    Current Employee - IT Support Analyst in Aberdeen, Scotland

    I have been working at Aker Solutions full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fantastic team to work with, Constant Workload that varies, Large variety of people and experiences to be had, Truly Global reach and distribution

    Cons

    Decisions are not communicated clearly or in a timely manner, Perception of a very big communication gap from the top to the bottom despite the company working hard to create the impression that there is not, Too many decisions are taken with the benefits to Norway being the main thought process and not much thought being given to other regions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Align regions and work processes so there is less worldwide communication and time lost waiting for people in other time zones to take action or make decisions. Be more open with employees and contractors about what is happening, and involve them more.
