    Pros

    Great pay, great training program, a lot of opportunity for growth. You will meet people from all over the world and have the opportunity to travel all over the world

    Cons

    They will work you until you drop. Expect to sleep in the back of pickups at dig sites you will likely be living at for days at a time.

    Advice to Management

    Watch out for the little guy. My location of ~20 engineers and operators experienced over 30 resignations in the year before and during my arrival, mostly due to an overzealous FM and little to no recourse for the operators and engineers


  2. "Great company to begin with."

    Advice to Management

    The problem is not today, it is 4 years from now. Good Mgrs are leaving because of how they are treated by HR, which for me is the weakest point in SLB structure. As they leave, less experienced mgrs get the position. This new generation grew up with the idea of every man for itself, up to the point of getting in the way and delaying decisions / work / etc if they are not in their objectives. As a consecuence, everybody works to complete their objectives and nothing else. Mood and environment generated from this and the way Hr does nothing but to convince people they are going to be better treated in another company ( a common answer by HR is if you do not like it is the door is open; instead of applying the techniques SLB promotes in their many personnel courses)... is a time bomb. Meanwhile, revenue keeps growing. Is this the right way to make stockholders happy?
