    location is good and benefits are excellent, private medical, able to buy and sell holidays

    "Poor staff development"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Friendly staff and professional working environment, offshore crews all strong performers and know their vessels inside out, good place to work in boom times

    Cons

    staff development wasn't great, no real drive from upstairs to develop individuals, seemed to be down to each individual person to generate their own career ambitions and if you're boss wasn't interested then it was difficult

    Advice to Management

    be bold and move away from the old boys club of keeping your mates in a job, it's very obvious to all the staff underneath and reduce the number of managers
