Good environment

It was a good experience overall. Would definitely recommend. The conditions are a bit harsh due to working in the oil field under the hot sun but overall a good experience

Good opportunity to develop my skills and talent

It was a very nice place to work, a normal day would involve answering emails, meet with the line manager for any special tasks or priorities for the day, assist the team, meet with function to resolve any requirements or issues. Stop work on closure of business day. Good benefits for staff. Only issue was Weatherford had declared chapter 11, hence I need to secure my end of service, in case they declared the next level of bankruptcy.

Pros

Good place to work

Cons

Financial stability

Lack of management

The working conditions were pleasant, unfortunately from a Management point of view it was catastrophic just after being replaced by an acting Manager. The work was poorly supervised, despite having intervened on quite a few black spots in the performance of the reservoir study. However, it was a bad experience spent in Dubai on petroleum consulting Departement as Senior Region Geo-Modeler Petroleum Consulting - MENA. Finally, the acting Manager had not any experience in carrying out the Field. Development Plan (FDP).

Pros

Pleasant offices, good work team and attractive salary

Cons

Lack of management, bad leadership, no follow-up in planning, lack of expert support

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.

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.
