No advancement
This is the old boys club..you do not advance if not liked by the circle within,even if you have outstanding qualifications. Standing on your head is un-noticed and ignored. Just a number
Pros
Good salary
Cons
Long days

The comany is in a constant sate of Re Organization
Sandvik is a Swedish company and every decision needs complete collaborative buy in before the decision is made. The company bought a new WHS?TMS software in August 2017 and it have only been implements in one small warehouse. All three major division, Sandvik, Sandvik Mining & Rock Technology and then Parts & Services which I worked for all had new presidents in the last 8 months. Many good, experienced, knowledgeable people have left the company recently either on their own or through downsizing. The company seems to be in a constant state of re-org.

Great place to work
Great place to work with fair wages and lots of opportunities for advancement. Unfortunately our plant recently shut down to move to the USA which is requiring me to seek work elsewhere.

Ok comme place
Pour les mécaniciens ou techniciens, c'est un endroit sécuritaire et propice à des postes de longue durée. Pour ce qui est du Management, les bureaux chef veulent croître et changer, mais certaines sous-stations ne veulent pas de vagues ou de changements. Donc le travail en supervision ou direction est très malsains. Bonne continuation à ceux qui s'y sont en place!

Great place to work until affected by global footprint reduction.
Up to date technology, comfortable work environments, opportunities to travel.

Regular cost of living increases.

Safety, safety, Safety.
Safety is well taken in consideration but employees are seen as numbers at times, job security is not there so if planning a long term perhaps not the place, salaries are hard to increase, skills and knowledge is not taken in consideration when giving an increase.
Pros
good people to work with
Cons
low pay.

Good company
The SMT division is the oldest in the Sandvik Group and has evolved a lot in the last 8-9 years (2009-2017).
The company offers great opportunity to learn and progress in your career as well as offering you a lot of options to sharpen your technical and soft skills.

Overall a good company. Can get advancement if you can get yourself known in the right circles.
Comfortable place to work. Great set up with cafeteria and gym. Is a global company with main offices in other parts of the world so focus on North America was reduced.

To robotic like
I've noticed that the staff members that have been with this company for many years just do the job. They stopped thinking for themselves, and almost have a 'Oh Well' attitude. Get's very frustrating.
