    Pros

    Great company with a very diverse product and service offering. Job was challenging and rewarding, but not overwhelming. Work environment was always relaxed and fun.

    Cons

    Management was always overwelmed due to dealing with other departments shortcomings. This led to a lack of management in their own department. Quality control was questionable at times and showed no signs of improving.

    Pros

    Managers are always willing to listen, company has great benifits

    Cons

    Having to account for every penny spent even if it is required to fullfill job expectations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quality is better than quantity. We sometimes need to spend the money to make money. The bottom line is important but a great reputation is better.

    I worked at Oceaneering International full-time

    Pros

    Great compensation. I received a salary that was more than I expected. Benefits were also good. The contracts Oceaneering gets are pretty exciting.

    Cons

    I was not assigned enough work, and the work I was assigned was not challenging enough. Most of it did not require a college degree at all. I was not successful at working on the projects I wanted to work on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accommodate your most talented young people, or they may leave your organization.

    If you are use to a small company, this company is not for you. Oceaneering is a big corporation with thousands of employees. Can make a person feel like just an employee instead of part of the family

    Pros

    Good work ethics, friendly environment

    Cons

    salary per hour not good for the techs that can work good with both hands and brain

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    should pay the techs that have hands on experience more than the techs that came from school. Its insulting to an good tech to see a another one that came right out of school makes more and cant even turn a wrench.
