I have been working at Diamond Offshore full-time (more than 10 years)Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDoesn't RecommendNegative Outlook
They pay very well for a person who has a good work ethic. Benefits are very good and inexpensive. Lots of good people have worked there for many years.
When the price of oil goes up everything runs great and moral is good. When the price of oil goes down so does moral and soon after layoffs start. There had been 3 before the time my job was eliminated. They don't past down the bonuses all the way. Stops at management level.
Advice to Management
They don't plan ahead for the lean times, even though the company is in the black. They don't manage that well as far as number of people that are really needed. Most se the company making money so they spend money.
