    "A place where the loudest voice prevails"

    Pros

    If you want a job where you can just do what is required and nothing more, this is the company you need to go to which is not necessarily a bad thing depending on what you want out of life. The file and rank employees are very nice and helpful along with most of the middle management. No one really rocks the boat since everyone is pretty much satisfied with where they are and are just waiting for retirement or a better job opportunity to come along. Would definitely recommend to someone who is a few short years from retirement and does not want much change.

    Cons

    Middle management is a mix of characters. Before I started working there people warned me that the voice of reason doesn't usually prevail and typically it is more of who throws the biggest fit that gets their way, regardless of metrics trying to be reached. If you enjoy getting into screaming matches to get your point across, then this is the place for you. For those that would rather do their work and try to improve processes or increase their technical capabilities, look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    From what I understand, the culture of screaming to get others to get behind your idea comes from the top. It isn't so much the fighting for your ideas to come across that I have a problem with but that some in the organization will not stop trying to get their ideas across even after they realize they are in the wrong. Management has a right to run their organization as they see fit, this review is more to warn others looking into opportunities at Nabors of what to expect.
