I have been working at Rowan Companies full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Employees and management are genuinely nice.
The company culture makes employees feel valued.
Work is varied and stays interesting.
There is a strong sense of ethics and values.
The company is growing rapidly, while some positions must be filled "from the outside" the company is also serious about promoting qualified individuals.

Cons

The salary is not quite as competitive as some of the larger companies that are also HQ'ed in Houston.
Since the company is growing rapidly, some departments are understaffed, and employees are swamped.

    I have been working at Rowan Companies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This career is setting me off on a course for great success at an early age.
    I have been given the ability to travel the world and work with people from all walks of life.
    Currently I am working under a great leader who expects a spirit of excellence and is an example to all that surround them.

    Cons

    There is not always an adequate amount of time between projects and an unsure time that is known to be away from loved ones. Long stints of travel are expected and could be resolved with a backup and scheduled time to travel home.

    Advice to Management

    Give more time between projects or hire more project employees. Allot adequate time to plan for an upgrade. This is not easy as Operations change day to day but it puts a hardship on the company when work needs to be done with an unclear scope of work expected to be completed in an already short amount of time.
