We are considered third party contractors and therefore, we are not employees with benefits. We are paid only daily rates when we are offshore working. The leadership in the office is good at responding to questions while offshore on the job.
Because you are third party contractor there is not really career development happening. There is offshore work and that is primarily it. You may get paid increases but they are very rare now adays and instead there has been steady and significant pay decreases. For veteran observers that can be as much as $125 a day paycut..which is a huge decrease when you only work 6 months a year. There is no ladder climbing because you are not employees.
