    I worked at Transocean part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    All employees are top class and know the value of time. Very result oriented, optimistic and team players. Whoever I had the pleasure to interact was very nice by nature and by profession.

    Cons

    People are a bit busy sometimes. There were few occurences when I waited for few weeks to get feedback on the work and proceed further.

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

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    No 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".

    I worked at Transocean full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    They 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.

    Cons

    They 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should visit the rig and talk to the crew should have a cost controll avoid unwanted parties.
