    I worked at Aggreko full-time

    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 Management

    Time to address some of your "tenured" management

    I worked at Aggreko (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most employees are very friendly and are willing to help each other. The benefits are ok. Career opportunity for people who are willing to sacrifice their personal life (family).

    Cons

    Work life balance non existent in this company!!!! Top management does not show appreciation to employees who are working over 12 hours a day to get financial reports done. If you want to have a life outside the work this is not a company that you would like to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Show more appreciation and respect to employees who are giving up their personal life in order to get the job done.

    I have been working at Aggreko full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Stable company with many locations around the world.

    Cons

    Employees are not appreciated. We are given minimal support by upper management and unreliable computer systems but we are expected to do the work of 5 men every single day.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes and show appreciation for your employees before they are all gone. More and more people are leaving Aggreko every day and management is not taking any responsibility for the environment they have created.

    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 Management

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