Featured Review

Former Employee - MWD Field Engineer

I worked at Weatherford full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Being a field hand the people in the office treated use as an equal. Something I never experienced at any of the other oil field services companies I worked at.

Cons

The work life balance is hard to get around for most people.

Former Employee - Welder/Fabricator

I worked at National Oilwell Varco full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

chances to learn a lot

Cons

low pay for the position but it's ok
