    Pros

    Company provides challanging environment being globally placed which gives opportunity to individuals to excel in their career. Employees have to struggle for business opportunities and they will get it.

    Cons

    Indians are not given due Weightage as compared to Britishers and thereby less opportunities to rise. Compensations for Indians recruited in India, are also less.

    Advice to Management

    They should not only give chance to Indian employees but should also be given due importance and employees be paid adequately.

    Pros

    Each project has its own challenges which is good if you like challenges. Possibilities to grow and develop within the company

    Cons

    No work life balance due to long rotations and short leave. This will eventually brake up especially if you have a family.

    I worked at Aggreko as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked briefly on projects within the Business Intelligence system. The system is well set up, with a lot of attention paid to technical coherence and system stability. It's very clear what the constraints are within which development takes place in this system. I was a contractor, but some permanent colleagues were working on innovative projects including integrating of map data.

    Cons

    The flipside of the level of attention paid to system stability and release process is invevitably that the processes could sometimes feel a bit burdensome. This is still preferable to an uncontrolled environment with constant firefighting and chaos. There were some problems involving team members located in far-distant timezones, which sometimes made communication difficult. The hours of work (8-4) are not my favourites hours of the day!
