    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.

    Pros

    Good company to work with if you have a jest of self learning. The company will provide you ample time an opportunity to do that. They have good salary increment and good promotion rate will less work pressure.

    Cons

    Sometime you will get so much of free time that you start thinking that I am not learning anything and and work less.

    I have been working at Oceaneering International

    Pros

    Work hardly gets boring as changes occur all the time. The very dynamic environment creates opportunities for employees all the time. Profitable company, has lots of opportunities for news business and should stay on a growing mode for several years.

    Cons

    There is clear disconnection between groups. Business leaders don't communicate with each other what may result in internal competition poor utilization of the company assets (infrastructure and people).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication and collaboration between business leaders has to improve to maximize company performance.
     You can be more aggressive on the opportunities, compute the risk into the cost and get them.

    Pros

    steady work or so they say

    Cons

    Oceaneering does not pay fair salaries compared to other companies' salaries. Expected to work overtime everyday. Paid sick days, but frowned upon if you use them. Layoffs are witch hunts to get rid of those that don't fit in the many cliques. Horrible managers that don't pay attention to you until they decide to get rid of you.

    NO CAREER PATHS!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    learn how to manage PEOPLE!

    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.

    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.

    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!
