I have been working at Helix Energy Solutions full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The company is expanding and has tried to improve salaries and benefits recently. Training has improved and a new atmosphere of advancement and promoting from within has started to be enacted.

Cons

A lot of cut corners on there offshore assets but some are from previous management that have since been replaced. Still on the low side for salary and benefits but the office is aware and trying to keep improve.

Advice to Management

Put more money into quality equipment and vessel systems, especially in the beginning to ensure but results. Continue bring compensation up to industry standards.

    I worked at Helix Energy Solutions full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Helix is a good place to work if you want to learn. There are plenty of opportunities to branch out into areas of interest outside your job description.

    Cons

    Politics and incongruous treatment of employees inhibits organizational progress. Employees are over worked and overloaded. Management turns a blind eye to employee morale. The HR department is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Take a break from the balance sheet and focus on the true assets of the organization, the employees.

    I worked at Helix Energy Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Salary and work environment very excellent. It can be a good place to work if you land in the right department.

    Cons

    If an individual has a key/critical role at the company which can significantly impact the bottom-line, he/she is protected by upper management, no matter how poorly they manage their employees, how poorly they communicate and despite unbelievably unacceptable behavior towards employees.

    Advice to Management

    There are certain types of management styles and behaviors which are entirely unacceptable. When an HR department must get involved repeatedly, it is time to take a hard look at the situation. Additionally, each department seems to be an island with completely different ways to doing things and there is not a lot of effective communication between groups. Too much suspicion etc. A well thought out and implemented management policy would be a good idea...
