    I have been working at Weatherford Laboratories

    Pros

    I do like working for the company - the people are great. The familiy feeling you get is hard to beat. We do work hard. When we get time - we play hard too.

    Cons

    When you get hired on - ESPECIALLY SALARIED POSITIONS - You are working 24-7. Your phone becomes a leash and you don't have a life away from the job. Asking for time off is - well - almost impossible. You get two weeks a year - why can't you use it? Asking for it is like sitting on pins and needles. Even when you get it - they try to make you stay and work instead. Management otherwise is pretty decent. Not sure the money is competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    These people (most of them) that work for you are pretty die-hard.You already have our loyalty. It would be nice to get some more recognition for what we do and compensated appropriately (monetarily and vacation).

    I have been working at Weatherford Laboratories full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I would say stability, job security, pension, some overtime and benefits

    Cons

    No career development, seen people doing the same job for years, if any vacancy comes up no chance to fill it internally
    Basic Pay
    No advancement,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think over all lots of management staff comparing to the number of employee, secondly they should give more chance to internal employee the opportunities to advance and develop in their career
