Small pension contribution. Minimum annual leave entitlement. No bonus scheme. No annual pay rises.
The current state of the offshore survey industry is shocking. It is picking up though. The oil price drop caused a lot of the work to dry up which meant less profitable contracts had to be undertaken. Recently the company has been acquired by Royal Boskalis Westminster, this can only be good news. The drive of the company is picking up and the future prospects are looking bright. The base salary is quite poor, but it scales if you put the time in offshore. Hopefully this will improve as the industry picks up. I do recommend this company. For the duration I have been here it has been welcoming and hospitable. There are some characters and difficult personalities but it is no different to any other work place. There is the potential for the company to become very niche in the services it provides since being acquired by Boskalis. Changes are being implemented quickly and are being fed back to current employees in the form of a newsletter. I am hoping the pace of this continues and the prospect for larger, specialised projects increases. Gardline is a place where you can learn the fundamentals quickly and apply them in the field. You can obtain a lot of experience in a short time frame.
Reasonable pension. Reasonable health cover and you can earn roster days if you work weekends depending on your role.
Pension is good. Offshore allowance is sandwich wrapped in dogshit. Free meals on board.
Best: Bupa healthcare and flexi-time. Worst: Healthcare doesn't include dental and there, no opportunities to buy shares in the company and you can't work from home.
