Weatherford closed now Baker Hughes to close. Years of knowledge going down the drain. Feeling really sorry for all that have and are about to loose there jobs
Can someone explain to the world what it is exactly that this group does? Covid has just allowed these plugs to sit around and collect pay checks. Let’s hope previous post about Halliburton is true.
Before I left a few years ago, Weatherford was trying to cut its way to profitability. Has it worked yet?
Welcome to Halliburton. It will be really interesting to see how the Globe VP and Managers fair. Most of them have been hiding / working in their home countries opposed to Houston, collecting big fat pay checks. RH is just running a friends and... — read more
I wish I took the opportunity to leave when it presented itself a little over a year ago. But I was an id--t. It was the height of the pandemic and I didn't want to risk losing a sure thing for what might turn out to be a temporary job. I can't... — read more
Any news on the folks who left?
Heard that today. Good riddance. Treats people like cr-p and is never happy. Incompetent nincompoop.
In the past 5-10 years we as the core have seen several leaders in the C-suite come and go. Each having their own sl--t on the future of our organization and bring in their own team. This is a understandable practise, it’s about trust and one must... — read more
Period end of the story. Total waste or money
This group HAS to be restructured. Whether it be Integrated Projects, DS, WC, WL, etc they all are redundant and have ivory tower arrogance. During Covid it has got so ridiculous. Barking orders from Houston and all playing the cover you a-s... — read more
I have friends who work in other companies in this industry and when we talk about the atmosphere in general, they also have remarks that it is amazing how much incompetence has taken hold in their companies as well. Is there any logical... — read more
Do you know how you can tell that WFT has cr---y managers? Because the only way they know how to manage is through fear. 'Let's keep everybody in line by constantly threatening them with losing their jobs (through firings or layoffs, it doesn't... — read more
Make a guess.
After years of poor performance, lack of leadership getting shutdown.
Heard they rehired few they let go before... Some have bailed once they found something better. But re hiring family members again.
Recently I quit here at Weatherford and sure, I had an exit interview. It was conducted via Teams with HR, but all they said was sign here, here, Cobra, list of phone numbers and that’s it. Not one question was asked about the employee’s experience... — read more
I’m satisfied, but I think I could have achieved a lot more in a company where favoritism is not as big a problem as it is here. I’ve always loved just my job but I didn't want to play games to be among someone’s favorites to achieve all my... — read more
Ever since I started working here, I have always done a lot more than is in my job description. That has never changed. Some people say they refuse to do anything that goes beyond the scope of their job, however, I am in such a situation that I... — read more
How has morale been lately at WFT? I left about a year before the pandemic hit in big part to escape what the company had done to its employees. It felt like everybody was depressed all the time. I've been hoping that things have improved since then... — read more

You can put al the lipstick you want on a pig...but it is still a pig.
For those of us still hanging on by a thread, we are constantly micromanaged and consistently told we need to prove our value to the company. For what.
I don’t know what percentage of those laid off are rehired, but I guess it’s very small. I am interested in those who agreed to be rehired, how much worse conditions did they agree to? From what I heard, they offered much worse conditions. It's awful... — read more
I can tell you that we're sick of working with broken equipment, sick of all the initiatives, sick of all the broken promises, sick of looking at was once a good company run into the ground by incompetent management, so we'll ride it out for a while... — read more
Yoo Hoo, is anybody left? It's getting very quiet on here !!!!!
No matter how invested some people are in their work and this company, professional and talented, one has to come to terms with the fact that good ideas are generally not welcome here. I know a lot of people who had great ideas that weren’t valued... — read more
I have to celebrate this. It took me a long time to find a new job and I was hesitant to accept a job at a company that offered me a slightly lower pay, but in the end I accepted because I think working conditions are generally much better than here... — read more
How much longer are they going to let WM ruin manufacturing sites? This guy and his Cameron crew of clowns is ridiculous. When will our new VP dump him for someone from GE
I'm still laughing after watching the employee video contest winner the other day! What pathos. Everyone is smiling and everyone is happy to be working here. Yes of course. /s.
My money is on West Gulf Bank or Scott Mfg. what is the word??
Got a $40 watch—-it’s the truth!!!!

Can the logistics dept. do anything right?...fed up with them.
Education and experience mean nothing in this company anymore. People with most skills and experience are also the ones most humiliated in this company. I couldn't take it anymore and I left. I became sick of the mediocrities that brought this... — read more
