    Negative Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Weatherford Laboratories full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are a few good apples within the building, especially among the lower level technicians and temporary staff. Low wages for industry averages, but benefits were standard (assuming full-time employment)

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs and resignations fostered anxiety and uncertainty among the remaining employees. Management keen on shielding its reputation by shifting performance shortcomings onto lower level staff and temp workers. An understaffed skeleton crew made conditions strenuous. Mismanagement of available staff skill sets, communication and inner-departmental collaboration lead to errors and poor quality work.
