    Pros

    Very good environment to learn and contribute to new technologies. Many industry standards are created from this company and CIO is very enthusiastic towards new technologies.

    Cons

    There were a lot of reorganization done recently which has created a lot of shakeups which declined the productivity, the promotion process is tied with deliverables of goals but the goals are set so late in September that we could not meet.

    Advice to Management

    Please reduce the benefits cost that employees pay and provide bonus during December rather than April, lot of people will celebrate holidays even more happier. Also please include HR to intervene into employee relations rather than just allowing department heads to manage employee services, HR organization was merely used for administrative purpose only.

    Pros

    Opportunities for advancement if you are willing to work for it.
    Support from experienced and diverse work force, they were always willing to help when needed

    Cons

    Arrogance pertaining to safety alienated some potential customers and employees. But by the same token some customers respected Nabors because of it.
    As with most oil related companies the cyclical nature of the oil business can also be a con.

    Pros

    Company will allow you time to get to know your job position details, lots of support in the field from coordinators and other technician employees. Provide housing and super benefits package. Very big on meeting safety standards and will not question decisions based on good safety practices.

    Cons

    Management is unavailable. Culture is base and interaction toward promotion is difficult. Lots of promises of pay upgrades but difficult to achieve due to Nabors standards of training outside the states at corporate in Texas. Work can be very difficult physically due to climate and weather conditions in ND an MT.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the weak links and streamline the pay grade process. Concentration on overtime usage versus customer service is wrong focus. Customer service wins business. An employee that gets the job accomplished and is reliable is well worth the extra in overtime pay. More bodies does not equal more work accomplished. Misuse of resources should be monitored better.
