    I have been working at Transocean full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good culture, good compensation, good benefits. Hard work is rewarded. People are very friendly and great to work with. Management is very smart and understands business. Great place to work. Half day Fridays. Casual Fridays. Company is positioned well for offshore recovery.

    Cons

    Long hours can be rough, no more pension, runs a very lean operation often doing the work of multiple people at other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Retain employees by paying them more. Provide more transparency about career progression.
