    I have been working at Weatherford full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits with competitive pay. International company with a multitude of locations. Concept of safety being most important is great. Co-workers are amazing.

    Cons

    Poor communication. Employees who suggest ways to improve are told it's not their place. Antiquated software. Kudos and Atta Boys are non-existent. Still archiving paper files in boxes. Promoting from within is a joke. Management is all about production numbers with little (if any) concern for employees or their safety. Management favors the needs of male employees over female employees. Employees who suffer injuries at work are harassed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Negative reinforcement has been proven to not work. Happy employees will ALWAYS be more productive than those who are unhappy. Employees who are constantly berated and beaten down will do bare minimum and are careless. Happy employees pay attention and care about their jobs. If you want your production numbers to increase, try treating your employees like they are important and matter.

    Update the software employees use to perform their jobs. AS400 has been old technology for decades. It is slow and costly to maintain. Every other oil company uses SAP, which is user friendly and efficient. It is everything that JDE is not. JDE - the base program for Weatherford operations was developed in 1990's and looks like it. Weatherford continues to fall behind the competition and will never be able to catch up and then keep up unless it makes a decision to enter the 21st Century and then punch on to 2014.
