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

    Pros

    There was so much to learn allowing yourself to develop professionally and personally. Great opportunities for progression and very well remunerated.

    Cons

    It was hard on some point to balance work around my personal life but I liked it so much that I would not mind to a certain extent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take yearly appraisals more seriously and tie it to remuneration bonus/benefits (even though it is a HR formality, many people do need it to motivate themselves and push)

    I have been working at Aggreko full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Everyone is willing to push ahead to achieve the goals. A can do mentality for large projects. Possibility to relocate to many countries.

    Cons

    High workload, ethos of work all out can be draining. Not as family friendly in some regions work life balance needs to be managed by individuals or you can work too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider how your employees can get a better balance of work and home life.

    Former Employee - BI Developer in Glasgow, Scotland (UK)
    Former Employee - BI Developer in Glasgow, Scotland (UK)

    I worked at Aggreko as a contractor (less than an 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!

    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.
