    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    In the European sector, the Triumph rig is very modern with the best drilling equipment available. The Highlander which will work in Europe is also high spec.

    Cons

    They have hired a rig management who get things done through fear rather than mutual respect. People who were previously established with Hercules have been replaced with those who worked with the new management on previous rigs, predominantly from Northern Offshore and Prospector Drilling.

    Advice to Management

    Advise rig level management to stop firing people to make way for their friends and previous colleagues. It is no coincidence that all who are being hired in the European sector have strong links to Northern Offshore and Prospector drilling.

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

    Pros

    Allows independance
    Great diversified group of personell

    Cons

    Lacks leadership
    Business falling under the crack of poor management decisions

    Advice to Management

    Change management. This is happening as I write this. Focus on direction too small to compete with other larger Drilling companies hence loss of contracts in competitive downturn
