    I have been working at Weatherford part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The peopel were great, very international and friendly. The work was also very hands on. You have opportunity to travel

    Cons

    The work itself was not very mentally stimulating. It was a bit repetitve. It might not be like that everywhere, I was working in a lab. Also the company seemed to have poor managment higher up.

    Advice to Management

    The managment was not so great. They did not seem very organized.

    Pros

    gain knowledge of oil tools and organizational behaviour, enter into oil company as a door

    Cons

    no respect of employees in term of work, every one sacrifice family life as company do not provide family accommodation and re-numerous package to support family in UAE, forceful overtime, just one month vacation in year for those who work 12 hour in manufacturing shop at Abu Dhabi, no career development, injustice between salaries based on nationalities, in equities in work hours and facilities on the basis of ethnics.

    Advice to Management

    do not destroy personal life of employees, it there is 3/1 rotation in Oman for employees why not for Abu Dhabi machine shop guys, our children are unhappy with our job because we spend one month with them in a year, we are just slaves... being a employers take keen interest and review management policies specially in UAE and advice them, give proper trainings to employees and boost their career, there is no significant training since last 10 year for Machine shop employees. two vacations in a week are useless while live far away from family, reduce it and give us rotation. send us out of uae for trainings like other departments of Weatherford do, thanks
