    Pros

    Hercules at least will not make high demands before expecting a full commitment on writing JSA's, Work Permits, Crane Inspections and other forms of documentation.

    Cons

    A lot of special treatment for certain personnel. They don't train well on the job.

    Advice to Management

    At least give the mates some experience that is not job related before expecting them to break out.

    Pros

    There's a rotation schedule 14 days on and 14 days off so on your time off the quality of the time off is really nice if you don't mind being away for the other 14. Over half of the time you work is OT. If you want to make a little more just stay out on the rig a little longer. Good start to getting your foot in the door offshore.

    Cons

    If you don't like manual labor or working outdoors you won't like it. Lacking in training and development for rig personnel. No travel per diem so what you spend on driving out to the dock is out of pocket.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a better training and development program for employees, with a culture that clearly encourages a lot of advancement.
