    I worked at Nabors Industries full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of work to stay busy, utilized most basic and some advanced office skills, good communication from upper management and home office, pleasant work environment. Challenging and rewarding to complete all tasks assigned and/or necessary to achieve desired results within acceptable time lines. Job safety is very important to the company. Worked within state and federal DOT guidelines. Worked at various office locations based on company needs, with other administrative assistants who were friendly, courteous and welcomed additional help.

    Cons

    Low starting waged based on the many years of office management experience I possess, small annual raises- depending on the annual self evaluation and bottom line of the company.

    Advice to Management

    When area managers recognize that they have in their employ a highly efficient, goal oriented office manager with a positive attitude and the willingness to commute to other field offices to support and assist other administrative assistants based on company needs, it should be expected that the company would reward that asset of a team leader with a more respectable wage.

    I worked at Nabors Industries (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. Some training was available.

    Cons

    Management shook things up, as far as individuals' responsibilities. One week, my responsibilities would be "this", the next week, my responsibilities would be "that".

    Advice to Management

    Adhere to employees responsibilities, as set forth in the employee manual.

    Manage your personell and stay up on your paper work. There is lots of paper work that Nabors requires.

    Pros

    I loved what I was doing. Working in an office, invoicing and payroll, is definitely my area of expertise.

    Cons

    When I was hired, the office was so behind on invoicing that no one could take the time to train me correctly on their computer system, so I had to sink or swim. When you're brand new, that's tough to be thrown into the mix just like that, but eventually I trained myself and learned.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure each office personnel has the adequate amount of training to learn your system. Even a couple of days of training would make a huge difference.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Oilfield has slowed down a lot but they let you work even when there is no work. Only 40 hrs guaranteed but they are doing there best.

    Cons

    None really seems like a loyal company going through a slow period

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing what you are doing. I know a lot of guys are not happy about hours but if business is slow business is slow.
