    Pros

    Consistency in policy, shoreside support takes care of guys working on assets, always someone at the office I can talk to to get an answer from. Small time feel company that seems to really care about their people.

    Cons

    Small deepwater fleet for the time being, positional bottlenecks may happen. Travel policy for some guys is not the best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep it up! Great change from prior employers.

    This place used to be a great place to work. Now they try to hard to become just like Transocean, which is not a good thing.

    I worked at Rowan Companies

    Pros

    Team mindset from rig personnel.

    Cons

    People in the office creating no value added work to offshore employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget that you built this company with good people. This is Rowan, not Transocean.

    Pros

    It's a hard working company with good values. One of which is work-life balance.

    Maybe a bit reactive in my department. A bit of the chicken little syndrome.

    I have been working at Rowan Companies as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Team work is a big plus at Rowan. I was always able to go into any department and find answers that i needed without feeling as if I were in a competition.

    Cons

    I really can't say that i had any cons. I had an awesome boss and great colleagues to work with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work. Rowan is a company that is 91 yrs and growing. Although the industry is hurting right now I see no reason for rowan to fail. they are a strong nit and frugal company and i know they won't take this lightly.

    Half days Fridays, nine paid holidays and two floating holidays

    Current Employee - Driller in Gulf, TX (US)

    I have been working at Rowan Companies (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Safety, Training, Mentorship, Career Growth Potential. Good pay. Good benefits package.Challenging work atmosphere.

    Cons

    Sad that Rowan had to transition to match the rest of the modern industry. The retirement package (pension plan) and lack of lay-offs (decades of history) made it a special "family" to work for and with. I will always be grateful for my time with the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the philosophy of "A Premier Product for a Premier Price". Continue to invest in your employees: not only in compensation packages, but in training and career growth/advancement potential.
