Pros

Atwood is probably one of the better offshore drilling companies to work for. The pay and benefits are better than average and with a small fleet it is easy to stay on one rig for long term. I would recommend them over many others.

Cons

The main downside that I noticed was management on my rig to allow a certain person to have more authority than his job title allowed for.

This drilling company in many respects is just like any others in how they treat their people. Certain people are treated better than others and can at times have to do with job title.

Advice to Management

Senior Management should preach and enforce the rules that are in print.

    I have been working at Atwood Oceanics full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The work schedule is good. Pay is good as well. Benefits could be better. The equipment is good and new. Rig is in good shape.

    Cons

    Industry is in a slump. Layoffs are around the corner. Pay cuts have started already. It will probably be another year and a half before the industry picks back up again. Foreign tax credits should be paid at least a portion of it.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees like they matter. Don't be so business minded that you forget to take care of the people that make the company successful. Give international people better incentives to work overseas.
