    I have been working at Atwood Oceanics full-time (more than 3 years)


    Small size allows responsive management and authority usually comes with responsibility, as it should but unusual in drilling contractors.


    Small size means limited resources. At times people get overloaded but since they get to make a difference most are ok with it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't sweat the small stuff, nobody gets everything right every time, just keep trying your best.
