    I have been working at Diamond Offshore (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pay is great and benefits are second to none. Remaining personnel are tight as they lean on each other more.

    Cons

    Corporate management has no idea what they are doing in the downturn. Quality personnel are being laid off and incompetent personnel are being allowed to stay. When things return, management will have no one to blame but themselves for the inadequate personnel they are left with.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up!! Use proper evaluations of personnel and stop keeping personnel who are not capable of bringing the company through the next level. Signs now show a pathetic level of ignorance, incompetence and laziness. Sad at best.

    Pros

    Good pay and really good benefits. Decent work environment. I work around some really good people.

    Cons

    "Cheap Charlie" Very tight budgets resulting in a very poor travel experience and accomodations. Not on par with industry standards. Flying on any-ol-airlines, sleeping in dirty beds and living on half per diem rates gets real old real fast.

    Advice to Management

    none.... I'd like to keep my job

    Pros

    Great benefits, excellent pay and training! Lots of time off and paid travel.

    Cons

    Everything is a secret, people are always trying to stab people in the back and you have to know somone in management to get the good assignments, regardless of how well or hard you work.

    Advice to Management

    People are destroying equipment with zero accountability! Don't hire and fire people based on their friendship and personal history with management, instead focus on integrity, work ethic and skills.

    Pros

    Small intimate working environment. Co-workers nice and willing to help. Work is challenging and rewarding. Working hours are flexible and leadership willing to allow some work from home.

    Cons

    Company not very proactive when coming to embracing technology in organizational development. Some managers have been with organization 30 plus years, so new ideals and progressive thinking is low supply.
