    I worked at Weatherford Laboratories full-time

    Pros

    Everything you learn there. People and what you do.

    Have none to write though. Hard place to start.

    I have been working at Weatherford Laboratories full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Scheduling flexibility, salary isn’t great but isn’t bad in the labs. We get our own office. Weekends off for the most part.

    Cons

    Lots! Low morale overall, poor management, lack of raises going on 5 years now, the richer get richer and the poorer get poorer bc those higher ups, if they don’t get raises, will get retention stocks or bonuses. Too many direct managers telling me what to do in different directions. Lazy managers = lazy employees = making those hard workers work harder!

    Advice to Management

    Read all the cons!

    There's no direction or willingness to mold and develop employees. It is very much a "good 'ol boy" mentality which works out for some people. The training is sub-par.
