High Expectations, Expat Heavy

Auditor (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

ProsLots of travel, competitive pay, good benefits, good work life balance (when not traveling), no micromanaging.

ConsExpat heavy. If you aren't an expat there does not seem to be a lot of room for growth throughout the company. The culture is like a high school where gossip rules conversation throughout the organization. Review process is done very unfair and poorly executed. The company is constantly entering into crisis mode from one problem to the next. Working here can feel like a roller coaster. They do not lay clear career paths out for employees. I never knew where I would be one year to the next.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive more job security. Also, layout career paths for high performers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good work environment. Moderate pay and benefits.

    Third Assistant Engineer (Current Employee)
    Houston, TX

    I have been working at Transocean Offshore Deepwater Drilling full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Rig-based employees are encouraged to attend paid training courses during time off. Employees are fully vested… Cons: Benefits and pay for rig workers seem to lag behind other companies, resulting in high turnover.… Advice to Senior Management: Raise pay to reduce turnover. Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
