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

    Pros

    Top notch everything; new trucks, nice equipment, expense account, etc
    Laid back work environment
    You don't have to go to the shop if you are not on a job

    Cons

    Poor management as far as you can see up the chain
    Good ol boy system in place and if you aren't kissing butt then you aren't in the click
    Lots of unknowledgeable field techs
    Manager has never run a packer (thinks rigs have elevators so you don't have to use stairs)
    Manager will work you into the ground to get his commission check up

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to do the field hands job
    Don't focus on commission checks every month
    Get Field Techs that can do their jobs not just get by

    I worked at Weatherford full-time

    Pros

    Worked at this company for several years and developed wonderful friendships with people that are irreplaceable to this day. I gained an enormous amount of experience that I will take with me everywhere and am grateful to have been a part of this company.

    Cons

    Management needs alot of work, I believe they should have to take courses on how to deal with people. I believe most of them forgot what it was like to be human with a heart or conscious... What it what was like to actually labor for your check.

    Advice to Management

    Try and remember what its like to be a worker dealing with massive workload expectations and severe weather changes. Remember that your employees are a direct reflection of your leadership skills and inspire them to be better rather than treating them as replacement parts.
