    I worked at Weatherford full-time (More than 8 years)

    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.

    Pros

    They invest in your future and have great training programs. When they say safety always they mean it also lots of availability to move around within the company.

    Cons

    It is the oil field so expect the ups and downs. Upper managment at corporate level
    Forgets to pay venders and constantly dealing with credit holds.

    Advice to Management

    More open communication.
