    I worked at Aggreko full-time for more than a 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)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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