PT Student Worker/Intern: HQ Corporate Legal Department Houston, TX

Student Worker/Intern - Legal Filing (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at Transocean part-time for less than a year

ProsI really enjoyed working here part-time for a few months while I was in college. The legal and corporate executives were very friendly people who allowed me to keep a flexible schedule around my classes.

In sum, I appreciated:
Friendly people
Flexible schedule - I created my own
Nice corporate office
Great central location

My supervisor always made sure I put my academics first and would check in to make sure I had a good balance in my schedule between work and school. I could take time off or change my work hours when I needed to - no questions asked.

ConsNo real big downsides that I can recall, however I was not employed full time or permanently so my experience is limited.

I imagine that if I worked in the C-suite over a long time could get boring? I'm personally not a classic "corporate exec type".

ProsThey are professional, high safety standards look after the employees very well, they have a good name in the market, good pay masters and high standard of training given to the employees.

ConsThey have too many expats a bit of politics faced by Indians that's why i left Transocean too much of paper work and a lot of favourism.
