If you want to get a consistent paycheck and don't care about your happiness, this is the place for you.
Technician (Former Employee) –  Mid southSeptember 26, 2016
I've worked as a technician for a few years. 99% of employees are miserably negative, no raises other than cost of living and dishonest/deceitful people. What you are told and what happens are two different worlds. Everyone I know that leaves does so because of the negativity. It is almost impossible to advance here without being a dishonest person.
Pros
Consistent paycheck
Cons
Negativity beyond explanation.

Not a company where you will advance very fast in the cooling tower section
Technician Apprentice (Former Employee) –  Chicksha OklahomaSeptember 2, 2016
In the 2 plus years I worked there I was unable to advance and wasn't able to take time to further my education. they say the balance between work and home is even but its not. I would work 14 hr days for months on end and not see my kids other than when they are sleeping. it almost cost me my marriage.

Fun, Challenging work environment which is constantly changing.
Operations Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Linden, NJMay 25, 2016
Every day really is a new day. Never a dull moment. There are constantly new challenges and things move very quickly. Its fun. The hardest part is the hours. Its not 9-5 gig. You have to make your self available after hours for on call situations.

Great technical platform
HVAC Technician III (Current Employee) –  Linden, NJMay 16, 2016

Career advancement is based on other people and those that run the place where you work.. Technical training is great
Pros
Good money if you're willing to put in the hours
Cons
Basic pay is not comensurate to experience

There were no family fun.
Utility Technician (Former Employee) –  Pearland, TX 77584May 16, 2016
I don't have much to say being a utility tech. It took my time away from family, the pay wasn't even good for what we did. In order to make money is to volunteer for overtime for other jobs that were out in the filed, even on weekends and holidays. Has for co-workers for utility tech not enough guys to work. The most enjoyable part of the job was not being on call for the week. But still was back up for the back up.

Work a lot, but with an awesome group of people
Technician (Current Employee) –  Linden, NJApril 27, 2016
Job is overtime heavy, lots of manual labor. They provide training though and you will work on a large variety of equipment with a large variety of applications that you might not normally have the opportunity to work around. Management in Linden isn't very good as of late. Compensation is fairly competative

poor organisation with support elements
Operations supervisor (Former Employee) –  assortedApril 14, 2016
Worked with Aggreko for 6 years.
management changed, no accountability.
very poor support from Logistics, lacking accountability
Very poor support from Technical, lack of knowledge, and very clicky.
Very bad support from HR. Leaving manpower without correct visas and work permits. Incompetence.
Documentation incorrectly completed, on site commissioning and installations. No internal validation carried out.
Finance support on site operations non existent. Use of personal finance to maintain site often required.
Engineers on site...excellent teams, due to site leadership, Management above this, are just not interested.
Achieving the best for the client gives a sense of being needed. However little or no support from own management.
Co-workers always giving that extra mile to achieve best results, but no recognition from management.
QSHE well motivated but very difficult to achieve aims, due to poor support from above elements.
Pros
Good engineers at grass routes, travel, meeting people
Cons
management and support elements very poor

Politically corrupt
Mechanical Technician (Former Employee) –  USAFebruary 27, 2016
The work itself is good, with a dynamic and fast paced atmosphere. There are always exciting challenges, and the prospect to achieve far reaching goals, However, at higher levels there is a corrupt unethical and political culture protecting an unbelievable level of incompetence, (similar to what has been seen recently within the BBC where groups/individuals were "Protected" or unapproachable).
The vast majority of employees are insulated from this through management, but even at Supervisor levels the incompetence and politics can be clearly seen in upper management.
This situation is causing multiple electrocutions, serious injury and death. The "Blame" culture is rife, and both senior HSE and senior HR management are in the "By the book" mode, rather than correcting the issues affecting the company and its employees.
Overall, it is a great place to WORK, but not a great place to have a career. Money is good (in the right area), and it should be treated as a STEPPING STONE to anyone wanting to build a career in a company which actually is a great company.
A final word of warning, when the CEO and 70% of the board get up and leave (as they have in this company), you should have at least two questions at the ready!!!
Pros
Exciting, dynamic, fast paced, good level of common sense, salary (in certain areas).
Cons
Political, unethical, teflon managers, blame culture, mafias.

SALES REPRESENTATIVE III (Former Employee) –  Glen Burnie, MDDecember 23, 2015
I worked at Aggreko for 14+ years and it is fast paced and demanding. Excellent colleagues, but management culture has changed dramatically, and people are leaving due to the negativity and micro management.

Aggreko is a great place to work
Utility Technician (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OklahomaOctober 22, 2015
Aggreko is a great place to work - the family culture makes it easy for you to establish an immediate rapport with your colleagues creating a relatively stress free work environment.

Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee) –  St. Louis County, MissouriJuly 22, 2015
Great Company to work for. Organized, job tasks made clear, and the supervisor was great. I learned about the product how to deal with field reps and sales reps. My co-workers were really good to work with. They each knew their jobs and did them well. The hardest part of the job was leaving.
