    I worked at Diamond Offshore full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Small lean departments, good salary and bonuses. Project management is lean and free of most bureaucracy. Excellent training facility on main admin building.

    Cons

    Be politically connected or else. Fiefdoms and cliques rule the company. Don't get older than 50 there unless well protected by upper management. Rumors fly and are impossible to control. New CIO is slash and burn.

    Advice to Management

    Stop blatant age discrimination, last round of layoffs was massive and targeted those over 50 and not politically connected. Offsite training and career development is lacking.

    Pros

    Good place. It's really hard to say much more since the whole industry is in a crunch. I think with fresh blood it'll be better.

    Cons

    The old guard needs to be retired. They still think. It's the good old days. Once that happens it should get better.

    Advice to Management

    Stick in there nuture employees...looks for new ways of doing things.
