    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.

    Pros

    Good people, collaborative work environment, good salaries.

    Slow-moving beast! Decisions are limited by corporate control, and take forever to get resolved.

    Advice to Management

    Let your managers run the business - that is why you hired them in the first place.

    Pros

    Nabors is company that has human development at heart, career enhancement company, jobs satisfaction potentials,research and development provision for dedicated staff and lastly job on training programs.

    Cons

    The company profile did not give room for diversification, it is only oil centered either drilling or work- over productions.

    Advice to Management

    The entire management need overhaul, they are rigid the way and manner of administration, no provision for growth, career development especially new graduates with different scope of studies to contribute their quota in the development of the already existing and formidable company.Importantly there is need for classification departments strictly for development and career paths

    Pros

    Paycheck showed up in bank.

    Cons

    Current CEO Petrello is the equivalent of Sepp Blatter of FIFA in that he uses the company as a personal cash machine at the expense of shareholders. Treasury group is abusive. Do not go.

    Advice to Management

    Active shareholders need to overhaul the company. If you believe in hell, Gene Isenberg is definitely burning there.

    Pros

    Above median pay for industry.

    Too many chiefs, safety department seems to be against the workers rather than with them, for some reason one of few industry companies which does not permit facial hair (except mustache), nepotism runs rampant
