A local South African Company(Algoa Oil) was taken over by an international company, National Oilwell Varco. This was a huge culture change. Learning to deal with different methods and operating procedures was a great learning opportunity. The local management had to adapt to international mindset and a lot of new procedures applied. The work culture grew as we learned new operating systems and exposed more to new regulatuons. Applying the new mindset to older thinking managers seemed to be the difficult challenge. Meeting,learning and teaching personal on such a huge supportive level made the day great.
Exposure to International experiences and regulations
No opportunity to grow due to old internal management issues
NOV is by far one of the most rewarding workplace I've worked at. They provide you with all the relevant training, personally, emotionally and career wise to prepare you for working in the most harsh and dangerous environments there is. Apart from that, it is very fun and positive workplace. You are able to spend a fair amount of quality time with your family, more then any other company would offer. Personally had the opportunity to work on experimental rigs, assisting on developing control and data acquisition software. I would recommend this company to anyone.
Everyday is a learning and getting better day Learnt communication skills and respect Great management Family culture co-workers Facing difficult customers is hard The challenges and exposure is enjoyable
Culture and Compensation
Unexpected travel calls
The company has had a huge turn over rate ever since a new supervisor took over and decided to run things his way. Everyone who wants to move up in the company he ends up having a issue with. The benefits are great but the manufacturing supervisor is the biggest issue in manufacturing and has his favorites.
