Pros

Hornbeck is a well respected company within the community. Management treats the employees well by offering them good compensation, benefits, stocks, and a great yearly bonus. Hornbeck has hired professional, intelligent, and friendly people that demonstrate good business judgment and devotion. I consider myself lucky to work for such a great company.

Cons

Lack of communication between departments can be poor at times. However, this is pretty common in large companies. The mandatory annual vessel ride for shoreside employees is a harsh rule that is strictly enforced. The purpose is for the "land"employees to gain respect for the offshore crew, although in my opinion they elect to live that lifestyle and are compensated well for their career choice. The vessel ride is difficult for those with a demanding schedule, motion sickness, and have a family. You are usually out of the office for 3-4 days with no communication with the outside world.

Advice to Management

Senior management is competent in their decision making but if I could offer them advise it would be to calm down on micro management and be careful with constant promotions. Change is a great thing but too much change is annoying.

    Pros

    Most of the time you get your checks without errors. If there are errors in it the usually have it fixed and put on the very next check two weeks later.

    Cons

    They are not very understanding when it comes to the employees personal life. They routinely ask people to work two and three month hitches to cover for undercrewing.

    Advice to Management

    Do not intimidate employees to get them to work long hitches or to get them to work for less pay. People understand that sometimes pay has to be adjusted, but to hold a persons job over thier head to squeeze everybit of productivity out of that person you can is just not right. It becomes a safety issue when people believe they have to work 16 hour days or risk being fired.
