    I worked at Transocean full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company to work for. They spend the money to do things right. Good benefits 2 for 1 401k match up to 5%.

    Cons

    3 weeks away from family, but you get 3 weeks home as well. You miss a lot of holidays and birthdays.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the people you hire not the policies you put in place

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Transocean (Houston, TX).

    Interview

    I had 1 phone interview with a Human Resources representative and 1 in person with engineers from the company. They were very open and honest interviews and I felt very comfortable which is not usually the case. They were interviewing me to see who I was as a person rather than to see how I operated under pressure.
