    I have been working at Subsea 7 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits are in line with the industry standards.

    Cons

    Managed by power hungry subpar managers that lack people skills and experience. Most all of the Management teams are from across the pond and more are coming in which is a disadvantage to well qualified Americans.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at your middle management teams. They are very unprofessional and lack the core management skills necessary. When your management shows favoritism and gossips like they are back in middle school, you will never be able to retain employees with the true skill sets that will keep your company viable for future projects. The majority of your employees are looking hard to get out, and the moral is is just absolutely horrible.
