    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

    Work and money to make a living

    Cons

    Too many "still wet behind the ears" people with bigger positions than they're qualified for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring mainly women right out of school then giving them high positions just for your own eye candy. It's an age old known fact about Oceaneering. I'm not saying that anyone should and could perform a job but it's very strange that young and attractive girls, with very little to no experience are promoted quickly while the less attractive aren't given such opportunities or equal salaries. All it takes is one look to see that looks and skirt lengths are the key factors to achievement there.

    Current Employee - Service Tech in Houston, TX

    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.
