    I worked at Weatherford full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Weatherford's products and services are as good as any other successful service company. The employees executing these services are the best in industry except Wireline services. Very friendly people to work with.

    Cons

    Micromanagement is the norm in this company where managers lack future vision. Poor management in every department.. Job promotions politically influenced. Buddy system prevails. Very passive HR group with no voice or the ability to guide.

    Pros

    Travel coverage. Typical sales oriented, more sales more money your boss will be happier. Knowledge? No one cares.

    Cons

    Poor management. No smart people here, people are just copying and pasting the old stuffs and make them new again. Don't expect you will grow with the company. No encouragement for employees to further studying. Zero integrity.
