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

Pros

steady work great people a lot of hard workers in key areas that go above and beyond to do a great job

Cons

leadership down is great. the leaders know the system but some do not care enough to actually do the job required.the employees that are in the key areas that make the system function need to be recognized for their hard work .

Advice to Management

management for some reason has the wool over their eyes at times , not wanting to see the real picture.pull it off go to the shop on ground floor and talk to the people that make the system work .and clean house.

    Pros

    Interesting Work - Loved the job
    Excellent trining program

    Cons

    Loved the work I was doing; but a miserable job experience. The corporate culture mimics the Egyptian slave labor system used for building the pyramids- work you till you drop, unhook your body, and hook up a fresh worker. Poor life balance- their corporate literature is great, but the reality does not resemble the ideals Schlumberger has on paper. Overwhelming work load, with no overtime allowed, forces you to "work off the books" with unbilled overtime. Many employees are no longer acruing vacation time, because they are maxed out, yet the work load won't permit time off. Great health benefits, but if you want to keep up with the workload, no time for doctor's appointments. Their literature repeatedly stresses the importance of health and life balance, but it's just not possible.

    Advice to Management

    Please make the corporate values espoused in your handbooks a reality.
