    Pros

    Great training
    emphasis on safety
    opportunities for promotion and growth

    Cons

    Extremely political
    Management changes every couple of years so you wind up with people who have no idea what they're doing and by the time they do they're moved elsewhere.
    Promise of growth and a variety of positions but those are limited to either sales or operations.
    Strong emphasis on culture but it's beat down by all the politics

    Advice to Management

    Follow your own rules and regulations. CEO wants you to follow the accountability matrix so why don't you?


  2. "Unique and much different from other industries"

    I worked at Schlumberger full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing opportunity to learn general management . One has to do a bit of everything ; Team building and management , Logistics , Finance ,Technical problem solving, client management etc . There is a steep learning curve for first two years at this position .

    Cons

    Work Life balance can be a bit odd at times , specially for Field Service Managers . Work on rig happens 24/7 , and since FSM is responsible for flawless service delivery at rigsite , one can always expect a call at 2 AM in the night when something gone awry .One needs to be on call at all the times and keep checking mails .

    Advice to Management

    Field Service Managers should be trained adequately instead of letting them swim or sink on their own .
