    I worked at 2H Offshore as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Where to start.. fun people, lots of free food (and occasionally free beer), great work/life balance (though there is some overtime depending on project), and a decent variety of projects. Very flat management structure - project teams are the primary organizational unit. All in all, a very good place to work if you enjoy offshore consulting.

    Cons

    Offshore is inherently a bit of a volatile business due to being so dependent on oil prices. That said, 2H isn't in the habit of making layoffs when things get tough, they just stop hiring for a while. Also, you're gonna be working on risers and conductors pretty much all the time, so if those aren't at all interesting to you, you might be looking in the wrong place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.

    I have been working at 2H Offshore as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Family Oriented, great organization, flexible schedule, Team Buildings, professional place to work at

    Cons

    They are on a hiring freeze and I am only contract.


  3. Career potential is linked to social status, not performance.

    I have been working at 2H Offshore full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I can blend in to the background fairly easily as long as I'm sociable with people. Gives me time to look for a place I can actually grow my career next.

    Cons

    The company management seems to be in place because of how long they've worked there, not because of any solid leadership or people management skills. They tout a 'culture' that they love so much, but it's basically an excuse for them to side step any hard decisions that might improve morale. Social status also seems to weigh heavily in 'performance' reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Actual peer-to-peerr reviews for your employees, because we see things you don't, or won't.

    I have been working at 2H Offshore full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits; incomparable annual leave for a company in the U.S.; the VPs are easy to talk to; focus on the future shows sustained growth and expansion; interesting projects; future endeavors are leading to continued room for personal growth; opportunities for travel to various locations, both short-term and long-term; employees feel like individuals and significant contributors to the company's future

    Cons

    some projects have very short delivery schedules which can lead to long hours

    Advice to Management

    Presently I think the company is headed in the right direction and management is on the right path.

    I worked at 2H Offshore full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits and Vacation Time

    Cons

    Mandatory Overtime, no work life Balance. If you like someone dropping off 16 hours worth of work ten minutes before the end of the day and stating "I'll need this done before 9:00am tomorrow" then this is the place for you!

    Advice to Management

    Team building and free beer does not a great work environment make.

    I worked at 2H Offshore full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None. Small set up, strapped for cash no resources

    Cons

    No professional growth, The company wants you to work 12 hours a day and get paid only for 8 hours, no bonus, lots of politics and people trying to step on each other to move up the ladder. Try to stay way from this mess regardless of whether u are entry level or experienced engineer.

    Advice to Management

    Learn some humanitarian values and try to treat people correctly.
