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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    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.

    I have been working at Atwood Oceanics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good training provided, crews help each other and there is a lot of support from technical departments. Pay is better than industry standard, 401k is excellent and so is healthcare benefits.

    Cons

    penny pinching of some upper management can run off some good people. Communication on important details to the work force is vague. People in positions where they are not competent as the management training says they should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that the rig crew are what make a good rig run and can make the company a lot of money. Without them there is no money for the office staff. Keep the rig crew happy and secure and everyone benefits.

    I worked at Atwood Oceanics as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice Atmosphere - Warm feeling

    Cons

    when you are a contractor you are treated as such. The hiring managers are awful and need to be trained.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are trying to draw people to the company make them feel apart of the company not excluding them.

    Pros

    Offshore oil and gas drilling company that engages in the drilling and completion of exploratory and developmental oil and gas wells worldwide.

    Cons

    Good company overall. The Employee development department could use some "fresh faces" the personnel are not qualified and have poor unprofessional behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should audit the professionalism of their employees unacceptable, less than par behavior.

    I worked at Atwood Oceanics

    Pros

    Atwood is probably one of the better offshore drilling companies to work for. The pay and benefits are better than average and with a small fleet it is easy to stay on one rig for long term. I would recommend them over many others.

    Cons

    The main downside that I noticed was management on my rig to allow a certain person to have more authority than his job title allowed for.

    This drilling company in many respects is just like any others in how they treat their people. Certain people are treated better than others and can at times have to do with job title.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management should preach and enforce the rules that are in print.

    Keep up the good work
