Not much training when you start your role and you just have to learn everything yourself as you go. Very much a blame culture, no one looks for solutions when things go wrong they just look to point their fingers at someone!
Pros
Good company benefits
Cons
Blame culture

There is a very clique culture at Nov. If your particular manager puts you in his, you are pretty much ok. If not, you constantly fighting for your own job at every round of redundancies

Whilst i enjoyed my actual job i believe that management had a low opinion of time served people and because of this started employing semi skilled which led to an inferior product which in turn in my opinion aided the start of redundancies and even the thread of closure which it is under now. Although i am from an engineering background I learned quite a lot about high pressure testing in relation to their product. The culture within the workforce was in general to do their job to the best of their ability. The worst part of the job was being rushed in order to get the product out the door. The most enjoyable was workmates whom all respected each other.
Pros
medical insurance & decent pension.
Cons
Management attitude to shop floor workers

A tough company to work for with the current climate. Poor management and little room for progression, salary is a little below competitive.

Everyday is a busy day at NOV, satisfying the requirements of our customers, in our industry (Oil & Gas) reaction & on time delivery of our products is essential, our office is very well managed with a strong commitment from all staff who get on well both inside & out of the work place. There is also a strong emphasis on training to help staff to better understand the products/equipment that we supply. The most enjoyable part of my job is passing on the knowledge & information I have learned in order to help my fellow colleagues.

mye bøying av rør og montering av hydrauliske komponenter. lært masse hydraulikk og mekanisk arbeid. min nærmeste ledelse har jeg hatt godt samarbeid med. folkene jeg jobber med har vært veldig hyggelig og jeg har trivdes godt med de. det vanskeligste med jobben er venting på deler og tegninger.
Pros
gode pensjons og forsikrings ordninger.
