    I worked at Nabors Industries full-time

    Pros

    Learned a lot of things NOT to do. Met some good people but almost all of them are gone now.

    Cons

    Corporate strategy never right - completely demoralizing. Blamed it all on rank and file - toxic work environment. Horrible back office support, particularly IT.

    I worked at Nabors Industries full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good people, decent office, interesting work, good benefits

    Cons

    Poor leadership from the top down. Lots of hiring layoff cycles. Very poor financial planning. CEO has zero qualifications to be the CEO of a drilling company. Was a lawyer before he came to Nabors. Management seems to accept the poor performance of R&D group. Continually sinking money into failed projects and then management decides to perform acquisition of another company because the product created was inferior. This is a cycle that has occurred many times at Nabors. The company hasn't become profitable as of 2019 while competitors are. Also pay is not comparable to other companies in sectors for engineers.

    I have been working at Nabors Industries full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay is decent. There are pockets of good people with good ideas

    Cons

    Top down management style has created an environment that stifles initiative and closes people to sharing information. Since people are afraid to speak out, the right information doesn't get up to management, and management makes decision without understanding the facts.

    I worked at Nabors Industries full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    There are some very good people employed there. They have insurance and paid vacations and a 401k plan. Parking is adequate and guarded.

    Cons

    I would say management is the biggest problem. There is way to much of it. Interdepartmental squabbling and ego's. They micro manage employees' and don't really have a clue on what it takes to do your job. Especially with the market being down the managers don't have much to do except interfere with employees and make life difficult.

    I worked at Nabors Industries

    Pros

    Nabors Offshore Corporate Services is a family oriented company. They have good people to work for. Safety is our goal.

    Cons

    The pay could have been better. They were way behind on their performance evaluations and awarding raises until a law suit was placed on Nabors. Then things finally got better.

    Pros

    some really good people that want to succeed

    Management is dysfunctional at best. No clear direction, priorities change by the minute and there is very little agreement on direction from the different department heads.
