    I have been working at Aggreko full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has always treated me fairly and is very ethical in its dealings. The type of people that become successful at Aggreko are the ones who get great satisfaction from working on a 24/7 "first responder" type team. Aggreko thrives on helping customers who have emergency needs, or maybe even needs they didn't know they had. I have never seen a company that would go to the great lengths that Aggreko does to make sure a client is happy with our service...that is in our Culture. We have also had some great leaders over the past 20 years that drove this Culture.

    Cons

    Because we will double in revenue twice within a 10 year period, we have had to bring on a lot of new people who may not understand or like the Culture on which Aggreko was based (see Pros). These type of people usually do not last very long in the fast pace that Aggreko demands. We have also had to put a lot of process into place to deal with the growth which has been painful...but expected.

    Advice to Management

    Quicker to fill open spots...we are still under-tooled in the people category. Work / Life balance needs to be a bigger goal. Address under-performance quicker as well.

    Pros

    world class working environment, customer service oriented, best place to work as professionals.

    Cons

    more politics, less equal opportunity, no job security

    Advice to Management

    please give equal opportunity to others and give a growing chance. take the voice of the employees directly and ignore the media or channel which never help to reach the right information to the top. as voting and ask employees the problem, as ignoring problems wont help the company to grow, it only help the employees to leave and the make the situation worse.

    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 Management

    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)
