    Pros

    pay was great and management was productive and provided great constructive criticism. I felt like sometimes safety was put on a back burner.

    Cons

    the industry is very up and down so during the down period it seemed like the people who were laid off were based on a popularity contest in some cases.

    I have been working at Weatherford Laboratories full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The place i am working now is a really good place to start your carrer. You will be given some degree of freedom to choose or at least affect the activities you will be doing for the following weeks, months and etc. Since it is a small company there is less bureaucracy, and family like staff yet it is an international company. Salary paid without delay. Great place to accumulate experience.

    Cons

    It is 5/2 in Aktau. It is a con for me. I would prefer 14/14 or 28/28. No payment for over time. No other cons.


  10. "Great place to work, but bad compensations"
