I have been working at Schlumberger full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Schlumberger puts a huge enphasis on training and career development for each individual and will always promote from within to those who want it. Co workers in the field make coping with the sometime long hours manageable due to the SLB culture. There's support for families and employees which is reassuring and the pay and benefits is great depending on where you work. In comparison to other companies there's a great opportunity here and one could climb to great heights.

Cons

I work in the field as a supervisor over cementing operations. This is an on call schedule so my hours are speratic to say the least. And when it's busy I'm barely home but when it's slow I could be at home for 3 days without any need to go into work. So it makes planning difficult especially in your first year. It's not for everyone the long hours, physical strain, sleep deprivation will effect most people and families. It can get dirty and tedious and really demand a strong work ethic.

Advice to Management

I really don't have much to complain about.

    I worked at Schlumberger as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    good salary, good working environment, flexible, managers are nice, location is one of the best, cutting-edge technology, popular in the field.

    Cons

    everyone works hard, some work during the weekend, not lots of fun. But it's typical for R&D, you need to do intern multiple times to get a return offer. Someone has connections does not need to do it.

    I have been working at Schlumberger full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Training, Career plan, great team to work with, international workforce.

    Cons

    Promotion is based mostly in what you pretend you can do rather than what you can actually do... I’ve seen employees going up the ladder very quickly without any solid technical skills.

    Advice to Management

    Include tech assessment to promote field personnel, a good power point presentation is not enough to assess the employee technical competency.
