      I worked at Nabors Industries full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Steady pay check. The roof quit leaking.

      Cons

      Management is clueless. The top dogs running Canrig are driving it in the dirt. The safety culture is gone there is no career path and on one who know how to run the place. Top management hates the QC group there is no true leadership within the group. Date management is a joke and dictated by when the revenue is needed and not when the product is ready. Too many prototype equipment that is sold before it is proven. Then...

      Advice to Management

      Start all over. Shut it down and clean house then start from the ground up.

        I worked at Nabors Industries full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        Location was important and only reason I considered this company. Bad decision should have kept driving over an hour at my old job.

        Cons

        Leadership at both Nabors and Canrig need to be replace with those who know how to lead and inspire a workforce. Poor decision making by leaders is a direct reflection on stock price being <3 Bucks. Company performance and employee moral are both so poor I am completely surprised they can recruit any talent to be a successful company. Clear out both leadership teams and start a new. No way the culture or moral...
