    I worked at Weatherford full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Because the company is poorly run from top to bottom, there is a lot of leniency and flexibility. You can negotiate for a lot of perks and slip by with a lot of extras because the rules throughout the company are so poorly managed.

    Cons

    I was always concerned Weatherford was going to collapse at any day.

    Advice to Management

    Understand what is going on in every division and limit the number of days people are forced to work.

    Pros

    New management is making the required changes in culture and attitude to help take Weatherford to the next level in its service and quality functions.

    Cons

    In my opinion the company is becoming much more of a "machine", it makes it a colder place to work and impacts employee loyalty.

    Advice to Management

    If management can find a way to keep improving the structure of the organization without compromising the previously inclusive feel to belonging to the company they will retain the employees they need and the company will excel.

    Get rid of the lousy executives who have run the company into the ground, and let some Weatherford people rise up.
