Pros

The benefits are decent and there are plenty of oportunities for professional development. Transportation to and from vessels is paid for by the company, as well as professional training pertaining to your job description.

Cons

There is no profit sharing with the boat crews and boat crew members loose individual safety bonus upon someone else's fault on an incident, althoug not personally involved. Also, it seems like the paper work is geeting out of control.

Advice to Management

We need to accomodate people who need to work over time during their time off. During this times of economical recession a family man who works away from his home and family needs to make at least 65K.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Most of the time you get your checks without errors. If there are errors in it the usually have it fixed and put on the very next check two weeks later.

    Cons

    They are not very understanding when it comes to the employees personal life. They routinely ask people to work two and three month hitches to cover for undercrewing.

    Advice to Management

    Do not intimidate employees to get them to work long hitches or to get them to work for less pay. People understand that sometimes pay has to be adjusted, but to hold a persons job over thier head to squeeze everybit of productivity out of that person you can is just not right. It becomes a safety issue when people believe they have to work 16 hour days or risk being fired.
