    I have been working at Schlumberger full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Money is not bad despite the huge cut off. The training program is good. All the field engineers go through extensive training program including training school from one to three months depends on which segment.

    Cons

    Endless hours of work with tough work schedule. I worked 11 days on 3 off. Field work is tough and most of the employees in the field are jerk. Coil Tubing management is bad. I wouldn't recommend working for the company if you are care about your social life.

    Advice to Management

    Get better work schedule for your employees

    Pros

    Great Pay and you get to see some really cool things you never would if you weren't in the oil industry.

    Cons

    Awful work life balance. Required to be on call all the time. No set schedule so can never plan to do things.

    I have been working at Schlumberger full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The experience you will gain working for Schlumberger is the best that you can get in the industry. The salary is very nice. The people that you work with are great.

    Cons

    The first 3 years working as a field engineer involve the vast majority of your time. If you want to have a social life outside of work, you may want to view your other options.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Schlumberger

    Pros

    Great benefits package, great 401k plan, lots of training, great place to start career. It is really a Your Mileage May Vary company; also the quality of work life depends on how your management leads your business segment.

    Cons

    There is too much internal politics. Promotions and choice assignments are given out on a favoritism scale. An unreasonable amount of work hours put in, the managers expect employees to live, breathe, and eat Blue. But not pay for quality work.

    Advice to Management

    It is common sense in the operations side of the house is that if you want the best people to work for you, then you have to pay the best salaries. Majority of field hands did not come to the oil industry for the dental plan...
