    I have been working at Marine Spill Response Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Company offers great job security and the benefits and pay are good. The job never gets boring because you are doing something different every day.

    Cons

    Little to no opportunities for upward career advancement. Management plays favorites, occasionally pitting employees against each other and seldom embraces ideas from their subordinates.

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

    Pros

    Good 401k program, pays for license renewal fees, good job stability.

    Cons

    On call at all times. Hard to get a vacation, often management will cancel vacations. Annual performance reviews are biased and not comprehensive. Very little to no promotion opportunity. Management does not listen to employees concerns and comments. HR assistance in times of need are unsatisfactory. Supervisors treat employees as well as other departments as incompetent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow your operating principles, or in time the good employees will go elsewhere.

    I worked at Marine Spill Response Corporation full-time (more than an year)

    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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your management

    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
