    I worked at Weatherford Laboratories full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Lack of any competence among managers means you can basically do what you want.

    You can wear jeans to work.

    Cons

    Almost every single thing imaginable. Shoddy equipment, bad reputation, no training, no value placed on safety, below standard pay, horrible working conditions, no support from office, almost no actual expertise among 'experts' in the company. Very few individuals are the exception to this norm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a management training class, or read a book, or look on wikipedia what a manager is supposed to do. I'm sure youtube has some nice instructional videos on how to be an effective manager.

    I worked at Weatherford Laboratories as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    -Lab techs and non-management are generally down-to-Earth and easy to work with
    -Limited opportunities to learn about the oil industry as a whole
    -Management was laid back and do not try to micromanage unnecessarily
    -Lots of mobility within the company
    -Good springboard to other companies

    Cons

    -Lots of mobility within the company (high turnover)
    -Disturbing amount of management has never been to college and that's reflected in their work ethic and mindset
    -Favoritism runs rampant
    -Very below average compensation
    -Not a single person outside of management was interested in staying at Weatherford long term
    -Worker safety very weakly enforced. For example, certain employees smoked 5' away from barrels of flammable solvents and others even welded next to the barrels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-evaluate the lower management.
