Current Employee - Sales Manager in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)
Current Employee - Sales Manager in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia)
Recommends
Disapproves of CEO

Pros

Great technology, hard working and dedicated people. Above average pay and benefits. Strong service and safety culture. Mistakes made two years ago are being corrected

Cons

Knee jerk reaction by region leadership focusing on short term results and no investment for the long term. Poor or none existing selling skills from the sales teams who struggle to win profitable work. Unrelenting focus on short term delivery of financial targets, turning into a retirement home for ex SLB managers in search of an easier life......

Advice to Management

Get the sales funnel sorted out, particularly in Asia PAC. Stop competing head on with SLB, we cannot win that game. Supply chain is a huge mess it is not getting any better.
