    I have been working at Schlumberger full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Always new projects to work on. Work with good team and have ability to learn a lot.

    Cons

    Projects are always started and cancelled. Feel like my engineering efforts never get to become reality. Want to move to another position, but feel like there's no assistance in doing this.

    Advice to Management

    Seems like always too many managers that are just filling gaps. Cost of living is increasing but not the pay.

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

    Pros

    They provide an outstanding training program. No prior oil field experience is necessary

    Cons

    It is a large company, so you are treated more like a number or an asset than a person. Depending on the product line you choose, you might love your job or hate it.

    Advice to Management

    Need to take into account personal considerations and evaluate every aspect of employees rather than treating them as just a number. Also need better management
