Not genuine

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Global Santa Fe Drilling Company

ProsWhen I was onboard Global Santa Fe rigs the pay was reasonable and the safety bonuses also made a difference.

ConsSafety bonuses were paid only if no accidents were reported: People stopped reporting accidents (they still happened). If an accident was reported everyone on the rig lost their bonus resulting in massive pressure not to report them.

A just do it attitude. Dont question every day tasks onboard their rigs. They have a massive turnover of staff who question on the grounds of safety or other. If you question, you're gone.

Hypocracy. I watched toolpushers highlight during safety meetings things that shouldnt be done only to do them very things themselves half an hour later.

Example: "dont go down the hatch without a harness on". 5 minutes later I watched as the man who told me this went down without a harness.

Luckily for all, GSF has now been taken over by Transocean so the attitude will likely be better. This company however has a terrible safety record and those who created it are still there: even with a change of name.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo what you say you do. Treat people with respect.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Nice pay, but senior management are a bit dense

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Global Santa Fe Drilling Company


Pros: GSF pays very well. They seem to have money to burn and spend on anything and everything.… Cons: They pay well, but in return you are not allowed to question anything. Senior management speaks openly and… Advice to Senior Management: Some members of management are there because they are slick like a used car salesman, not because they have talent. Take a look at… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
