    Pros

    Opportunities to expand your career and to travel only if your manager decides to help you out.

    Cons

    The Financial HUB has an open floor space environment (which means there are no walls, not even cubicles between you and your co-workers!!). This is not an appropriate system for accountants when they need concentration at critical times. Management have told the employees to "get with it or come to work unhappy", they also said that the work place is not a democracy therefore they are not going to change their minds about the floor plan. This is not the best way to encourage your employees when they are already frustrated about the environment. Your work space is about 4 feet wide and that's it! There is no space to do almost anything, it is the most uncomfortable office environment I have ever worked at. You are not allowed to eat at your desk because the smell can offend all the people around you, you can't use the speaker phone, you are to "whisper" because you disrupt your co-workers since there's nothing to muffle the noise. Since there is no privacy, you need to go to a phone booth to make personal calls. If your spouse works and his/her job offers health insurance, but you decide to sign them up in your Schlumberger plan, the company penalizes you by charging you $100 a month on top of the premium you already pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, respect them as professionals by treating them as professionals. January 1st is a world wide holiday, so please, consider adding an extra day for YE close so your employees can spend time with their families. The numbers can wait.

    I have been working at Schlumberger full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Decent Pay
    Awesome Benefits
    Mostly Friendly People

    Cons

    Communication within management is horrible. At times, I didn't know who my boss was because I had several people telling how to do my job. The job itself was easy, but the paperwork and lack of common sense decisions made the job way harder than it has to be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have management training available before promoting a person to manager. Promote better communication between management and field personnel. Sometimes it easier to get things accomplished with less hand in the cookie jar.
