    Good benefits. Culture values safety.

    They don't value some employees as much as they should.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are a service orientated business. The number one asset of such a business is the employees.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Can be very fast pace

    Cons

    Upper management making decisions on things they no nothing about. It is a buddy buddy system, if you want to advance into upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Talk to your employees that are on the floor, they know what really is going on.

    Make change and improvement a culture of the company. Not one sided lip service.

    I worked at Oceaneering International full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    11 paid days off, if you aren't forced to work them

    Cons

    Accrue sick days and vacation days, but are denied usage of days or chastised for having too many.the managers that make the "big" deductions for you, don't even know your name. If you are a "beautiful" looking1 person that fits their mold of youth.you are a shoe-in. If you stay and have to start using your health insurance and sick days to get well, be prepared to get your resume updated and distributed because your time at this place is limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house and get managers that don't have swords hidden to stab their employees in the back. Oh yeah, how about a lie detector test with reporting employees asking the questions.

    This company is on the verge of selling,and will use every last ounce of energy and ideas from its employees to get that top dollar from the buyer. For those of you there, your are. Idiots for staying. For those of you considering that what I say is exaggeration,God help you. Don't say I did not warn you. I only put one star because I have no choice to put something.

    Pros

    Oceaneering is a company that takes pretty good care of it's employees, I think. Good pay, great benefits, holidays, etc.

    Cons

    Serious issues with consistent workload. Sometimes there will be nothing to do for months, and sometimes everyone works late night to push a project through. Very poor upper level management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what your department heads are saying, they know what's going on in their group a lot better.

    Pros

    Nice people to work with. Safety focused. Company is growing which provides more opportunities. Good benefits. Opportunities to move around within company.

    Cons

    Not good training program. Not well structured organization with opportunities to get promotions. No bonus package for entry level or mid level employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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.

    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.

    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.
