    Pros

    The company offers great benefits and there is the ability to move up in the company if you wish. Moving up in the company will allow your to see the world

    Cons

    Oil industry is a volatile business market and many jobs will not allow much time at home with the family.

    Pros

    Made good money and always something new every day. Nice people to work with.

    Cons

    It is the oil and gas industry so there is no job security. Ive been laid off twice by this company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep those that have the most experience and quit moving new people into management postions that have no clue as to what they are doing.

    Pros

    Big company for great experience

    Cons

    They say its a great company to transfer to different departments, but that is not true. Also, they overwork their employees. It is a big company which does not seem unified. This is the problem of Schlumberger buying other companies and everyone not working together.

    Advice to Management

    Unify the whole company every time you buy a new company and add it as segment. Locally and internationaly

    Pros

    It's what you make it. Learn as little or as much as you want but be prepared to work.

    Cons

    They will cut you loose in a second. They care nothing about the workers only money. You can make as much as you want to work.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your workers fairly and treat them like you would like to be treated.

    I have been working at Schlumberger full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Schlumberger is a great cmpany to work for. Good salary and benefits. There is opportunity to get training at various international training centers. Excellent HSE training and culture.

    Cons

    In my opinion having worked in maintenance, Schlumberger has been struggling to create a commesurate career progressioin for the maintenance (equipment assurance) group as they have for the field /operations group. If you are interested to advance to any top position you need to get a field job. Even the maintenance management post are mostly held by former field personnel.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to recognise the maintenance team and create a truly borderless career as they do for the field/ operation team.
