At my time here, a certain person made it very difficult to carry on work at this depot, but other members were great company and hard working, felt pushed out

For a multinational company the service and repair department is appallingly outdated and poorly ran.
No higher management interest whatsoever, extremely poor tooling and equipment. NO TRAINING WHATSOEVER!


A real waste of a department considering the workshop engineers have a fantastic team spirit and generally a great group of people to work alongside with no troublemakers or slackers.


Average wait time of 8 weeks on parts, usually a lot longer.

Very limited space and resources and experience within the workshop is withering as experienced staff are leaving and not being replaced with skilled staff.
Pros
Good Working hours and great personal benefits package!
Cons
Poor higher management, no training and general lack of investment in workshop and staff.

The company is interesting to work for. The products are quite basic but interesting to learn about.
The management is quite disjointed and there seems to be no clear direction in the business.

Alot of the systems for bill of material creation/CAD maintenance do not work very well and are cumbersome to use at best.

Money involved for contracting was good. Was literally no job security at all. We're told on a Friday we had no work for the following week a couple of times. Immediate manage!entire was ok but further up it was pretty awful. I think they believe they are a much bigger and !ore successful company than they actually are. According to long term employees the company has got worse in the last few years.
Design team are hopeless, worked with no drawings for months.
Pros
Good money for work involved.
Cons
No job security and poor drawings

Throughout my time at Aggreko I learned a wide variety of new skills and was fortunate enough to work on a lot of interesting projects. Aggreko provides a very comfortable working environment, with flexibility on staff holidays and requirements. The development team is very inclusive and willing to provide help to each other day in and day out. Overall, working at Aggreko has been a very positive experience.

Testing mainly gas generators daily , working on a wide range of controllers and interfaces. The job is enjoyable and my colleagues are great. Management don't understand the workers and have slowly reduced morale in the workplace.

This could be one of the best companies to work for, the structure is there to make it a world leader, however it always seems to fall at the final hurdle.
