Lets see the current sentiment towards NOV management. Vote up Alternatively Vote down.
Every good company avoids favoritism/nepotism as much as possible. There may have been a lot of favoritism before, but talented employees had the opportunity to grow their careers. Now those opportunities are reduced to a minimum because favoritism... — read more
In a move of profound and towering stupidity, feckless management has decided to mothball a perfectly suited and less expensive facility to consolidate personnel into a new, shiny, and more expensive location. The belief that all of us lesser beings... — read more
With the dollar to Euro/GBP at a low/high depending on your point of view, wouldn’t it make sense to shut all European manufacturing down and move it all back to the good old US of A ? That way we could rid ourselves of all the hassle of dealing... — read more
for Mexico look great guys! The I’m not only the President but also a client must be very proud of the International sales team and finally having rigs sold and built here in the good ol USA. Wait…what!?! OHHHH SNAAAAP those rigs are being built by... — read more
What's going on at the Frazier Rd location? Looks like there a lot of cars parked there and above average ones too.... must be paying well these days. :)
No more high hopes. Honestly, I was hoping that our leadership would finally start thinking of the company's future, but it is obvious that they only think of themselves. Is it possible for NOV to once again be the company where it was actually... — read more
Certainly there are better ways to run every company. Complainers who think that this company is not run well, should perhaps sometimes give their own idea as to how they think this place would be run better. I think it would be interesting to... — read more
A US recession will hit in Q3/Q4 then layoffs will start to kick in at US companies. The end is nigh hopefully.
The company thinks it can treat us however it wants and we'll just sit here and take it because "we should consider ourselves lucky to have a job." The only problem for them is that people are done taking their cr-p and are leaving in droves with few... — read more
What to expect this week from Les the Mess: Price improvements: maybe we can charge the customer for every email we have to respond to. Say, $2,500/ sentence. “Oh, you need some coating baby, that’ll be $5,000 for the quote itself.” “Then we add... — read more
How does this management team still stay in place? This is a joke. The whole lot needs to be replaced. What a joke!
Left 3 yrs ago and h couldn’t be happier. It will take about a year to put all the misery and hard feeling behind you, but it’s worth it. Forgive and move on.
NOV will report yet another losing quarter on 7/27. Going on 10 straight years of operating at a loss. How can this be?
Raises will kick in before the end of the quarter.
It still never ceases to amaze me how some manage to get positions that far exceed their competence. I wonder how these people manage to do the work for which they do not have enough knowledge, skills, abilities? It's no wonder that NOV is sinking. — read more
Bammel has the best Machine shop, Qc, and Machine shop ever
When will layoffs resume?
Analysts expect 5 cents a share profit. Is it possible that this non-profit organization will report its first profit in nearly 10 years? I doubt it.
NOV upper management is on dr-gs. They cannot think straight. What is the point of 3% raise ? Time to leave this company which is managed by a bunch of jokers.
Supervisors and employees leaving due to the 3% joke of a raise 3% for 7 years unbelievable
It wasn't like that before. Competencies and skills used to be valued more. Now the NOV treats those who are the most capable the worst. Managers are afraid of such employees, aren't they? I have no other explanation.
I don’t worry about being cut anymore but I feel more underpaid than ever, as I do more work than ever. I feel a little naive that I believed things would get better for us here when oil prices start to rise. They were very quick to eliminate jobs... — read more
Great place to work with one of the best benefits you find, collaborative work environment. Ongoing projects prioritizing health and safety. Various recognition events throughout the year. Upper management promote and value diversity and inclusion... — read more
World wide service will be adopting the same model as TESS! The service dept management teams will be consolidated and go to a 24 hour revolving clock! Likely to be Singapore, Norway, and Houston! Depending on the time of day that is the management... — read more
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
When are they give us raises? This is crazy. They keep makeng more VPs and stuff but cant give any us raises in the shop.
Everybody at Bammel please pay attention to the writing on the wall. Step off like Johnny Depp did before you go down with the ship.
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
With all this unnecessary painting of the floor. I dont know if iam at work or at my son's kindergarden
NOV’s stupid decision to dump the phone system for a computer phone network I think has backfired. I can’t talk to anybody in the company, so that means neither can customers. There should be way more work when a barrel of oil is 121 bucks. — read more
With the mass exodus over the last cpl of yrs, is there anyone decent left in mgmt? The real leaders with any integrity, work ethic, true compassion for their people are gone. Who is actually qualified to replace them? Would they even want it? There... — read more
I only see people come and go. Changes for the better I haven't noticed and NOV desperately needs improvements. Of all the companies I've worked for so far, I think NOV has the worst management.
I am tired of going from floor to floor, from office to office and not finding any good gossip! The problem is not enough people are coming into the office.I can’t even throw anyone under the bus for completely blowing an easy order for NEW rigs... — read more
No word of any raises from NOV in today's high inflation environment, but at least management is proud of the employees working here! Benefits stripped to bare minimum... Hooray! Now if only I could pay my bills with pats on the back... Good thing... — read more
I'm not saying I'm perfect, but it's very difficult to work on a project with someone whose position greatly exceeds his competencies and who lacks the skills to do the work effectively. Good management would address the issue of incompetent... — read more
