Pros

Good Stock and 401K options, Friday afternoons half day.

Cons

Long work days with overwhelming global supply chain issues at every point. Several out of date systems that bog work flow. Heavy debt issues with vendors struggling as much as department staffers.

Advice to Management

Good Luck working out the Peoplesoft merger issues!

    Advice to Management

    take a closer look at your safety programs. Change or adapt the procedures that aren't working rather than continuing to add more

    Pros

    Meeting people as I travel throughout the world.

    Cons

    As with any company there are downsides. For Transocean it depends on your job. If you are in Projects, as I currently am, then you sacrifice time away from your family as 90% of you job will be on location. There are times when your family can visit, but there are projects that can be in remote and even dangerous parts of the world (i.e. Nigeria) that can drag out for six months to a year. Another down side for working with Transocean is the nature of the industry. Currently the industry can not hire people fast enough, but there will be a time when the market corrects itself and we could have a repeat of the 80's, early 2000's, but I guess this can be said for other industries.

    Advice to Management

    To be more open with information that will effect staff.
