Pros

Hornbeck is a well respected company within the community. Management treats the employees well by offering them good compensation, benefits, stocks, and a great yearly bonus. Hornbeck has hired professional, intelligent, and friendly people that demonstrate good business judgment and devotion. I consider myself lucky to work for such a great company.

Cons

Lack of communication between departments can be poor at times. However, this is pretty common in large companies. The mandatory annual vessel ride for shoreside employees is a harsh rule that is strictly enforced. The purpose is for the "land"employees to gain respect for the offshore crew, although in my opinion they elect to live that lifestyle and are compensated well for their career choice. The vessel ride is difficult for those with a demanding schedule, motion sickness, and have a family. You are usually out of the office for 3-4 days with no communication with the outside world.

Advice to Management

Senior management is competent in their decision making but if I could offer them advise it would be to calm down on micro management and be careful with constant promotions. Change is a great thing but too much change is annoying.

    I have been working at Hornbeck Offshore full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent coworkers, newer equipment. Pay is ok, but not great.

    Cons

    -Hiring from from outside instead of promoting over-qualified people from within.
    -extremely poor planners- your work schedule is liable to change up to the day before you are supposed to arrive for work
    - crappy 28/14 work schedule
    - vessel managers and crew coordinators think no one has the option to leave, so they bully people and frequently threaten with "if you don't like it you can quit" over minor requests

    Advice to Management

    Work with your current employees instead of constantly disregarding them and screwing then over
