    I worked at Weatherford full-time for 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
