    I worked at Nabors Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Feeling great about a job being accomplished, great pay to provide a successful future for family, benefits are great. The opportunity to work with different people and knowing them is always a pleasure

    Cons

    Personal changed because of who you know instead of work experience and ethics

    Advice to Management

    Get out to the field and know who your employees are, who works who doesn't, who will make achieve long term goals and keep contracts instead of who your friends are and keep losing contracts.

    I have been working at Nabors Industries full-time

    Pros

    good company to work for. It was better when Gene was CEO. They value input from employees and are trying to change the overall culture.

    Cons

    Tony is the new CEO. They are trying to go back to core business. Seemed like the company was more family oriented under Gene's leadership. Weak management.

    I worked at Nabors Industries full-time

    Pros

    Potential to be industry leader in market. Pockets of good leadership and departments. Challenging industry with opportunity to learn quickly.

    Cons

    Disingenuous leadership, elite mentality within management, view employee base as consumable asset. Poor benefits and pay except for the top management. No career path planning or interest on behalf of company leadership. At odds with investment community and stock holders regarding executive pay and board member performance/selection. Overall negative culture.

    Advice to Management

    Hold yourselve accountable to outside third party measurement and employee base on specific deliverables to drive culture to a more positive and productive environment. Tie this to 50% of your annual total pay opportunity.

    I have been working at Nabors Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Open door policy is a great way to meet and communicate with high-level managers - Instructor Led Training opportunities - Team rewards when working hard

    Cons

    - We don't receive much supervisor/manager feedback - High levels of harassment from coworkers - Some supervisors are ill placed - Not enough training on subject matter

    Advice to Management

    Ask for colleagues when promoting people, it feels like the wrong people are placed into supervisor positions

    Pros

    Great place to work. Oilfield has slowed down a lot but they let you work even when there is no work. Only 40 hrs guaranteed but they are doing there best.

    Cons

    None really seems like a loyal company going through a slow period

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you are doing. I know a lot of guys are not happy about hours but if business is slow business is slow.

    Great pay and benefits nice people within the company to work with

    Cons

    Unpredictable work schedule you have co workers who act like they know how to do something but don't.

    Advice to Management

    Try being loyal to the ones that actually bust there behinds to get work done.

    I worked at Nabors Industries full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some great employees, but not appreciated for their hard work!!!! If your lazy, you may love it...work is slow and I spent most my days on the internet doing non work related things...and they don't enforce being on time for work...many employees a use the lunch hour...making it a two lunch break and no one says a thing...it's an easy paycheck

    Cons

    Many cons...low pay...no room for advancement unless you kiss up to upper mgmt....low employee morale...upper mgmt. is secretive and doesn't keep employees informed of organizational changes to the last minute...not much work to do and you can forget about learning more about the industry, they don't cross train much...and 401k was matched, now taken away...benefits are expensive for a family...don't waste your time at this dead end job!!

    Advice to Management

    Change your upper mgmt. Pertrillo has ruined this place...your losing good people and rewarding those that suck up and lazy!!!
