Pros

Compared to similar companies in this field and in this area Nabors is close to the top. Working conditions are adequate. Uniforms and some safety equipment is provided. Laundering of uniforms is provided. Supervisor is considerate of time off if needed. Fellow workers are supportive and fun to work with. Pay is good if there is enough work. Direct supervisors are fair and supportive most of the time.

Cons

Has good safety procedures, but not followed by management and employees are not well trained to deal with hazardous conditions. Safety equipment is not available to employees working in H2S gas. Upper management is VERY POOR and not very knowledgeable. Upper management often makes poor choices. Excessive paperwork (often unnecessary paperwork required). Always coming up with more and more procedures that are not always beneficial.

Advice to Management

It is crucial that safety equipment is made readily available to drivers and managers who constantly are in danger of coming upon deadly gases (which is every work-site) and other dangerous working conditions. Eliminate paperwork that is duplicate and unnecessary. Paperwork should be efficient and concise - not redundant.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Large company so not real worried about the floundering economy. We have a vast variety of products that some subs manufacture, but the majority of the revenue is generated by drilling.

    Cons

    Work life balance is non exsistant and the insurance does not cover preventative care. Time off is allowed, but only because the state makes them. Of course it could be fro the subsidiary I personally work for, can't speak for the others.

    Advice to Management

    When you say you are going to do something , do it and document it.

    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.
