    I worked at Oceaneering International as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly Staff most times when they're not thinking they're better than others.

    Cons

    Employees are becoming just numbers, losing small business nature fast. Headquarters shifted to Houston which now treat the former headquarters in Morgan City as "red headed step children" and get all the important jobs. Contract employees are lured with high wages and promised long term employment which ends much sooner than told. Contract employees are treated unfairly with no benefits. When they're with you, you're done, finished, leave the facility at once.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more committed and treat employees as people not like tissue. It's becoming a place to learn then leave for a better salary with better companies than stay. Try keeping who you have and keep them happy. Give contract employees full-time opportunities to continue.

    Pros

    Culture improving. Support from management is good but could be better.

    Cons

    Annual reviews not strong and hard to improve compensation from gained training/ school experience. History of low to no raise annually.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Impliment a strong annual review process and provide raises based on improvement and contribution to company goals and profits. Performance based bonus would be nice addition.

    Pros

    Good company with great brand recognition and market share
    Very competitive pay for some positions
    International footprint is excellent

    Cons

    Managers are less educated than subordinates and lack ANY management skills
    Company fails to identify bad managers by high turnover and strong employee dissatisfaction
    Morale is very bad under certain manager & that person is very condescending, aggressive & unorganized
    People do not speak up against pervasive disrespect and the lack of integrity
    Managers have little managerial development and there is no real performance review for those bad managers and their detrimental actions in the IT organization - SCM Cost Accounting

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of managers that put the core ideals of company in jeopardy and remove the employee disrespect. Many good people exit company due to bad management and lack of basic respect.

    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.
