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

Pros

Resources. Global presence. Travel opportunities. Great people.

Cons

Duplication of effort. With 120K employees and many different business units you can spend a month working on something that someone else has already written a solution for before you find out the work is not needed.

    I have been working at Schlumberger full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Learn about oil field services. The benefits are good and you do get overtime and holiday pay. If you enjoy structured work then this is a good place to work.

    Cons

    You do have to work a lot of hours for the money. Its a challenge working for such a large corporation. This company is driven by the gas economy so if there is a period of slow drilling then you have a chance to be let go.

    I worked at Schlumberger full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    During the 14 years career, there was mostly positive experience to be had, though my last position forced me to leave, due to an incompetent and clueless boss.

    Cons

    Some clueless and incompetent people promoted too quick as a result of equal opportunity initiative.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful who you promote.
