    I worked at Schlumberger full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    1. In general, very smart colleagues to work with.
    2. Working environment is excellent, individual office.
    3. Lots of seminars and talks if one want to broaden ones horizon.

    Cons

    1. The pay is very average and pay raise may be stagnant because of the training program Advance.
    2. A lot of side-activities, such as training or metier learning and use lots of working time.
    3. Transfer policies makes it hard for employees with families.
    4. Your career is totally in the control of your manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The transfer policy bothers a lot of employees. The management should move those who are willing to move and leave those who are not mobile. Don't make people feel like they have to move.

    The training and learning process is more than necessary.

    I worked at Schlumberger full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people, Decient pay, a few perks like Campany discounts almost anywhere.

    Cons

    For most Technicians at the sugarland Location, it is very hard to get a promotion. It took me three years with steller reviews to get my last one. I ended up finding another job before they could make me a better offer to stay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Educate your Technicians on how they can earn their promotions. I would have been a Lifer if I got my promotion sooner. Also don't treat them like they are expendable, I never really felt this way, but I know others who did.
