Pros

Good company with a challenging business model.
Generally very profitable company in most parts of the business cycle.
Generally very fair with bonuses, etc.

Cons

O&G side of business has been for sell for a long time. This causes paralysis on that side of the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Very top management is almost exclusively focused on things other than operationally improving the company. Many of the things they are focused on (investment community, asset sales, etc.) are necessary but somebody needs to drive lasting process improvements throughout the business. That skill seems to be absent in executive management.
Solid, timely and consistent communication with employees is also sub par.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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