It’s all about the money
A company that is definitely reactive and not proactive. An occupational health company whom shockingly do not consider staffs wellbeing and mental health priority. In experienced managers with little or no people management skills. They only ever give negative feedback and never give positive feedback. Lack of training and support is a major factor. Staff support each other which is the only good factor. A real upstairs / downstairs atmosphere.

Avoid. Avoid. Avoid
This is a terrible company to work for. ... you need to check your payslip every month as they constantly underpay you. Your personal life is not even a consideration and you are expected to drop all personal time without consideration if you are even consulted. The management are incompetent, some are not medically trained or have not done a day offshore and cannot relate to anything you tell them and look for opportunities to blame staff for incidents offshore. The rest once again will intentionally deceive you or not consider your family priorities. There is no career progression or salary increases ever. In actual fact my salary decreased during time spent there.There was no positives from working for this company apart from making other companies more attractive.
OGUK/Occupational Health Nurse - Bank Hours in Aberdeen
on 3 September 2020
The high turnover of staff certainly indicates what a terrible workplace Iqarus is. Management are the most unprofessional I've encountered ..nurses are not adequately trained for the role but then chastised in the most passive aggressive ways imaginable. Bullying is rife...staff are in tears on a daily basis here. Inconsistent pay points for nurses and absolutely no opportunity for career progression. This company cares only about money and supply their clients with a warm body rather than a trained professional which is verging on fraudulent. It's no wonder Iqarus are losing contracts left, right and centre. Nurses should think seriously about applying for a job here...most leave within the year due to the atrocious work conditions and terrible pay. This is not a nice place to work and if your face doesn't fit management will give you the silent treatment or will work hard to make you feel you can no longer endure such an unpleasant work environment. The worst place I have ever worked.

Possibly the worst oil and gas contractor in UK
Probably the worst contractor in offshore oil and gas. If for some reason you are considering working for this organisation you will be one of the lowest paid individuals on the platform or installation . Pension worth pennies and and zero career development. While the NHS may be stressful at least you’ll be clinically current. In addition they rely on military CMTs who are unemployable elsewhere to keep the wages low. Iqarus management have been escorted out of two operators offices after learning they had lost the contract they spat out the dummy and security was called. Avoid
Medic in offshore
on 17 May 2019
I work as an offshore medic for the company and they are the worst company I have worked for. Our wages have been cut so much that it isn't worth being offshore anymore, we can't leave as they have bought almost every medical agency! We are expected to do 1-2 week courses with no pay. Management are awful, moral in the medical sector is at an all time low. If you are thinking of working offshore please avoid this company.
