    I have been working at Nabors Industries full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Limited physical labor
    When there is down time on the rig you have little to do if anything
    The people you work with

    Cons

    Work/Life balance skewed heavily to work
    No set schedule so no rotation like all the other positions have (14 on / 14 off or 28 on /14 off)

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough people so that you can get a rotation going for all the units.

    I worked at Nabors Industries full-time

    Pros

    Friendly and good group of employees worked with.

    Cons

    HR needs to listen and hear their employees when they ask for assistance. Old Management style does not match One Nabors Vision.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house with non-progressive, bad attitude HR. All employees matter! Company representation matters!

    Pros

    They have good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Nepotism was a problem when I was there. Sometimes, bad managers were protected by another employee/manager.

    Pros

    Great Pay, Cool people all around that place. CEO has the company moving in the right direction.

    Cons

    Some legacy management still hasn't bought into the CEO's new vision.

    Advice to Management

    Replace those that won't buy into the new One Nabors vision.

    Look out more for employees.

    I worked at Nabors Industries full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You will get a ton of experience with Oracle, .NET, and SQL, plus learn all the business processes, because you'll be doing everyone else's work. Your manager (who will almost certainly be from India) will kindly relieve you of the burden of receiving any credit for your accomplishments.

    Cons

    So many! HB1 applicants who can't understand anything or perform the basic functions of the job they were hired to do, constant undertones of politics/backstabbing, developers and analysts clawing over each other trying to gain favor with management, flagrant nepotism, unethical hiring practices, unrealistic expectations, lack of vision, lack of communication, lack of common sense. I could go on all day. This place is like working in a real-life Dilbert comic! Realized my mistake on day 1 and found another job ASAP.

    Advice to Management

    Making the building look nice, rather than fixing the problems with the company really is the hallmark of where your priorities lie: status-symbols are more important than people.

    In the safety department it seems as if there is a lack of room for advancement.
