    Pros

    Very safety oriented and committed to quality. Great benefit package and decent salaries. As it pertains to salaries, may not be consistent across all branches of organization. Great opportunity for those starting there carriers, and those on the professional side of the business.

    Cons

    Morale in some sectors can be on the low side. Employees wear many hats, and some may be come over whelmed with work outside of their scope.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on moral issues. Work on consistency for entry level employees.

    I have been working at Oceaneering International full-time for more than a year

    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!
