Poorly managed aggressive environment.
Project Engineer (Current Employee) –  Rock Hill, SCJune 6, 2019
They are never ready for any of the new hires. They have no computers set up when they arrive, no permanent work spaces, and the typical first assignment is to "help" build proto units which ended up being trying to stay out of senior staffs way as they couldn't be bothered to get them involved. In the defense of the staff, they were under a lot of pressure from management to get things done yesterday and seemed very stressed.

They do not introduce company resources and software to employees in a reasonable time nor give comprehensive training. So you are left constantly asking coworkers how to use the company specific software like BCPS, an oracle based program. They advertise being ISO 9001 certified, which they are, however 9 out of 10 employees didn't know this when asked, let alone know where the database was. Once finally directed to it, it is clear that it isn't being maintained or taken seriously, thus there are no resources to familiarize yourself with company policies. But that doesn't matter because, and I quote at least 3 other senior staff, "It doesn't matter what the policy is, we never follow it anyway." (Not a joke.)

It will be very difficult to join this company if you come from an organized business or non-hostile work environment. There are almost daily meetings (with the conference room doors open) where leadership gets short tempered with staff. It is awkward and uncomfortable. The work that has been released is very clearly not reviewed and blindly approved by leadership. The BOMs are riddled with errors, product structure is half missing, drawings
  more... are incomplete, and the designs are not validated or verified. You will be stuck cleaning up someone else's mess and pressured into half assing it to "stay on schedule".

Parts don't come in to print or on time. There seems to be little disciplinary action for the suppliers as few if any parts are rejected. The suppliers appear to know this and take advantage of it, thus you are left to clean up another mess.

Everyone is stressed out and many new and senior staff are actively looking for other employment opportunities. The culture here is very aggressive.

Pros
Flexible work hours.
Cons
Overly aggressive unapproachable leadership, ISO 9001 certified but not compliant, over stressed atmosphere.

interesting place
Instrumentation Technician (Former Employee) –  San Diego, CAApril 22, 2019
Working for Atlas is pretty interesting. it is fully dependent on the price of oil so once the price of oil goes way down, so does your job. Layoff waves are frequent and job security is not very high

Former Salesperson
Sales Engineer (Former Employee) –  North Liberty, IAApril 16, 2019
There was a severe lack of training and management in general was very poor with no vision for the future. They really just wanted you to work your tail off and throe mud on the wall to see if any of it would stick. Marketing materials were lack luster as well. This company is very old school. There were no modern reporting tools. Did everything on a spreadsheet or wrote it down by hand a "call sheet".

They made a lot of promises upfront that they never intended to keep as I found out.
Pros
There were not any
Cons

Lack of career path & managers who point fingers
Manager (Current Employee) –  Auburn Hills, MIMarch 28, 2019
Great benefits and perks, everything sounds good. Well articulated managers who are excellent at pointing fingers and not leading their employees. Really unfortunate and embarrassing given a company this size. BLM's need to be more responsible for the growth of their employees and have accountability in leading them.

Good company culture, hard to advance
Project Engineer (Current Employee) –  Santa Maria, CAFebruary 25, 2019
Most of my time is spent in front of the computer or in meetings. The work is challenging but the company does what they can to give you the needed tools. Nothing happens fast in the company because of its size. I've found it's hard to get promoted but they still take good care of their employees and prioritize ethically .

Stressful job
Collation Operator (Former Employee) –  New Hudson, MIFebruary 19, 2019
It was mandatory 6 days a week; 48 hours weekly. They did not care about employees, only production. Was let go due to being admitted into the hospital and missed too many days. Again no care for employees. Only had one day off a week. Management lack communication skills. Company seemed sexist and racist. There were hardly women working here and all blacks were on 2nd or 3rd shift.

Unorganized Chaos
Employee (Current Employee) –  New Hudson, MIFebruary 12, 2019
Working for this company is tough. They treat everyone like a number, they dont care about their employees, they're constantly looking for more ways to squeeze production for more product. The supervisors and process engineers have no idea what they're doing. The quality department is a mess. The office people upstairs have a different set of rules than the floor and a relaxed work environment.
This company bites off more than they can chew on a regular basis and only the production staff have to deal with those consequences. Raises are terrible, and bonus aren't based on how well you do, but checklist items the corporation has that have to be met by this location AND other INTERNATIONAL sister companies.
Honestly, this company would work people until they keel over and die, then move on.
Terrible management. Terrible communication. Terrible place to work.

Proposal Manager (Former Employee) –  Auburn Hills, MIJanuary 25, 2019
likes to promote young people to management. Older people are not as likely to be promoted. Management likes to beat down the people that do a good job and work hard.

Machine Production and forging operator (Former Employee) –  South Lyon, MIJanuary 4, 2019
We would work on three different machines that were processing rivets that we would have to run a checker on all bins produced to make sure there was no defects. From measuring sizes all the way down to looking through microscopes.

Regional Sales Manager - Motor Vehicle Industry (Former Employee) –  Auburn Hills, MIDecember 11, 2018
Fast paced industry that doesn't value employee personal lives. Aggressive sales goals on top of required training make it more difficult for remote employees to manage customers and attend training classes at corporate offices.
Pros
generous expense report policy
Cons
work life balance, remote training resouces
