    I worked at Nabors Industries full-time

    Pros

    The operations folks are regular oilfield people we've come up with. The pay is reasonable for whats out here. Not many differences in working from district to district

    Cons

    Anytime you have to deal with the IT group be prepared for frustration. They had/have a handful of people that actually cared about what we did in the field and even those people would be frustrated because they couldnt get projects pushed through. When I left it was ridiculous. Years ago the group was primarily american who would tell you they wished they would be allowed to go to the field and learn what we do. Now its Indians who've never been to the field but pretend to know what you're talking about.

    Advice to Management

    Purge that IT group from the top down two layers and stop importing workers. Make field experience mandatory for anyone in operations management. They should have been at least a rig manager before becoming a district manager. Ridiculous.

    IT Senior Project Manager Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Nabors Industries.

    Interview

    Interviewed with a Sr PM who was ok. He did most of the talking about himself and didn't really ask many questions. Then after he was finished he left the room and I heard him and another individual speaking loudly , as in a heated arguement, then an Indian woman came in and she introduced herself as the Sr Director. She said that she had to "straighten out"the guy I just intrviewed with because he was behind schedule on his projects. One scary place. I would not want to work there. They seemed very unprofessional. The indian woman seemed like she was not interested in conducting the interview. This was a waste of time.
    One thing the 1st guy mentioned was that they've been through 4 - IT Directors in the last 3 years. and that the Sr Director looks to blame everyone for her mistakes. Sounds like a snake pit. Very bad and uncomfortable experience.
