    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Schlumberger full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working on rotations gives you more time to travel and enjoy life when you're off. The money isn't bad either.

    Cons

    Management is ABSOLUTE RUBBISH. Treatment is abusive, seriously!! borderline slavery. They promised a 2 week on, 1 week off rotation, then we ended up stranded in the desert for over a month straight. When that was done, they refused to book us flight tickets home and said that if we wanted to leave, we had to pay for it ourselves, when we were literally in the middle of nowhere!!!! You're supposed to work a 12 hour shift, but in fact, it's more like 16 hours straight most days. It was just brutal. Then the paycheck at the end of the month just didn't add up in comparison to the work put in. Not worth the misery! But that's just me.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know where to start... Read a book or two on basic management perhaps.
