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

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
What's going on there ?
Total restructuring of the entire business unit! Management, supervisors, and technician/shop will all be filtered out! The repair shop will be shut down and work sent to contractors! Service will thin 25-35% at every level with a majority... — read more
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.
FGS used to be such a great group, but over the past few years there have been some bad management decisions and promotions and the culture is now very political and toxic. Many good people have bailed due to these issues and it looks like more are... — read more
However, it looks like more people will quit this poorly managed place in the coming months?
Can we expect layoffs before the end of May? Or sometime in June?
It's become fascinating how the management is always ready to blame the employees for everything that is not good here. They never accept their own share of responsibility? Our only fault is that we didn't leave this place a long time ago.
NOV still working in Russia? They never let ethics get in the way of losing money.
Isn’t NOV a non profit organization? If so, they are doing an amazing job.
All of NOV’s competitors reported profits in Q1. Can someone explain why this is?
If a recession hits, is it possible for NOV to lay people off without severance? Usually, I'm not too worried about being laid off because I know that with severance I'll have enough time to find something new. However, since somebody mentioned that... — read more
I say horse dookie!
NOV Inc. (NOV) on Thursday reported a loss of $50 million in its first quarter. The Houston-based company said it had a loss of 13 cents per share. The results fell short of Wall Street expectations. The average estimate of eight analysts... — read more
The CEO once again, blames everything & everybody except his pathetic self & his atrocious executive team. So much BS spewing out on the call along with the most boring history on oil/gas lesson. Literally fell asleep with his opening statement. smh ... — read more
I think that NOV no longer cares about quality at all. When I first started working here, the company gave much more importance to quality. How big an impact will a poor quality product have on NOV? Any thoughts? Of course, poor quality can... — read more
NOV has a VP of Finance reporting to a VP of Finance who reports to another VP of Finance who reports to another VP of Finance and that position then reports to the to SVP Finance/CFO. On the org chart, it looks like this SVP Finance/CFO | VP... — read more
NOV inc is a perfect example of how a fool (namely it's share holders) and their money are easily parted. The company does not need to make a profit because the share holders sustain it's survival within the market. For every employees sake prey the... — read more
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
Analysts expect another losing quarter. But that is ok, that is how we operate.
All of you who hate NOV because of its toxic culture are turning into the thing you hate the most. This place is now overflowing with bullies. No, I'm not talking about management. Most of them were and remain as-----s, there was no change there. I'm... — read more
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.
I have never, in almost eight years of being here, seen so many people leaving. What makes it even scarier is that a lot of those who are leaving were very comfortable working here. Why are so many people leaving?
NOV has been losing money since 2014. Will the company finally start making money?
I'm tired of changing shifts. I was happy with pay, but given the constantly changing shifts, it’s not worth staying here anymore. The organization is terrible, they are just producing confusion. Has anyone refused to change a shift and what were... — read more
