No opinion of CEO

I worked at Weatherford Laboratories as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

-Lab techs and non-management are generally down-to-Earth and easy to work with
-Limited opportunities to learn about the oil industry as a whole
-Management was laid back and do not try to micromanage unnecessarily
-Lots of mobility within the company
-Good springboard to other companies

Cons

-Lots of mobility within the company (high turnover)
-Disturbing amount of management has never been to college and that's reflected in their work ethic and mindset
-Favoritism runs rampant
-Very below average compensation
-Not a single person outside of management was interested in staying at Weatherford long term
-Worker safety very weakly enforced. For example, certain employees smoked 5' away from barrels of flammable solvents and others even welded next to the barrels.

Advice to Management

Re-evaluate the lower management.
