Pros

They move you positions about every two years, good exposure to different areas within finance and the business. Some travel opportunities depending on which department you work in.

Cons

-Below market pay -Management hesitant to give you opportunities that you have proven you are capable of. -They will marginalize and squeeze you as much as they can. Truly a slave driver. -With no show of appreciation or care for their employees -Opportunities and management positions are given to inexperienced employees (still not sure why) when there are many higher qualified employees available. -Everything is a secret and as an employee you do not know where you are headed in your career. Lots of uncertainties regarding career advancement for such a structured organization. -Senior management lacks fundamental knowledge of finance and strategic management. -Financial HUB provides no privacy. No office or cubicles.

Advice to Management

Provide advancement to those who have proven themselves worthy. Provide fair compensation. Treat experienced employees with due respect and career opportunities, they are valuable assets to the company. The management culture does not realize this and rather replaces those experienced employees with college grads or hires externally experienced individuals that have no idea what they are doing. This leads to overall high turnover and negatively affects our financials due to inaccuracies and inefficiencies.

  1. A great company to spend the Summer with as an intern. And a better place to make a career afterwards.

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

    Pros

    If you intern here it will open so many doors for you afterwards. Schlumberger interns are highly valued in the field and having it on your resume and a strong rec. is extremely valuable.

    Cons

    There is a significant crunch period previous to finishing. Although that may be group specific.
