    I worked at Oceaneering International

    Pros

    Decent benefits and salary, people are friendly, safety is critical, uniforms for hourly employees, safety shoes and glasses provided if needed to perform daily job.

    Cons

    No work life balance, core values are a joke, upper management is out of touch with the workforce, and a college degree replaces real world experience according to Oceaneering!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    STOP worrying about profits and hire enough people for the work load. Remember that all employees deserve a day or two or rest.

    It will be helpful to have performance based bonuses and also it tied up with company doing good to motivate people to give their best for company to do good.

    Pros

    - There is lots of work
    - There is room for growth depending on who you know.

    Cons

    - Management has no direction on tasks. Most tasks are given vague statements and lot's of interpretation to what is expected.
    - Raises don't exist
    - Everything is due a month before you get to see what needs to be done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Step up on definitions of tasks and allow more people to engage on tasks instead of nit picking hours on each task!

    Pros

    The benefit to learn and grow within the company.

    Cons

    There is only so far you can grow and now the job is less challenging. You need to continuously motivate yourself or you can and will fall by the wayside.

    Pros

    Great company to learn the basics of subsea, hydraulics, electrical and controls. Completions and work over on drill ships, semi submersibles, and platform rigs.

    Cons

    A lot of nepotism, and good ole boy atmosphere. Training was hit or miss: sometimes it was relevant and current and sometime it was antiquated and general. Compensation was adequate for a beginning career but not for a family.

    Pros

    I have been hearing Oceaneering since when I was with my fisheries company in Ghana West Africa.

    Cons

    1 )The challenges here is that most the Seamanship Documents are not accepted, especially EDH, LIFE BOAT, ISPS, FIRE FIGHTING, ELEMENTARY FIRST AID, PERSONAL SURVIVAL TECHNIQUES.
    I have all the abilities, everywhere except mechanical.
    Due to problems I have begin my career goals with (ENTRY LEVEL )

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Is good for them to manage the way they are because inexperienced seamen onboard can cause problems to the company especially during maneuver, use of winches, STS etc..
