usually start the day at 5am, tried accomplishing tasks without having to run my head into the concrete walls around my work area ! i learned never to trust the natives to get almost anything done..... and.... when you did find a competent native,the other native would do anything to sabotage his/or her work workplace culture was such that i was able to learn arabic on my coffee breaks with the local staff most enjoyable part of the job was the good friends i made with the local people we interacted with

Working at Weatherford was really fun. I was in a lot of pressure in delivering results. But to work under pressure was challenging & tiring, I have learned how to manage my time for my work & family.

I learnt a lot at Weatherford but the work culture needs some serious improvement. Management doesn't get too involved in decision making processes and leave all responsibilities in mid level managers
Pros
Good salaries
Cons
no work/life balance

work as an engineer was great. the problem back then was management and weatherford was acquiring to many companies and they started having cash problems from the rapid expansion and low sales vs the oil price drop. the country manager was great when joined and i still try to stay in touch with him, probably the best boss i had. but then he left and all he ll broke loose. the salaries are average for that field but not bad and the work load wasnt that much back then. I would recommenced working there
Pros
culture

One of the competitive oilfield companies in the market. On the favorable side, you will be exposed to hierarchy of Management, deal with international suppliers, and on a good year of performance expect a months of total salary as bonus. On the downside, between the years of 2004-2008, the finance and sales divisions were mostly of paskitani decent. The financial controller , a Pakistani, hired his relatives and his contacts, and occupied management roles and positions. Most of them could not even speak English. I guess things have changed now.
Pros
Good work Exposure
Cons
Pakistani Management in Dubai, Urdu is the spoken Language

My day at work was extremely busy in compiling technical and commercial proposals, pre-qualifications, pre&post tender clarifications etc. for Drilling services product line, Compiling multiple product lines tenders is the most important part of tender which I learned. Company is professionally managed. Work place culture is very sporting. There were holidays and I was asked to submit 3 tenders to customers urgently which I did successfully, This part was the hardest Coordinating with customers and internal staff is the most enjoyable part of the job. Also added to it it document control job,
Pros
Some of the perks offered to me
Cons
Will discuss personally

regular days are typical work days without any further changes. every day is a learning day, specially on work you never know what new is coming. management plays an important roles in employees work and their thoughput work place culture should be clam but not so silence, rather sometimes a crack of joke or a talk can levitate work progress. job is job, hardest and easiest parts are all part of it and flow with ease once done successfully, most enjoyable part when u got less work and pretend to go on with work load for a day!

Weatherford was a great company where there were many challenges as its strategy was based on growth by acquisitions. Many acquisitions needed very much flexibility to changes and very active business develpment for the share holders to see their return the investment! Much fun. However, there was a change in senior management where they changed the whole culture and instead of leading by objectives, it became so subjective and separate groups instead of one team. Differentiation based on race and nationality not on productivity lead to leaving the company after 13years and the company started to fell down to a very bad situation that it is currently at. Feeling sorry for such a great organization to fell apart.
Pros
Leading by objectives, working as a team
Cons
Stressful, growth by acquisition challenges
