I worked at Schlumberger
Pros – They will let you travel, work with expensive tools. They will train you as well.
Cons – This company is heavily dependent on the oil price. If oil price will go down you will get fired. For engineers except petroleum ones there is a high probability that you will loose your engineering skills after working for a while at SLB. For example if you an EE or CS major and you will decide to change your employment the new employer tend to view negatively experience in oil business because they think it is not technological which if often not the case.
Advice to Senior Management – i would ask them to be more fair to the people at the end of the food chain.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Advice to Senior Management – Treat employees with respect and consider the value they add to the company, balance the workload, train employees, and inform the staff of upper management decisions.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
