    I worked at Schlumberger full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Travel the world, often to very remote locations you would rarely, if ever, visit on your own.
    Training is exceptional and particularly challenging.
    Coworkers often become your best friends, many great people at Schlumberger.

    Cons

    Travel and work schedule often leads to long periods away from home and any family you would ever hope to see.
