I worked at Rowan Companies as a contractor for less than a year

Pros

Down-to-earth, sensible people working hard to deliver offshore resources. A great team built primarily / historically on merit-based promotions awarded to folks who started at the bottom.

Cons

None, really. They treated me well and provided the opportunity for a self-directed Internship, for which I am very grateful.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recommend focusing more on military veteran recruitment and retention.

    Pros

    Decent Salary and decent work hours.

    Cons

    Lack of true leadership in several departments. More managers than actual leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rowan Companies need to train their managers how to be leaders and remove unfit managers from their positions. Prior experience needs should be considered when determining positions within the company.

    I have been working at Rowan Companies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Employees and management are genuinely nice.
    The company culture makes employees feel valued.
    Work is varied and stays interesting.
    There is a strong sense of ethics and values.
    The company is growing rapidly, while some positions must be filled "from the outside" the company is also serious about promoting qualified individuals.

    Cons

    The salary is not quite as competitive as some of the larger companies that are also HQ'ed in Houston.
    Since the company is growing rapidly, some departments are understaffed, and employees are swamped.
