    Inspired in the start, but quickly became suffocated.

    I worked at Aggreko full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    If you want hours, they have them.

    Too big to fail.

    Variety of equipment and jobsite scenarios.

    Cons

    very clique oriented team of techs. If you dont't agree with the long timers they will slowly push you out the backdoor with support of middle management.

    Pay raises are stagnant.

    Very chaotic in how they handle parts.

    Handheld time/parts system is trash, they know it, they refuse to accept it.

    Bump caps, what a joke.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get with the ground floor employees about issues on jobs/in shops instead of the filtered and politicised report given by lower/middle management.

    Pros

    Great benefits, opportunity for travel, continuous growth, provides a great service

    Cons

    North America - Upper management refuses to address poor performing middle management. Continous loss of their most important asset - talent. Many very talented and bright people have left the company due to executive managment failing to address ineffective middle managers. The believe is that these managers have been there 15 yrs or more and are basically untouchable. The staff can be divided in two - Long timers and short timers. Not many fall into the middle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to address some of your "tenured" management

    I have been working at Aggreko full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great opportunities to work on new projects. Business is growing.

    Cons

    No personal life. Expected to work 24X7. Make wasteful decisions. Organization not very organized. Experience is not valued... "do as told"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people.... not just the surveys.
