    I worked at Atlas Copco Comptec full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good benefits, salary and work environment.

    Cons

    Some policies are antiquated (clocking in and out required for salaried employees, no work from home policy)

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

    Pros

    If something has to be listed, apparently the company wasn’t as always this poor in terms of atmosphere. (This must have been a long time ago)

    Cons

    Where to even begin? The reason they are so generous with giving vacation time is because they know the workforce would revolt and leave the company without any breaks. Most people have a “it’s not my job” attitude, so nothing gets done on time ever. Nearly every single project is now late, causing the stress level to become unbearable for some people. Many qualified workers are nearing retirement age, leaving the outlook for the company within 5 years to be pretty poor. Most newer workers aren’t vetted or trained properly to function in their roles, even at the most basic levels (HR does an absolutely terrible job at vetting resumes, many recent hires skill sets don’t even match their resumes). The social attitude of the plant is also hyper-conservative, which can make some people feel uncomfortable. The upper level management of the plant has absolutely no clue as to what the current industry activity has done to delay all their projects (They just tell people to improve delivery but have no follow up or process to try and improve, and even if they did, the current industry conditions are the same all over in terms of delivery). Most people seem stressed out and prone to temper (which I don’t blame them). It just seems like a fruitless effort at this point, most hard work becomes irrelevant or just ignored due to the chaos of the building. Not a place to feel excited about the future. The location is also in a run down little village, making the commute even more of a depressing endeavor. And I won’t even go into why the worst companies to deal with are OTHER Atlas Copco entities. Maybe in the future things will be different, but for sure not within a 5 year period.

    I worked at Atlas Copco Comptec full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Office dynamic is mostly good Decent benefits Good retirement plan Potential for growth if one is motivated Most of management have an open door policy

    Cons

    In my experience, there was little transparency. Understand that employees don't need to know every little thing, but a little more communication goes a long way.

  4. "Good for Paying Bills and Flex Time, Bad for Advancement and Training"

    I worked at Atlas Copco Comptec full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Flex Time is by far the biggest pro. They also will pay for further education as long as it's relevant to your position or position you wish to work up to. Every year and a half you can seek a new position if one is available and you are qualified for the position. I also very much enjoy speaking with the specialist and learning from them as they have years of experience and are rich encyclopedias of knowledge. I also enjoy the cafeteria which is very reasonably priced. Good selection in the vending machines as well. The shop floor is open to office employees (not to say we should be hovering down there) to inspect your jobs or others to get a better understanding or catch mistakes. Also, the shop floor workers are very helpful and always willing to explain (as long as they're not swamped). I'm sure there's more but I feel this is a good list for now.

    Cons

    Very little training is given to you as a new employee, if it can really be called that. I personally enjoy the challenge of trying to learn everything I need in order to complete the task at hand, but eventually you can’t ask the right questions if you don’t know what the question you’re trying to ask is. Uniformity is also an issue. Due to the lack of training, many groups perform tasks using different methods. Because of this, when an end user within the company (i.e. Aftermarket, Quality Assurance, etc.) goes to grab information, it may not always be as clear or even in the same location as another group. Advancement in this company seems to be a perk of granted only to those friendly with management or have been there for a very long time. Without training, a capable employee is unable to advance at any rate considered reasonable. In my final years there, specialists were quitting or retiring at an accelerated rate with no active plan to replace their knowledge, experience, or workload. So, often this work was put on the unappreciated few who were willing to work their butts off. Although I wasn’t their long enough to consider having gained “loyalty” I had seen many 20, or even 30 year veterans paid off to save the company money. Instead of working with employees to cut costs, they often resort to layoffs.
