Has anyone noticed the mistake they made At Nisku in the past few months. It is not a safe place to work. On top of that management is a trying to invoke fear and has replaced those that were trying to improve the situation. Quality continues to be a... —  read more 

Incoming Recession??

Been 3 years since they gave us a raise. Guess with the potential recession that looks like we’re going to fall in to will make 4 years. Expect actual lay off posts to start hitting soon versus the current posting about the guy with the scooter —  read more

No one has regretted leaving

I have yet to hear that someone has regretted leaving poorly managed NOV. Do you know anyone who has? Even those who left and accepted a slightly lower pay have meanwhile been promoted and are now doing much better than they did here.

Shrimp Boil?

Any word on the shrimp boil for this year's OTC? I've heard from a great gossip source (CGO) that the company has scratched several events including no booth at OTC. Well, I guess it makes sense, these guys have not turned a profit in eight years, so... —  read more 

Gradual reduction of perks

I haven't been here that long, so I don't know. Can anyone make a retrospective of how the benefits have diminished here over the years. Someone stated that overtime, bonuses, double time, 401k matches, are now much different than before.
