    I have been working at Rowan Companies as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Team work is a big plus at Rowan. I was always able to go into any department and find answers that i needed without feeling as if I were in a competition.

    Cons

    I really can't say that i had any cons. I had an awesome boss and great colleagues to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Rowan is a company that is 91 yrs and growing. Although the industry is hurting right now I see no reason for rowan to fail. they are a strong nit and frugal company and i know they won't take this lightly.
