Pros

Schlumberger training is top notch. Safety is held in the highest regard. Compensation and insurance is better than most. If you're willing to put in the hours and have a high attention to detail and are a quick learner you will go far with this company.

Cons

Stress at SLB is very high as business is good. Moral is very low and there is a big disconnect between management and those that work for them.
OT is strongly encouraged and you will be made to feel that it's mandatory when in actuality it isn't. Promises made aren't always kept.

    Pros

    Get good training & experience to take somewhere else.

    Cons

    Everything. No social life, no days off. Overworked & exhausted. Management treats field personnel with complete disrespect. Everything promised by recruiters is untrue. They cycle through employees...hire loads of new trainees when work load has spiked, and then layoff everyone when the work is not coming in instead of sending them to other locations.
