Company in disarray...sadly..
Technical Manager (Former Employee) –  Asia4 January 2017
LR drilling like academic certificates and not experience and sadly this will see the demise of them in the drilling industry as they are top heavy with academics and have very little experienced personnel left as they have all left and work for competitors.

The leadership, Senior Managers and Managers in drilling from top to bottom are full of inexperience and rely on even less experienced staff to make them look good by trying to fudge the numbers....and for a long time the lack of revenue is being hidden behind one excuses after another. Lots of corporate jargon will get you places and protecting your job hiding behind some false title will also assist your chances of remaining.

LR have acquired many companies and have a reputation of damaging all of them and this will only stop when they get some focus of where they want to be and then employ a strong unbiased leadership and do not get the trash who bluff and who hang on in there from the acquired companies.

I am certain that less than 10% of the staff from the acquired companies are still in place and there within lies the answer.
Pros
You can leave
Cons
You might need to stay if you cannot get a job in a good company

Senior Lifting Engineer (Current Employee) –  Aberdeen City6 March 2016
Typical day at work is dealing with customers, advising them and helping to make sure that their design is safe. I have learned a lot about the design rules and regulations. Management in Lloyds is one of the worst I have ever seen. Nobody is making real plan and execute this. Most of the engineers are working on its own without any control. In this kind of environment has happen in few cases that the budget was blown. The co-workers are average some of them are good, some of them are not good. The hardest part of the job is to obtain engineering programs licenses. In many cases the job couldn't be done in particular time because lack of software. The client opinion and information that my commitment is exceptional.

A place with many opportunities to generalise or specialise.
Engineer Surveyor (Former Employee) –  Lowestoft, ENG12 January 2016
During a working year the workload varies greatly as client requirements and workloads changed, sometimes seasonal and other times due to the state of the economy.
By far the most enjoyable part of the work was the range of work type: It was vast, qualifying welders one day and offshore undertaking verification work the next, sometimes on your doorstep other times many hours drive away. Whilst this kept the job fresh it was mentally exhausting at times.
Working for the society was sometimes frustrating with many systems slow or unhelpful. As most parts of the industry the experienced people are retiring with no formal method of mentoring or knowledge retention.
Most co-workers were great to work with, always willing to support or offer assistance and usually with a sense of humor.
Pros
Working in a small outpost office with a high degree of autonomy, A great deal of industrial experience throughout the company to draw upon, Good benefits and remuneration.
Cons
Increasingly restricting authorisations and typically under resourced.

LLoyd's Register was very demanding, and employees were given little respect
Surveyor (Former Employee) –  Chicago, IL9 December 2015
A typical day very challenging because it required many long hours and travel 6 days a week. Employees were overworked and under respected. I did not see my co-workers except at meetings, etc.
The hardest part of the job was dealing with Indian managers that did not care if you understood them when they were speaking and always thought they were better than you and their condescending attitude.
Pros

Cons
poor management
