Weatherford is having a good working atmosphere. I learned how to improve soft skills and work on interpersonal skills. The hardest part of the job was to meet deadlines. The overall culture is good.

Official response from Weatherford

January 19, 2021
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. It’s great to hear that you enjoyed the work environment and improved valuable skills while working at Weatherford. We have great people, so it is important to us that we provide our employees with organizational opportunities through mentoring, as well as challenging and enriching career paths. While we may operate all over the world, we are one team, one family, One Weatherford.

Productive and fun workplace with other people. Bad malabari management and biased leaders without good qualification and manners.

If you are malabari then better you apply in weatherford, the malabari management are biased and some people of the management are not qualified for the position but still they give them the office job because they are malabari. Malabari Machinist then after a year they became a manufacturing engineer or planning engineer. Malabari technician then after a month or a year they became planning or manufacturing engineer also. They never check your background even you have a good qualification and education. As long as you are malabari you have future in weatherford.

Bad management.

Overall the management is bad, they won’t let you succeed and won’t let you get what you want legally. For example being an engineer working as a technician, they won’t let you switch department. I will share my experience, i this worked in weathyabu dhabi for 1.5 years, i got job offer from engineering department but my manager didn’t give me release letter which ruined my career at weatherford and I resigned.

Pros

No free lunch or anything.

Cons

Healthcare, insurance, convenience, transportation.

Fun Workplace

The department where I am working for is very flexible and understands the need of the employees. They provide trainings to be competent to the job. They give opportunities to everyone. It is great working Weatherford.

Technologically ahead

Technologically ahead company but frequent changes in organisation leaves no safety for your job position. Salary is comparatively better, but don't expect any further growth atleast in my feild of engineering.
