Employee), Auburn Hills, MIMarch 13, 2015
Pros: good benefit / 401k package
Cons: too many to list
Atlas Copco has great benefits and you will require them as they work you 65-70hrs per week, 6-7 days a week. They will tell you it's just until they get caught up, or until things smooth out....but they never get caught up and things never smooth out. Every meeting has UN-obtainable goals provided by a management team that DOES NOT want to change their processes. A typical day at work starts at 6-7am putting out fires to get a job out the door that is already late from the day the order was taken. After 5pm time is spent completing daily tasks that should of been done while you were taking care of emergencies all day long. Around 7-8pm you go home, do some MORE work there, and then turn around and come back again. Most Sundays are spent working from home. Forget your family, your friends, the gym, or ANY outside activities you may of had. Vacations are paid for by coming back to work that NO ONE did while you were out - imagine the hours you put in that week! Some people have heart attacks, have siblings die, have major surgeries, and are ALL expected to return to work in record time and NOT put the company in harms way. It's all about ATLAS!!! They have no heart, just a dollar sign and you are just a number....a cog on a wheel. So, if you like working towards that hole in the ground in the cemetery - this is the perfect place for you!

Everyone was very difficult to work with
Shipping planner (Former Employee), Voorheesville, NYNovember 4, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: poor management
A day at Atlas was not easy. I worked 14 our days and still had work to bring home. There is no work / home life balance. The money was great, but I feel that the company had no moral compass. During my tenure there both of my parents had died 6 months apart and when I took my vacation to deal with my mom's estate and funeral it was not looked upon favorably. I was pulled aside by management in a private setting with no human resources associate and was told I took too much time off.

Would be a great place to work if not for the year of harassment I endured.
Service Technician Apprentice (Former Employee), Brighton ColoradoSeptember 17, 2014
Management did nothing when I complained my tools and equipment were being destroyed, improper documents were left at my work station and on my tool box, and my supervisor refused to train me. Very hostile work environment.

Mechanic/ Technician (Former Employee), San AntonioAugust 7, 2014
Pros: pay/benefits
Cons: upper management non existant
Good pay and benefits. Management was across the country and didn't pay us much attention or gave us much support...until they showed up and closed our location. Thanks.

The only other thing I could say was their supply system was not efficient. Always waiting for parts and sometimes not getting the right stuff.

Atlas Copco does have well designed equipment and I would recommend their stuff.
