sem tech (Current Employee), Aberdeen, SCT – February 11, 2014
Cons: away from home
I start the day with checking in with whom I am taking over from. I could start at any part of the job as I have learned the job from start to finish. So I could start by getting the kit from stores or doing a pressure test or hyperbaric to assembling end plate to the chassy which requires wiring ,diodes ,hypertacs card guides assembling end plate once – more... done its over to qc then test . Then start all over again I have learned so much more about the oil and gas and how things are made and put together to bring the oil ect from various locations as safely as possible. The workers are pretty good and up beat. hardest part of the job being away from home – less

Administrative Assistant, Procurement Department (Former Employee), Tucson, AZ – July 20, 2013
Pros: my hourly pay was very good
Cons: the departments within the office were not working together, making it hard on the procurement department to do their job, the company did not offer any drinking water other than tap water.
Aker Solutions supplies temporary employees to Jacobs Mining and Minerals, Inc., in Tucson, AZ. I was able to learn how to enter information into a proprietary database that had its quirks but was efficient and easy to learn. The person I was trained by was efficient yet controlling; my manager was fair and was trying to mold the department into a more – more... efficient and cohesive one. The workload wasn't as intense as expected, so my contract ended. Because of the transition of the department from one director to another, my co-workers were a little stand-offish, yet they were trying to get along. The hardest part of my job was making my trainer happy with my work. – less
A group of hardworking people who cares about the requirements of clients
Engineering Manager (Current Employee), Pune, MH – June 7, 2013
Pros: freedom in taking decisions
Cons: work load will always be at peak, if you are sincere in your work
Open door policy of superiors makes you feel more comfortable Flexibility to accept any changes or stiff targets makes an imbalance of work and personal life during the peaks of projects Friedly working environment makes it enjoyable to work
Instrument Technician (Former Employee), Elgin Platform – April 8, 2013
Pros: plenty of online courses
Cons: a bullying culture in maintenance offshore.
I worked Offshore with them for one year, after which I chose to leave. The salary was low for my Trade, with little room for increase or progress. There is also some bullying offshore and the H.R department is weak. The platform is O.K and modern, but sleeping quarters can be noisy as they are in the hull beneath the utilities plant.
ET (Former Employee), Katy Texas – February 6, 2013
Not good place to work. Many problems with customer service. Management dont care and safety is a problem. I seen them hide cut/old lifting straps so customer wont see them. They continue to use the same straps
