Just had an all-facility meeting, the Orange plant is closing up over the next seven months.
I hear that voluntary redundancy is on the cards again Let’s see who said they would go actually take it
Accept the new world. Toxicity is not bad. Bus throwing is cool. Segways are awesome. Let go money makers. Don’t accept the truth.
Seriously what do they even do over there anymore? Place has looked dead for months.

Any news on when we will get our 401K matching back? There does not seem to be much incentive to stay around here anymore. I wanted to retire from here but the way things have changed lately I feel I should move on. I have been here for 19 years and... — read more
What? No TURKEY Vouchers. We must be on hard times .. NOV have turned into BAH HUMBUG Scrooge
Heard they got a big contract from Russia. Supposed to be work for next 5 Years.
Does anyone have solid information on this and if so which departments
What a toxic place NOV is to work right now. Nothing to be positive about at all. Management have done a terrible job and they know it. And before someone says ‘you should be thankful you have a job’, don’t waste your time.
