    I have been working at Schlumberger full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Schlumberger heavily invests in training it's employees - training centers are renowned in the industry.

    Pretty flexible with career progression

    Great co-workers - very diverse, interesting and fun people

    Compensated well - I have heard of people complaining about pay being less than some competitors, but then again how much money does a person really need?

    Benefits are pretty good

    A lot of room for movement in between services (lateral movement)

    Prove yourself by making it to year 3 and it gets better.

    .

    Cons

    -Horrible work/life compromise, I worked North America Land and regularly worked 3-4 weeks on with only 3 days or less time off in-between jobs.

    -In field work, there are no shifts, you work until the job is done. This can result in working 60+ hours non-stop if things end up going wrong (and get up hours later for the next "shift").

    -Turnover rate and expendability of employees in an downturn.

    -Employees commonly joke about the guiding principles of SLB are People, Technology and Profit; but the way the business is run, however, is Profit, Technology, People.

    Advice to Management

    Management can practice LEAN principles while ensuring the health and well-being of their employees. The health and safety standards of the company seem to be more like guidelines to follow, unless it becomes a sizable expense.
