    I worked at Weatherford Laboratories full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are a few good apples within the building, especially among the lower level technicians and temporary staff. Low wages for industry averages, but benefits were standard (assuming full-time employment)

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs and resignations fostered anxiety and uncertainty among the remaining employees. Management keen on shielding its reputation by shifting performance shortcomings onto lower level staff and temp workers. An understaffed skeleton crew made conditions strenuous. Mismanagement of available staff skill sets, communication and inner-departmental collaboration lead to errors and poor quality work.

    I have been working at Weatherford Laboratories full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Scheduling flexibility, salary isn’t great but isn’t bad in the labs. We get our own office. Weekends off for the most part.

    Cons

    Lots! Low morale overall, poor management, lack of raises going on 5 years now, the richer get richer and the poorer get poorer bc those higher ups, if they don’t get raises, will get retention stocks or bonuses. Too many direct managers telling me what to do in different directions. Lazy managers = lazy employees = making those hard workers work harder!
