Exciting place to work but quality of life is not good. Business demands sometimes require short-notice travel.

ProsLots of travel, sometimes exceeding 50% of the time. The company does well to take care of employees during business travel.

ConsShort notice travel for long periods of time wreaks havoc with family life.

It’s amazing to work with a company like Aggreko, under extreme pressure and specific targets

Loved the company but management ran me out the door

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Aggreko full-time

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

ConsNorth 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 Senior ManagementTime to address some of your "tenured" management

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good company to work with

Senior Position (Former Employee)

I worked at Aggreko full-time for less than a year

ProsCompany 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.

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