    Climbing up can be kind of difficult, it's a good place to start learning but is better to move later on

    I worked at Fugro Chance (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    401k program is good, pay is within line of economy, time off program is good, requesting time off is no problem.

    Cons

    Time away from home due to work in the GOM, long drive from Houston to boarding vessel in Port Fourchon then going straight to shift work is rough the first 1 or 2 days...

    I worked at Fugro Chance full-time

    Pros

    Excellent company to work with before 2014. Great medical and 401K benefits. Average in getting promoted.

    Cons

    Company made management changes and everything got worse. I don't recommend anyone to seek employment in the near future.

    Advice to Management

    Don't promote people if they have not done their previous job first.

    I worked at Fugro Chance full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    60 -70K first year but must put in many months gone offshore at a time. Often 1-2 months at a time if not more. Quality in house training for those willing to come in on days off. Match 401k from the day you start. Health and dental insurance offered.

    Cons

    Only a set schedule of 2 days On 1 day off for those that haven't been with company many years and made supervisor. Makes it difficult to make plans with friends or family.

    Advice to Management

    Offshore employees often feel disconnected from the office personnel. Switching to a day rate or daily bonuses would help moral and employee rention. Nothing more depressing than working alongside a rival offshore company and they are making more money for less work, less of a position, and less knowledge. As well, everyone leaving for greener pastures for other companies and you staying around doesn't help your moral either.

    I have been working at Fugro Chance full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good pay. Great support. New management has made great changes including finally getting rid of some of the dead weight and non-productive personnel.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is still an issue (but getting better). Pay is still an issue, but I am lucky to still have a job in the current market

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the improvements and getting rid of your poorer quality workers.
