I worked at Aggreko full-time

Pros

Great benefits, opportunity for travel, continuous growth, provides a great service

Cons

North America - Upper management refuses to address poor performing middle management. Continous loss of their most important asset - talent. Many very talented and bright people have left the company due to executive managment failing to address ineffective middle managers. The believe is that these managers have been there 15 yrs or more and are basically untouchable. The staff can be divided in two - Long timers and short timers. Not many fall into the middle.

Advice to Management

Time to address some of your "tenured" management

    I worked at Aggreko full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good non management people to work with.

    Cons

    Management ethics are a matter of convenience. HR backs up managers that lie. They feel that with Texas being an "at will state" they have no need to validate any reason for firing someone. When requesting meetings with HR management to resolve dispute issues, they ignore you.

    Advice to Management

    Learn what Talent Management is, train your people on equal employment laws, and start over with your entire training and development team... they cannot even develop their own team, let alone others.
