Great job, great people, sad to leave but industry suffering from market conditions
Project Groups Manager (Former Employee) – Rosyth – 19 January 2018
Very busy, non-stop place to work with flat management structure and approachable management. Recent market conditions made job very hard in last 2 years with continuing redundancies which affected morale. People I worked with were great.
Shame that one girl who was the queen bee and can decide not to train you. Three whole days went by without a word spoken and when asked questions was given one word answers. Not a good place to work for me, I was a bag of nerves the whole time due to the bad atmosphere. Pity the next poor sod that gets the job.
No career prospect or plan, Ignorant and backstabbing American Management
Project Engineer (Former Employee) – Rosyth – 10 September 2016
Worked in the Subsea Services and Rental team and there was no direction on whats been done, no career progression and the American Managers was treated like god by his cohorts from Houston. Avoid by all means.
Fair enough company to work for, but higher management do not seem to appreciate the work that is done. My department is made up of skilled men who know what is required of them and respond accordingly.
Turn Around Technical Clerk Lead (Former Employee) – Billingham North – 28 June 2016
I had a brilliant time working for Oceaneering on the shutdown, It was a great environment to work in and everyone was helpful and friendly towards one another. My day insisted of gathering the technicians reports after they had tested parts of the machinery on the plant which I would then write up and report to the appropriate company and department. The hardest part of the job would be the long working weeks without a day off, however as it was a shutdown and the work was only temporary I didn't mind this, plus everyone else was in the same situation so we just worked together to make the job more enjoyable.
ROV Technical Support Engineer (Former Employee) – Dyce – 23 February 2016
If im completely honest....... not a good company to work for but it was a start in oil & gas for me. After 3 years, with no training, and no push for management to progress in my career there, i finally decided to resign and move on to something else that i could learn from. I wont review highly of this company at all, it may only be the department i was in that wasn't very good, and over all the company as a whole may be excellent. My experience with them certainly wasn't a positive one.
Electronic and subsea UT technician (Current Employee) – Aberdeen – 26 November 2015
Whilst onshore, work can be very stagnant and days tend to drag without somthing to keep the mind busy.
On busy days however days can be good with new ideas and new tools being developed and tested so something new to learn. As well as a chance to test old skills to keep hand skills up to scratch., mid manager level is very good supervisor know whats going on all the time and are happy to help with any issues and willing to stop to teach a new skill. upper management don't seem to grasp what work is being done and feeling in the entire work place seems to be undervalued. co-workers are a great team to work with with everyone pulling their weight no one shy's away from work and very focused on getting any task complete no matter how much prior notice is given.
Laid back place to work, good team to work with everyone committed to getting job done
Working hours are inflexible and pay for the Work achieved is very poor. No progression laddar
floor cleaner (Former Employee) – all over – 13 October 2015
Oceaneering could be a great place. The employees are talented but are left with legacy leadership that can't think out of the box. They don't allow their employees to be creative or empower them to do great things. If you are "Old School" this is a great place for you to settle in and go with the flow. Those that are creative and talented have no path, direction or ability to grow. The individuals that have been at the company less than 3 years don't stick around for this very reason. The leadership team needs to wake up and take notice of the talent walking out the door.

operator (Former Employee) – rosyth – 6 January 2014
I lasted only 6 weeks even though I had more experience than most. Got paid off due to going for to many cigarettes, but it was my boss who was telling me to. Manager had digs at down syndrome children, disgusting.
good job if they like your personality
terrible management with nowhere to go with a complaint
