poor
A very Poor man management system with a system of nepotism and favouritism taking a priority over qualifications abilities and experience, relying on Staff employees to cover vacancies for which they have no prior experience or Knowledge.

Made to feel like an outsider.
In the shetlands it is a click system, they dont make you feel like a part of a team in any way and if you only give me 150 characters how can i tell you more.

Supervisors had their favourites
Poor training, no help from co-workers. Bad atmosphere. People with no experience or education were employed if they knew someone working there, because of this employees with knowledge of computers etc. had to show them how to do basic tasks on a computer.

I have worked with Aker solutions for over 8 years progressing from plater to general foreman laterally. I find the position of supervisor very rewarding and enjoy organising work scopes.

Moving to low cost manufacturing centres
There are plenty of knowledgeable people willing to share skills and information.
Management are terrible and are trying to close the high skilled manufacturing sites down in favour of low cost centres with cheap labour. No real career progression, I would no longer recommend this company to anyone.

Good and bad
Working here is somewhat good. Management are ok generally . The pay is average. Job security is average. I do not feel that secure. The Rota is below average. 3-3 3-4. The 4 weeks off is good but the 3 away is horrible. Its to much and it doesnt just affect the employee. It affects my kids, the wife and has quite a detromental affect on my family life. In a nut shell i dispise this rota and will be lioking for a 2-3 asap

Not busy due to downturn
Typical day is having to hunt down information that should be available in the systems.
Learned a lot about quality and Lean.

Management changes far too often.

Culture is difficult to change.
Pros
Good work/life balance
Cons
Morale of workforce is low

Productive and enjoyable
Great company to work for, provide various courses as well as further education courses to help broaden your knowledge. I have learned a lot about Subsea Controls while working at Aker Solutions, while carrying out repairs I have seen various different products that they provide to our customers.
