Pros

Benefits - "some" co-workers are OK to work with.

Cons

The Gulf Region was poorly managed. Once you got on the VP's bad side, you could consider yourself out the door.

    I have been working at Marine Spill Response Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, generous 401K, occasionally very exciting work that makes a difference

    Cons

    Unless you are management you are not taken seriously and are made to feel that you are not a valued team member. When you attempt to discuss your concerns with supervisors or HR you are blown off. Very poor life/work balance. You are made to feel guilty and shamed for not attending company events on your own time. No flexibility, very rigid policies, not much room to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start treating your non-exempt employees with more respect. Sometimes supervisors are the issue, not their subordinates.

    I have been working at Marine Spill Response Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    * generous 401K, competitive benefits, decent vacation

    Cons

    * employees required to be on call 24/7/365 - no compensation for on call status
    * employees must be available to respond within 2 hours notice, and frequently are away from home for 3 - 4 weeks at a time.
    * Exempt employees do not receive overtime pay, and work 12 - 18 hour days, 7 days per week
    * Very little promotion potential - very basic raises
    * Salaries are far below industry averages
    * Management receives very generous bonuses, while rank and file is ineligible
    * Very high turnover rate, few new employees stay for more than a few years
    * Extreme working conditions while on spills - long, cold/hot days
    * Has become very lean, not enough employees to handle volume of steady state work
    * Poor work-life balance - management is never satisfied, always demands more from employees regardless of how it impacts family life
