    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Awesome place to work (when things are going good)

    Cons

    A lot of layoffs during the downturn. Seems to happen every 4-5 years. Not company specific but that's no consolation.

    Advice to Management

    Create an environment that encourages employees to grow within the company.

    Pressurised environment due to fiscal position of the company and the cyclic nature of the industry.

    Develop your talent base more formally (structured) & promote from within based on merit.
    Keep senior management in place for longer to allow time for a direction and vision to be implemented.

    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.
