Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at National Oilwell Varco full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great career prospects in the past, less so now in the current O&G environment. Interesting and challenging work. Multicultural work environment, both internally and customers. Fairly... remunerated for your work.

Cons

Inter-divisional politics can be a challenge (but its like that elsewhere too).
