Lots opportunities for advancement, used to have good job security, not anymore
HSE Advisor (Former Employee) – Perth WA – 10 July 2016
Weatherford is a company with exciting opportunities for career advancement if you are hard working and ambitious enough, will be perfect for graduates or new comers to oil and gas industry. I appreciate all these opportunities Weatherford had offered me , through which I became a better professional at what I do year after year.
The pay for my position is decent.
Not too much about work/life balance to speak of, long hours and answering phone calls all the time even during holidays is just commonplace for most operations- related positions and some supporting functions.
I've been working with Weatherford for more than 5 years and the most enjoy part was that I made friends with some of the like-minded people.
The company used to be like a slow car providing reasonable job security to employees. Not the same case since 3 or 4 years ago. Time is tough now and the company, along with other similar companies is struggling to survive , my position was made redundant as a result of cost reduction.
Best luck to Weatherford.
Decent pay; internal job opportunities
inconstancy of management, long working hours
