    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.
