    I worked at Atwood Oceanics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good values that they hold true to. Upper management not afraid to mingle or listen to the "little guy".

    Cons

    Some politics, just like anywhere else really but not terrible. The entire industry is corporate style, so when things get tough they will cut the cord. Not great on promoting from within.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe put some more effort into a "promote from within" mentality.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Atwood Oceanics.

    Interview

    The interview had several steps with multiple trips to Houston. The interviewers were friendly and conducted laid back interviews. They were more interested in ensuring that you fit the job. Though, the process was longer than a typical internship, you left with a good understanding what is expected of you and if you are a good fit for the company.
