Best company I worked I the Middle East,ultimate employee rights in some issues like safety,harrasment etc,competitive salary and facilities in the region.excellent manufacturing engineers, planners, CAM programming team, Qc policy,procedures outstanding.in my point of view mid management team damaging the Weatherford legacy by implementing cheap so called savings and achievements.even though this cons is there but the company is superb.
Competitive salary in the region, excellent safety standards and rights
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.
No free lunch or anything.
Healthcare, insurance, convenience, transportation.

Enjoyed my tenure working with Weatherford. Very co-operative and friendly mangement and staff of various cultures. No pressure from management as long as you complete the given tasks on a timely basis
Flexible working hours
Weatherford was a struggling company during my tenor. The division I worked for lacked leadership and had no clear plan forward. This created an environment uncertainty for the team, especially since the president of our division was very reactionary and had a shoot from the hip type of management style.
Lack of job security
A good company to work for, appreciate the knowledge and skills. Need to focus on management improvements, system optimization. The company need to work on hiring process as well and apply more screening.
Current financial situation of Weatherford explains everything that is required to be known, hard to add anything too that. Upper management at the company have dragged it down.
peers are friendly
badly organised, paperwork workload horrendous
Friendly environment , timed certifications and training. Listening and approachable Compliance department. Few managers could believe what their favorites would say due to which sometimes office environment became unhappy and stressful. Worst part is job insecurity.
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
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.
Good work Exposure
