    I worked at Oceaneering International full-time

    Pros

    Great work environment. Benefits were very good with both sick and vacation days starting with first day. Medical started with first day also.

    Cons

    When the market drops, so do the jobs. No foresight as to the future. Managers have little say in who is laid off and who stays.

    Advice to Management

    Allow managers NOT HR to pick who is laid off and who stays.

    Pros

    This company is one of the best I will recommend for any of my friends to apply and work for as long as he or she is qualified for any position . There is no discrimination of race or ethinicity be you black or white.

    Cons

    There are some basic weaknesses in some aspect of management which is generally present in any organization; when it come to staff promotions and assignments which some personnel may hope to have attend but delay to be assigned such responsibility. This mostly occurs when their expectations is after the annual budgets has been approved and they are asked to wait until the new budget planning.

    Advice to Management

    They should look into this area very effectively as it may affect production in most cases.

    Pros

    Company has grown their leadership internally, and it works. From J. Huff in the 90's to current..it keeps the personality and culture of the company in tact.

    Cons

    Very widespread geographically, tough to get a handle on all that OII does

    Advice to Management

    J.Huff is legendary, some of his "teachings" really are the best - don't lose these! for example - . no task is below you; you can delegate responsibility by cannot delegate accountability...
