    Pros

    Industry comparable pay.
    Aggressive growth strategy

    Cons

    Bankrupt! Too fast too soon.

    Advice to Management

    Bad market timing. The aggressive approach would have paid off in a different environment.

    I worked at EMAS full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of good people with good experience. Company was willing to hire new grads so there was opportunity teach and learn. Decent middle management.

    Cons

    Senior management. VPs heady with false sense of power. No alignment, tons of bickering (openly), finance department was severely constrained due to mismanaging the money (many vendors paid YEARS late). The big vessel build was not a good idea. That combined with ultra bad senior management was the downfall of EMAS,

    Advice to Management

    Big ships require tons of backlog. Even in a thriving market, two smaller vessels may be more cost effective than chartering a big, expensive pipelay vessel. If management is all over the place, this creates an unstable work environment for employees. Have a common plan and present yourselves with professionalism and maturity.
