    I worked at Aker Solutions

    Pros

    Salary is ok, but not up to market standards.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunities to movement. Mostly, lip service, don’t take interest in career growth. Widespread favoritism, management without a vision. Lost market place against the competition.

    I worked at Aker Solutions full-time

    Pros

    People with no aspirations can easily work here.

    Cons

    No growth in terms of position or salary. Very bad if you start your career in Pune Subsea office. Systems and technologies are not updated.Work comes in bits n pieces from Norway and other regions.Then at the time of appraisal u are asked if u did something extra other than ur work.No place to show competences n expertise.Career gets spoiled here.Please don't join even if they offer u more than other companies.

    I worked at Aker Solutions full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Flexibility and work /life balance and Gym use.

    Cons

    Aker Aberdeen is basically moving all project based work from Aberdeen to Reading, Brazil and Malaysia so there is basically no security of working there any longer. Management aren't interested in the people only the numbers. No training is given to anyone who joins the company. Internal jobs are always filled before interviews are done, internal politics to keep jobs amongst friends/family. There is no career opportunities either but if you offer to move to Reading you will get a promotion just because they need the experience down there.
