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

Pros

Very organized training for new employee, you can really learn a lot. Again , only if you are interested in oil industry.
Averagely high salary, especially when you are at Houston area, a place that is famous for low living cost.

Cons

Rosharon site is pretty far away from Houston downtown, nothing except corns that you can see outside your window. But that means it gives you no attemptation and you can focus on your job and learning.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It is really about which group and team you are at. My manager is a nice boss and provides great patience as well as knowledge. Not sure about other sites.

    Pros

    SDR gives its scientists access to excellent research resources. They are provided with a fair amount of latitude to explore topics of interest to them, but the results are evaluated critically in terms of successful migration into new oil field measurement tools. To succeed in the organization, the research needs to eventually lead to new revenue for the company.

    Cons

    SDR is biased towards physical scientists and away from engineers. Engineers have much more support in Sugar Land.
