I have been working at National Oilwell Varco full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Independent working involving minimal oversight if you know what you're doing to get the job done. Base pay is low, however it is offset by additional pays when going out on jobs, transit time, and per diem with great health/dental/vision benefits.

Cons

Workload changes constantly. Can have periods where you get paid doing nothing and other times when you'll be out day after day getting rigs up and running.

    I have been working at National Oilwell Varco full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They have excellent benefits. Business always seems good so long term employment is a plus.

    Cons

    At the Sugarland facility management is terrible. You have to be in the inner circle to advance or be bad at your job. People are viewed as expendable so there is a large turnover in employees. You hardly ever see people smile out there.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a change in management from the top all the way down to the shops. Old leaders with old ideas or ones who just don't care about the people. It's stagnant and needs new fresh leadership who cares about the people who actually make production happen. Without the shop employees this facility and any other are useless.
