I worked at Schlumberger

Pros

great opportunities for training, good on the job experience, early opportunities to take responsibility, pretty good opportunities overall for career development

Cons

too much big company politics, easy to get stuck in a career plateau, salary becomes limited after several years on job

Advice to ManagementAdvice

move people about to different jobs and different locations and to work with different clients as much as possible to develop the individual

    I have been working at Schlumberger

    Pros

    The money, training and opportunity for advancement is very good, if you can get out of the field.

    Cons

    You work 24 hours, live on a rig, sleep very little, and never know when you will have a day off. When you do have a day off, you are afraid whenever your phone rings, because you might have to pack up and go to a job for an unknown amount of time, usually 1 month...might be 3. 24 hours, no weekends, no holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat new employees better and you might be able to improve the turnover rate.
