    Neutral Outlook

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

    Pros

    Acquired as part of larger company (SLB), some greater job stability

    Cons

    All of the benefits of working for a small company vanished, with none of the benefits of working for schlumberger to take its place; no opportunity for career advancement, pay stayed pathetically low, work load increased, expected results stayed the same and increased without any real support to grow the employees or the business unit. No real motivation to stay which is why most of the people I know have left.

    Advice to Management

    Value your technical people in SWS the same way you do in OFS or you will lose them. But I think you already know that.
