    I worked at Transocean Offshore Deepwater Drilling full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary was good while it lasted.

    Cons

    I worked 15 years for them and when they let me go, I was not even offered a lower position. Not even a "thank you".

    Have some guts to stand up to senior management and tell them what they need to hear.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Transocean Offshore Deepwater Drilling full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, but then they are decreasing as well...so I guess no Pros

    Cons

    Poor Decisions by management to layoff experienced dedicated employees. Don't work for this company- waste of time- you will never mean anything to them anymore.

    I have been working at Transocean Offshore Deepwater Drilling full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The time off and benefits are good. Pay is competitive and higher than land based jobs.

    Cons

    time away from family can be hard, but that comes with the territory of working offshore. The company is going thru the downturn of the oilfield. I am hopeful that things will turn around along with more competitive salary.

    Advice to Management

    Remember the "little guy". It seems in recent years the corporate office has forgotten the people that are out on the rigs. Cutting travel and pay incentives isn't the way to make the employees happy.
