[QUOTE=rigdvr;68769]Sounds like it didn’t work out?[/QUOTE]
No sir it didn’t, but no matter, I am in Singapore again as master on a better vessel making more money and with a company who knows that the maritime aspect of operating a vessel is as important as the function of the ship. That my friend is something that Noble Drilling has no clue of and shows no sign of finding anytime soon. I am glad to be done with such a backwards draconian bunch and recommend them to no one who is able to find employment with any other company. Noble Drilling’s HR department is particularly backwards and unable to appreciate the marine people they have, but drilling hands are revered. Such is the world of drilling but Noble is the worst of the bunch. Besides they pay at least 20% less than TO, offer a shitty medical plan (very few in network providers), have terrible 401K matching (only 2% & 3 years to be able to keep it), have the lowest longevity bonus of any drilling company, only pay $100/day for training, do not arrange transportation for GoM crews (they don’t even offer a crewchange van from the NoLa airport to Boothville), are 3on/3off. Every other deepwater drilling company if better than ND imo.
