I worked for Nabors for over 7 yrs in three different business units.

Senior Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at Nabors Industries

ProsIt 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.

ConsI 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 Senior ManagementYou 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.
