    Pros

    Great benefits, good 401k matching, able to use vacation when requested

    Cons

    They hire people to be supervisors that have never even worked in the industry before, they have no idea what's going on on the floor. They promise rewards that they don't deliver. If you are written up you can plan on being suspended no matter what the offense, even though you are supposed to get a verbal warning, then writin warning, then suspension.


  2. "Always treated fairly"

    Pros

    As the innovative leader in the development of equipment used for oil exploration, NOV promotes diversity in the workplace and has created fair and equitable conditions where hard-work and competence are rewarded. It is a good place to work.

    Cons

    There is a lack of 'common-sense' project management. I believe this is because NOV is an acquisition-based company that has yet to bring all these disparate groups together under one logical unit. This is a common challenge though, for many companies that grow through mergers and acquisitions. NOV has the right people in senior positions to solve this issue.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up.
