    Pros

    Great salary, room for advancement, challenging and educational work environment. Work at the cutting edge of the deep and ultra deep water drilling industry.

    Cons

    Managers (for the most part) do not stand behind their employees, and will not hesitate to throw you under the bus of problems arise from the use of their equipment. Don't be surprised if you end up as a scapegoat.

    Advice to Management

    More professionalism in the way middle management treats their employees would make this a great place to work for. More stick than carrot is not a good philosophy for developing employees.

    Pros

    Salary was good, but that's how they get you.

    Cons

    Medical and dental are not good, I was forced to pay for a surgery out of pocket, they said it was a preexisting condition but I didn't have the illness until working there for a year. 401k matching is vested, you have to work there for 5 years before they match the full amount. Managers are unqualified and do not know what they want, will not take advice. You will perform the same tasks 4, 5, 6, etc times because managers do not have the experience to know what they want, you give them what they ask for and they don't like it. Employees and managers more likely to yell than fix problems. Shop unable to perform simple tasks in a timely manner creating continual backlogs.

    Advice to Management

    Spend the time to research problems, perform root cause analysis, fix the problems.

    Pros

    Work is there. Nice Facility Benefits are good. Decent 401K Some of the good people are there. You get experience to learn.

    Cons

    Parking Low Morale No ENTHUSIASM NO middle management seminars. Some should retire out with gracefulness. Stuck in the 80's. NEED better communication within dept. Veteran employees need to let management manage. HR needs updating procedures. need team work classes. Gossip less. be interactive HELP employees encourage them.

    Advice to Management

    Step outside and see your departments. Encourage them get involved. Read up on other companies employee help programs. Do some Change!!!

    Pros

    Steady, could become a long running "job". Decent pay and some perks for management, depending on level. Very nice buildings and offices. They take great pride in their facilities management.

    Cons

    Too much to say here. Culture is the problem with this company. Abusive and borderline bullying from many tenured managers. "My way, or the high-way" attitude. Many managers take great pride in themselves for making you feel small and inferior. Best to keep your mouth shut around some. You will actually be cursed out by a few, don't bother with HR, they are told not to do anything about it. Non-diverse culture, no minorities or females above a lead status.

    Advice to Management

    You have a great company with lots of opportunities to improve. Rebuild the culture from the old draconian style of management. Implement Lean and 5S awareness. You also lose millions in scrap and NCR. Perform a DMAICS now and then.

    Pros

    Excellent salary and health benefits. 40-hr work week.

    Cons

    High turnover. Work environment feels like a company that's still stuck in the 1980s. Cubicles, rigid hours and very low morale.
