    I worked at Nabors Industries full-time

    Pros

    Compensation is competitive because no one wants to work here

    Cons

    I've never seen such poor management in my life. They do nothing to help you - because they are completely incompetent. You may get to "grow your career" every few years or so until they feel you might start looking to get out. If you're really wanting to work here, and especially in this department, please run the opposite direction

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to you know...."manage" - there was only one middle manager that was worth it in the Houston PSC office. The rest.....need a lot of restructuring.

    Pros

    Large company that seems to keep work at all times and has some of the nicest equipment in the industry.

    Cons

    They split your work week, and make all jump through hoops to satisfy their company standard all the while never taking in feedback generated from its employees

    Fix this. Your losing top quality employees to other companies just so stock holders will show larger profits. This particular scale doesn't balance out for long
