Pros

I studied physics and the work I do is very relevant to my education. The company is also able to financially support your graduate studies if this is something you would like to pursue. I emjoy my job, even though it is stressful at times. There are plenty of opportunities for growth and expanding your career at SDS. Since Halliburton is a very large organization, there are also opportunities to change your career if you would like tol. There is a great deal of awareness that young professionals are crucial to the growth of the organization.

Cons

The work never finishes no matter how hard you work, so you have to manage time effectively. At times it is difficult to align your goals with the organization's goals.

Advice to Management

Young professionals are the future, please continue to guide and mentor them.

    Pros

    Very attractive remuneration package compared to competitors, friendly and relaxed working environment and colleagues, global career opportunities, clear and unbiased assessment of skills and competencies.

    But i must say, one of the most appealing factor working in Sperry Drilling Services is the good and more relaxed nature of it's people, unlike some of the competitors.

    Cons

    Lack of schedule management, and overall management and development of people weren't so good.
    (as a field professional, the work schedule isn't the normal 5-2 in a week, but rather spending several weeks working field, and about couple of weeks spending time off in town. Due to lack of people, the balance of time-on and off is a little bit exhausting)

    Advice to Management

    We need to focus more on people development, most of our people get their knowledge from unverified source, sometimes this leads to confusion and failure.

    Pros

    The pay and time off ... but only because it's Norway. Anywhere else and it would jsut be the oilfield. But thanks to the SOCIALIST Norewgian government - its different. Better py better conditions, better time off.

    Cons

    Lack of "career"... keep you in the position you're in.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to workers... call them!
