Safety Training Coordinator (Former Employee), Suriname, Guyana, Greece, Israel, ItalyMarch 30, 2015
Pros: Working with different cultures
Cons: Time away from home.
Overall, there is nothing bad to say about Atwood or any of the other companies I've worked for...they all produce different challenges, all of them are learning opportunities.

A typical day on a drilling rig...morning reports had to be completed by 05:00, 05:45 pre-tour safety meeting for maintenance crew, in the office for any walk up business such as Permit to Work issues. 08:00 was the client operations meeting, then out on deck for coaching opportunities. 11:30 pre-tour safety meeting for drill crews going to work. In-house training needs conducted after lunch (these consisted of Confined Space Entry, Fire Watch, FOCUS, Working at Height etc). 17:45 pre-tour safety meeting for evening maintenance crew. 18:00 submit that days FOCUS (Behavior Base Safety) cards.

Atwood Oceanics Review
Functional Lead (Former Employee), Houston, TXFebruary 5, 2015
Pros: flexibility, skill development and training.
Cons: lean resource management policy.
Most days consisted of resolving break-fixes in the production environments.

Working closely with in a small group allowed one to learn many different areas within the company.

The lean staff ideology built very close working relationships with team members.

Safety Training Coordinator (Former Employee), Houston, TXDecember 12, 2014
Pros: time off
Cons: time spent away at work
In charge of training and safety for 180 personnel on an offshore drilling facility.
The hardest part of my job is just being away from family for 21 days at a time. Good trade off was equal time off. Still hard to miss my children growing up day to day.

Good place to work
Drafter (Former Employee), Houston, TXFebruary 24, 2012
Pros: great company to work for
Cons: little training
It was my first job out of college and it was good. I was under contract for a year and learned little about offshore drilling. There was no training, just got in and started drawing. Pay was good with no benefits. The 2 other draftsmen that were there took me under their wing to teach me on their downtime.
