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

Pros

The job pays very well and you gain a lot of experience fast.

Cons

As a field engineer, you do not utilize your engineering degree. It is not how recruitment paints it out to be. There is also 0 work life balance. I have heard multiple stories of management putting employees in situations they are not prepared for.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure all employees understand and follow standards and policies.

    Pros

    Use Schlumberger as a brand name to use on your resume to get your next job.
    They will hire almost anyone.
    They will give you lots of training.

    Cons

    If you're good at your job, you have to keep doing it.
    If you're bad at your job, you have to get out, which means up.
    Inconsistent enforcement of rules, something that's okay today can get you fired tomorrow.
    They will advertise incentives to get extra work out of you, and as soon as it starts working, they'll remove the incentives and call everything extra you do your job description.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting dumb employees.
