    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 Management

    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.
