    I have been working at Nabors Industries full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Salary, work-life balance, team environment. Nabors is on the right track again, under the guidance of the new CEO. Changing to become a more market driven progressive company. Great people and a real team feel. Pretty surprised by the very negative reviews on the site. I would say depending on your outlook, this company would be a 3 star to 5 star company. The 1 star and 2 star reviews are pretty crazy.

    Cons

    Still have challenges of making that change to a newer progressive company. Some entrenched management, still not willing to change. With that being said, change is happening just not as quickly as one might hope. Benefits are average at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make the hard decision and let a few laggards go and continue to move forward with your One Nabors vision.

    I have been working at Nabors Industries full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Access to management. One of my colleague mentioned about this site and the comments. I am shocked to see the comments. I have been here in the Nabors IT for 10 years and seen many changes. Most of them are very positive and more than anything, I was given an opportunity to grow within IT. Went from helpdesk person to a Sr. Analyst role. At first I wasn't happy for not having the opportunity that I wanted (to become a programmer), but with CIO's help and his open door, he was able to help me make the right decision for my future. I was not only able to grow within company, but I am also happy with what I do. I wouldn't have been happy being a programmer, since I like to interact with users a lot.

    Cons

    Benefits are improving, but still needs improvement. Salary helps compensate some of the benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to share the vision and expedite the One Nabors goal.

    I have been working at Nabors Industries

    Pros

    Very good safety culture. Clear understanding of company values during onboarding. The work is challenging and fast paced, but the team is great to work for and make you feel involved. You feel like part of a family there and they are great at recognizing achievments. Senior Management was friendly, involved and took time to meet everyone and remember your name.

    Cons

    Not many opportunities to advance. Compensation was nothing special

    I worked at Nabors Industries

    Pros

    It is a stable and established company. I really enjoyed the people that I worked with. I got a lot of experience and learned lots of new things. Also, I got nice year end bonuses.

    Cons

    I thought that the cost of the benifits we too exspensive for the size of the company. The medical insurance was not worth the bother. The do not promote from within within the same department. May too much office politics!! Tution reimbursement is also nice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You really should survey the employees on benifits and get better insurance. You should promote from within instead of hiring outsiders. Employees work hard for you. They should not have to work for Nabors and have to move on to another company for advancement. You lose good employees that way.
