    I have been working at Diamond Offshore full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay and really good benefits. Decent work environment. I work around some really good people.

    Cons

    "Cheap Charlie" Very tight budgets resulting in a very poor travel experience and accomodations. Not on par with industry standards. Flying on any-ol-airlines, sleeping in dirty beds and living on half per diem rates gets real old real fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none.... I'd like to keep my job

    Former Employee - Oiler in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)

    I worked at Diamond Offshore full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay, benefits and time off rotation balance. Great company to work for.

    Cons

    The people you work for will stab you in the back if they do not like you and will find any reason they can to get you terminated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Before termination takes place on shore management of that department needs to have an interview with the employee to give that person a chance to explain a situation there is 2 sides to something. Not just to take the word of the higher authority of the person.
