I have been working at Schlumberger full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Training, Career plan, great team to work with, international workforce.

Cons

Promotion is based mostly in what you pretend you can do rather than what you can actually do... I’ve seen employees going up the ladder very quickly without any solid technical skills.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Include tech assessment to promote field personnel, a good power point presentation is not enough to assess the employee technical competency.

    I worked at Schlumberger as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    good salary, good working environment, flexible, managers are nice, location is one of the best, cutting-edge technology, popular in the field.

    Cons

    everyone works hard, some work during the weekend, not lots of fun. But it's typical for R&D, you need to do intern multiple times to get a return offer. Someone has connections does not need to do it.
