I worked for diamond for 20 years busted my ass for them I bled gray, I got laid off. there are guys that are still there that have only been employed 5 years and are lazy as hell, I know from first hand experience because they worked for me, instead of bumping people back so they would have a job and lay off last hired they just laid you off when your rig stacked. I asked if they were going to call me back when oilfield picked back up they said no I would have to re-apply for a job because they laid to many off to call everybody back, they have no respect for their employees, I hope they have to stack all their rigs and go out of business.

Diamond Offshore is an absolute despicable company with horrible senior management. They pose a front advocating safety and being a respected upright industry player. Nothing and I mean nothing could be farther from the truth. This is are the most corrupt company in the drilling industry. The senior management lie to there clients constantly about everything under the sun. They will doing anything possible to keep a rig on rate, this includes lying to Customers and employees, working unsafe equipment, you name it. Marc Edwards and the rest of the Management are low life scum. I hope they go under soon. Absolute Scum!
The oil industry has always been the same, The front line workers on the rigs work their a– off for years and years, but when the oil price falls so does the company loyalty.
The people who didn’t laugh at the TP jokes or joined in the “Cleek” are the first to go and the brow noses are the ones who get to keep their jobs
Was like that in the 80,90 and 2,000 and will always be like that
It’s not what you know it’s who you B—w
Marc Edwards ran that company in the ground. Between him and that clown Ron woll, they made stupid investment decisions into moored aging assets that nobody wanted, low spec with limited capabilities. Keep painting the t–ds with block chain, ingenity and all Your other pixy dust smoke and mirrors....All BS and your customers see right through your stupidity. Your the laughing stock of the drilling business....should have kept to pumping cement! Clowns!
DO is cut corner and not good to work for
Great to see oil low and stay low, hope it goes lower
I have no regrets. Traveled the world on diamond dime and now terminated. Time to start my next adventure.
Wow, sorry about your experience. Sounds like not much has changed from when I was laid off in the 90's. HR "leader" was good b/c he sure knew how to keep his job. Glad he finally retired. A lot of people that did not get laid off back then were not quality employees. Favoritism definitely played a part when Arethusa was acquired. I see now nepotism also took place.
I worked for them and paid for my house, my car and all of my stuff with cash. I didn't live any better than I could afford and now that I'm laid off from a job that by nature could end at any second......all my sh-- is paid for and I work a normal 9-5. Life is great.
I worked there for 22 years and never thought they would do this to me. Has anyone received any kind of severance pay??? I've heard some have.....
Transocean isn't any better.
All the Rig Managers kiss asses get to keep their job on TOI's working vessels.
Elton Cherry, Paul Johnson, you know who you are.
I also busted my a-- for them and than got cut as well. Mark Edwards open your eyes if you have dependable people that honestly work for you give them some appreciation for their dedicated service don't just treat them as a convict once they get cut for your own personal benefit. And get some real people that actually can work in HR not those whom act like robots when they finally do respond to your questions.
I hope they go under. They let people stay that can not write their own name.
...i hope they go bankrupt....and oil stays low forever.....the company is full of nepotism...those of you from mississippi...and alabama.....probably don't understand that big word....basically....their daddy..or father in law..got them,... the job.....screw diamond...a.. sh--ttthole of a company....
Diamond Offshore gets rid of the good people and keeps the uneducated ones with no type of high school diploma or experience in their company
Wow! Im sorry to hear that because I know a young man that works there and all he does is brag about how the job is laid back and he does nothing but run the clock lol his name is Rondale Wiggins I know he's only been working there for about 2 years something will come up for you better than that remember only the strong survive during tough times be blessed
