    Pros

    Field hands and the people actually doing the work are great. WFT makes you appreciate your next job

    Cons

    Promotions are given to people with little to no experience in their product line. Sales and mgmt positions are basically given to people who have not performed well on the technical side of things. Pay is low end if you actually produce anything. Overhead is immense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop buying productive companies and removing all value from them

    Pros

    The pay is only good when you are regular on the field. But then, that isn't often. You get to travel to different countries.

    Cons

    Top management seem not to have records of employee which means promotions are done on requests, good friends or nationality with top management. In a world where nothing is perfect, you get no protection or support from management when the client starts being angry and field staffs are often left to face the brunt of the client alone. The field staffs are always to blame for most negative things on the field when management has failed to give enough support to field staffs. Training is poorly organized and most of the time you have to literally beg for it. You are expected to perform magic when you don't have all your tools.
    Whenever you send mails to your boss especially when you are home and activites are low, your boss hardly responds to your mails. Top management have more trust in the client and what the client says than in their own employees. Switching departments is almost impossible, I wonder how the phrase "one weatherford" was coined.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should understand that those who work under them are employees like them and thus should be treated with respect. Without these people he/she wouldn't be in a job. Their communication skills should improve cause its been terrible. Give honour to whom honour is due and stop favoring your friends and nationals for promotions.
