    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Aker Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Good working environment, reasonable benefit package.

    Cons

    Weak management. Lot of talking but no action strategy for the UK business. It's just a location with low corporate tax and London is a nice place for VPs and the like to spend some time away from Norway. Zero investment in people and training. Continuous changes in the organization, each time accompanied by a round of redundancies.

    Pros

    Cons

    Saturday working, Overtime allowance not on time, Ø Monotonous work Ø No job security Ø Company policies are on paper only but in ground level nothing happened as per the policy Ø manpower /bandwidth issue, if you have applied for leave then last minutes can be cancelled even though it is approved at 1st time Ø Lots of discrimination in-between female & male employees, “female predisposed company” Ø Management totally third class they never observe candidate ability…
