    I have been working at Nabors Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Access to management. One of my colleague mentioned about this site and the comments. I am shocked to see the comments. I have been here in the Nabors IT for 10 years and seen many changes. Most of them are very positive and more than anything, I was given an opportunity to grow within IT. Went from helpdesk person to a Sr. Analyst role. At first I wasn't happy for not having the opportunity that I wanted (to become a programmer), but with CIO's help and his open door, he was able to help me make the right decision for my future. I was not only able to grow within company, but I am also happy with what I do. I wouldn't have been happy being a programmer, since I like to interact with users a lot.

    Cons

    Benefits are improving, but still needs improvement. Salary helps compensate some of the benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to share the vision and expedite the One Nabors goal.

    I have been working at Nabors Industries full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salary, work-life balance, team environment. Nabors is on the right track again, under the guidance of the new CEO. Changing to become a more market driven progressive company. Great people and a real team feel. Pretty surprised by the very negative reviews on the site. I would say depending on your outlook, this company would be a 3 star to 5 star company. The 1 star and 2 star reviews are pretty crazy.

    Cons

    Still have challenges of making that change to a newer progressive company. Some entrenched management, still not willing to change. With that being said, change is happening just not as quickly as one might hope. Benefits are average at best.

    Advice to Management

    Make the hard decision and let a few laggards go and continue to move forward with your One Nabors vision.
