    I worked at Worldwide Oilfield Machine full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked with a lot of great people and I loved my customers.

    Cons

    You have to be related to someone to get paid. They are the lowest paying oil company. You are also not appreciated for all the hard work you do. Some people sleep their way to the top.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees anonymously review their managers. The employees do all the work while the mangers take credit. Mangers also come in late, take long lunches, and leave early as they do not have to clock in / out.

    I have been working at Worldwide Oilfield Machine full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots to learn, really good health insurance and 401k options. The people you work with are very nice and a family environment.

    Cons

    Very poorly managed from the top, very much like a dysfunctional family. Their quality of work is not up to industry standard at all. They have persistent quality control issues, engineering can not decide what to do about things or they just put it off on someone else. Trying to get answers from any department quickly is pretty much impossible. The people that do their job correctly and with common sense get criticized and made to look a fool. No bonus opportunities, they are several quarters late on paying commissions, base pay is very low.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in your employees and you will reap the benefits.

    I worked at Worldwide Oilfield Machine full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There isn't anything positive about this company

    Cons

    This is a highly mismanaged company. If you are good at what you do, you will be worked to the ground and never be fairly compensated for it or they say they will only to go back on their word. There are no structures in place people don't know the jobs they are hired to do leaving the people that actually have common sense doing all the work. People try to blame other people when things go wrong on the job and email everyone in higher power in the company in on the emails instead of handling things appropriately. Human Resources is non existent as it is a family owned company and they are the ones calling the shots and making all the big decisions. The owner doesn't live there he lived in India and travels to Houston sometimes.

    Pros

    I liked my job very much. It is very unique position of drafting choke manifolds, standpipe manifolds, cement manifolds, surface safety valves, crossovers, spools etc. and submitting the design packages for third party certification like DNV, ABS, Lloyds & B.V. There was lot of interaction with third parties.
    Worked with a very minimal supervision.

    Cons

    The benefits were poor, no sick leave, life insurance very low.

    Advice to Management

    None
