Pros

Great training schemes and diverse career paths. Life in the field can be tough but at the end of the day it's rewarding and worth the long and intense working hours.

Cons

Work-life balance is a critical downside one can experience when working in the field. Working on rotation at a remote location (most typical scenario for a field engineer) doesn't allow you to take proper care of personal aspects in life.

Advice to Management

They can improve their foreman-like leadership style by focusing on developing other valuable and necessary soft skills than can positively influence subordinates.

    Pros

    international environment, good promotion system, excellent benefits, possibilities to move everywhere in the world, you get to make strong bounds with colleagues

    Cons

    In Schlumberger your personal life must not be important for you, work-life balance is completely outside of discussion. Work is first

    Advice to Management

    The nature of the bussiness requires people to work hard, but sometimes I found that management liked to keep everybody in a stress situation just because they could do it.
