    I have been working at Aggreko full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Progressive corporate principles.
    Aggreko is making big pushes to incorporate work-life balance, keeping employees healthy & happy, and rewarding people for staying with the company.

    There is plenty of upward mobility if you do your job well and are willing to move. Especially on the Operations side.

    Pay is at or above industry averages.

    Most of my co-workers seem dedicated to the Company and each other.

    Cons

    High pressure, emergency response work environment, especially on Operations side (can be good or bad, depending on your weekend plans).
    High turnover in many positions.
    Operations folks often have to juggle numerous jobs due to turnover.
    Old boy network / nepotism exists.
    Unrealistic budget expectations for sales force.
    Shrinking commissions for sales force.

    Pros

    Good benefits and decent pay. My managers and coworkers work with me to solve problems. Overall it is a healthy environment. There is a yearly education budget that you are free to use to further educate yourself.

    Cons

    The IT headquarters in Glasgow gets the lions share of new positions so relocation needs to be an option if you want to move up the ladder quickly

    Pros

    Aggreko hires some of the best technicians in the industry. Their customer base is solid so there is always plenty of work. Their training program is one-of-a-kind for technicians.

    Cons

    Work life balance not respected by most managers. Paperwork heavy.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the handheld for all work orders, etc. Those things add at least one hour to every job. The savings over a year would be worth getting rid of them.

    Good technical team to work with and unique offerings to the customer

    Advice to Management

    Get more involved with sales, customers and be in the business. Stop managing by KPIs and stop wasting time having meetings about meetings.
