Good Company then?
During the time I worked for Aggreko I was well trained, very good chances for promotion within the company.

If you like travelling and seeing the world and working with people from all backgrounds and cultures and being trained at the same time ,then this is the ideal company to work for.

Constant Turnover
There is a training team who's only job is to train new people. There would be 5-10 temps that would start almost every week and by the end of the month only 2 would be left. There were temps that were there for years with no job offer or employee benefits.

Travel is typically required - and this may include some extended International travel

Hardest part of the job tends to be travel

It’s going through changes.
It had high turn over, due to managment and leading from operations.
It was amazing what they could do, but the process of getting it to market was difficult.

Productive and postive place to work
Great company to work for lots of opportunity if you are open to travel. Plenty of training and variety of equipment to work on. A very different mechanical electrical company from most industries. Aggreko is a different breed.

Good Place and Culture
Great place for young folks that are more mechanically sound and driven. Aggreko has a fantastic learning program for these types of individuals. Good place for experienced sales reps as well!

Not the best place to start a career
Good colleagues, but not leaders. Low level of management. Management does not comply with business ethics. It is normal here when a leader tries to assert himself at the expense of his subordinates. Good salary compared to other international companies. There are benefits. Low level of IT system. I do not advise. I regretted getting a job at this company
Pros
Salary
Cons
Poor management

Culture change
When I first started with the company I really enjoyed the culture and the people. Over the years there were quite a few changes that didn't make sense. There were also staff changes and positions that were not filled that made other staff members work/life balance difficult.

Job Culture
Never felt as if the department was allowed to feel as if they were a "team".
Typical day in Administrative Office was always tense, stressful, very little guidance and help/explanation given in things I would not COMPLETELY understand.

Management during my time if emolyment definitely showed obvious favoritism towards certain department employee's. Was very rude and abrupt as well as spoke to some as myself, as if I was not capable of comprehending, more or less had tendency to make others feel intimidated by her, in my opinion HORRIBLE management trait.
Pros
None
Cons
Short monitored breaks, Manager prying into "outside" work environment/personal lives of employee's

Stand company
Very busy with long non stop days and lots of weekends. Travel is a must.
They are a minimalist company. They do as much as they can with as few people as possible. The company specialist are spread out all over the country. They have no real training program for the daily computer system they use to manage the company.

Lost of overtime, great for hourly employees. No overtime compensation for the salary management employees. They have an annual bonus, It does not make up for the over time.


They do a lot of natural disaster assistance for a fee. They also provide temporary power and AC for special events like the Olympics, the NFL, PGA and boat shows.
Pros
Garaunteed work.
Cons
Does not pay enough for the amount time they expect from you.

Get the pay you want in the beginning
Aggreko as a whole is an awesome company. You get to work some really cool jobs, meet a lot of people, get experience with a lot of different equipment from generators, AC, air compressors, chillers, cooling towers, dryers, and dehumidifiers. You get a company vehicle, laptop, cellphone, IR Camera, company fuel card, and personal use of company vehicles and fuel card is allowed

False promises
Given the culture of what I was told. This company isnt any different from other companies out there. I wouldn't trust management. The pay sucks and certain managers are what I'd consider liars.

Great Company, Stressful enviroment
Overall, Aggreko was a great company to work for, but the type of business, requires a lot of time sacrifice. The benefits are good and the people you work with makes the environment a lot better.
