    Good company to enter the subsea community.

    Service Tech (Current Employee) Houston, TX

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

    ConsA 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.

    With Oceaneering International the website is unique no disturb.

    Ordinary Seaman (Current Employee) Houston, TX

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

    Cons1 )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 Senior ManagementIs 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..

    Engineer (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsGreat Opportunities. Performance based pay. Great exposure to clients and upper management. Very challenging yet exciting work.

    ConsCompany suffers from poor management in some key positions. Needs better leadership and vision.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAvoid filling the gaps in processes and job functions and focus on getting existing employee base to increase performance with incentive based pay and recognition.

    Project Engineer

    Project Engineer (Current Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsA big pro is the quantity of work and fast paced. Good hands-on experience. Get to go offshore. Get to see results. Few meetings, few emails.

    ConsLittle training. Communication can be better. Divers and other non-degreed personnel are promoted to Project Managers. Since this is their first time working in an office environment, they are not used to tracking budgets, schedules, leading teams, and communicating effectively.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere is little motivation for the working troops. No comp time, overtime, or bonuses based on the qty of work that gets done. However, upper management gets bonuses based on amount of work that is brought into the company. Therefore, workload is every increasing, but same pay for those who are doing the work.
