    Where the Inexperienced Excel and Experienced Go No Where

    Material Coordinator (Former Employee) Morgan City, LA

    ProsWork and money to make a living

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Very Poor, No Growth, No career advancement, cheap management

    Design Engineer (Current Employee) Aberdeen, Scotland (UK)

    ProsGood place to spend time without doing anything

    ConsManagement is inexperienced, they don't know how to manage skills. Worst of all, to save the blame they fire people. I have seen more then a dozen people who were walked out from the gate. Very political environment. You don't need to be talented or educated to be a senior, but you should know how to butter people. Its one of the worst places I have ever worked.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPl educate yourself.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Cool products, but not a good place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsInteresting products. Seemingly good reputation with customers.

    ConsLow morale, painfully poor communication within the organization, culture of keeping employees as contractors rather than bringing people on full-time, inconsistent treatment of one employee vs. another (poor or non-existent HR protocols), departments do not work together as a team, but instead work against each other, culture of HUGE egos that get in the way of productivity, etc.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTeam-building training maybe? All I can say is that many of the problems seem to come from the top.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    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.

    You are going to learn a lot!

    Design Engineer (Current Employee) Chandigarh (India)

    ProsYou are going to learn softwares, machine designing and a lot of technical aspects of Oil & Gas Industry. The team is a small one in India right now, so, learning and getting recognition for the work: both are easy.

    ConsThe remuneration is not up there.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe remunerations should be reconsidered at first.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
