Pros

Transocean encourages cross training amoung all the facets of the business which allows employees to keep from becoming complacent or stagnated as well as develop a better understand of how these facets work together.

Cons

Work loads can be demanding and since a bulk of the busness concerns 24hr a day operations employees tend to have distorted work/persnal time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Travel for offshore personel needs to be of higher quality with more flexibility. Exhausted personnel arriving on these facilities is a recipe for incidents.

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, compressed work week (off at 11 a.m. every Friday), facilities, friendliness of employees, nice location, private office space, paid parking, the company is interesting and exciting.

    Cons

    Managers have heavy travel schedules making access to them difficult. And what does that mean for the average employee? Employee performance evaluations suffer, relationships suffer, communication suffers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce travel for managers of individual contributors.

    Pros

    higher that average salaries, great benefits, pension, half day friday, new employee vacation based on experience and not on time with company

    Cons

    somewhat interesting, not challenging, and frustrating at time due to slow moving management, salaries higher than average for experience that is lower than average, practically no accountability, almost no inter/intra departmental communications despite being on the same project

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to your employees, director level and below managers need to put more faith in their employees and create an environment of risk and reward, and challenge your employees by putting more trust in them which will build trust and make them more accountable
