    International company with motivating and friendly work invironment

    Tender Coordinator (Current Employee) Lysaker (Norway)

    ProsBeing a large international company, there are many influences and many cultural aspects that enrich the work environment. It colours the organisation and gives it a vibrant atmosphere.

    ConsThe senior management level is lined with many Norwegians, which does not represent the internationality of the company. Norwegian work mentality sometimes differs from internationally accepted mentality, making it a challenge (but not impossible!) to do business.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A great company with a great working environment

    Tender and Sales Trainee (Current Employee) Tranby (Norway)

    ProsVery international: you will meet so many different and interesting people. Aker Solutions gives you the freedom to make what you want out of your own position; flexitime, tasks, office locations and so on. Aker Solutions is well known for taking good care of its employees.

    ConsAker Solutions is a huge company and because of its nature this makes some things very time-consuming (everything has to go through so many people before it can be successfully confirmed), which again can be frustrating to a certain level.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
