    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.

    Pros

    Co-workers are a joy to work with.

    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.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, nice, competent co-workers.

    Cons

    There wasn't anywhere to go up in the company. They are very unwilling to discuss title or pay changes although they are happy to have you work well outside of your title/responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Compensate employees appropriately.

    I have been working at Weatherford Laboratories (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really the only pro with this company is that the work load is light.

    Cons

    Poor salary. Poor management. People without degrees are given promotions, while people with degrees are stuck in the same position for years. Managers get disgruntled and try to sabotage you if you apply for another position within the company. No raises or bonuses. Good employees are punished for good work by being asked to take over the bad employees work load as well as their own.

    Advice to Management

    When a supervisor can't keep good, qualified employees for any extended period of time, it time to start looking into the supervisor's abilities and consider letting them go versus promoting them and giving them more responsibilities.

    I have been working at Weatherford Laboratories full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I would say stability, job security, pension, some overtime and benefits

    Cons

    No career development, seen people doing the same job for years, if any vacancy comes up no chance to fill it internally
    Basic Pay
    No advancement,

    Advice to Management

    I think over all lots of management staff comparing to the number of employee, secondly they should give more chance to internal employee the opportunities to advance and develop in their career
