Pros

You are always surrounded by interesting and smart people.

Cons

There is a lot of movement within the company making it difficult to ever feel settled.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Slow down the movement, but when you decide to make a change, stick with it for a while.

    I worked at Schlumberger full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The opportunity to learn and become experienced in some very specific and vital areas of oil field service technology. Oilfield technology is one the most wide open development and engineering areas and Schlumberger is at the front of it. Extensive support for personal improvement in education or skills. And the opportunity to go into field work which can provide an interesting life experience.

    Cons

    It does have much of the typical big company bureaucracy but nothing that is overwhelming. The advancement path to high level positions is not obvious. It will take some active effort on your part to build those pathways.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Carefully scrutinize who are the most productive workers and advance them in pay and position so that you have the best people leading. Don't rely on simply years of service.

    thick organization ie 130,000 employess, you will be lost in the crowd

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get rid of this ADVANCE screening process, you will lose talent. No one wants to go back to school after getting out of school.
