    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Comprehensive training program, pretty good benefits, lots of room for growth if you don't quit first, international travel.

    Cons

    Bloated management is incentivised by a bonus program that makes an unpleasant environment for lower level employees. Managers are promoted based on years of experience, not skills managing people. Hours are long and pay is not competitive for <5yr experience. Most field engineers make it a year before quitting. Corporate does nothing for retention. The bottom line and keeping the customer happy is more important than your happiness, safety, or work life balance.

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Schlumberger full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Get to travel, meet new people and visit new areas. Compensation is decent.

    Cons

    No schedule, long time away from home and family. Tools sometimes work, office restructures constantly, people quit constantly, too many changes in policy to figure out who to call next or what to do next.

    Advice to Management

    Just sell the US land division, what works internationally does not work on US land.
