    I worked at Nabors Industries full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers and sporadic opportunities to work on different technologies.

    Cons

    Multiple IT Directors and all are hand-picked by the CIO. Directors are incompetent, micro-managers and hinder productivity, efficiency and don't offer any career advancement. Only opportunities for advancement are if you are midnight buddies with the current CIO then you can leave the company repeatedly and just call the CIO and ask to come over to his house at night to "work out" your return to Nabors. CIO will bend over backwards for his midnight buddies just as they will do "ANYTHING" for him. IT Department is more like a day care with a lot of temper tantrums and then the kids feel better and come back and kiss the teacher to ask for forgiveness. UNBELIEVABLE AMOUNT OF TURNOVER DUE TO NEGLIGENCE AND UNAPPRECIATIVE UPPER MANAGEMENT (DIRECTORS, CIO, MANAGERS AND SR MANAGERS).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace CIO, do real-life competency testing to directors in IT to determine which to replace as well. Appreciate your employees and give them the opportunities for advancement and raises rather than paying your CEO $68 million in 2013 (last year).

    Pros

    Great people to work along side.

    Cons

    Poor management. Managers do not engage their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Before looking outside, KNOW the skill sets of every individual within your department and LEARN how to maximize his or her potential. You might find that he or she IS promotable. Never under utilize anyone!
