•NOV announced another round of layoffs. •It will likely have to make deep cost cuts to maintain its investment grade credit rating. •That could be difficult to do if the economy declines. •Sell NOV.

Rumors are flying about brandt working through the Christmas holiday. Thanks for the extra money guys really appreciate it! Not get y’alls stuff together. At its busiest Brandt never worked those days. Now we’re slow and you pull this sh-t
Why does getting an individual raise for good performance or promotion immediately make you exempt from any company-wide raise in the same calendar year? another BS rule in this company?
No raises, OT’s been cut to nothing and we have run out of work here the south Sheldon location. Meanwhile, no salespeople have been fired. They just fire the hard working employees who. Actually want to be here and do a good job. All of the... — read more
