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

    Pros

    Provide sufficient amount of training for fresh out and non-Oil & Gas comers, and it's repetitive. So you will eventually standard safety mind set after few years which is very critical for working in Oil & Gas Industry

    Cons

    French World (The way they handle problems, promotion, policy, and people are very much French Bureaucratic Way) by French managers in key management role. This company is definately good company to start your career in Oil & Gas, but after 10 years not so much. This company focuses mainly on people below 35 years old. After 10 years working there, the company automatically identify you as a safe employee (never quit), so they provide not much attention or promotion to them. Some French management is very rude. In the meeting room in Houston, they sometimes speak only French at the begging, even though majority of the attendees were non-French speaking.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits Friendly coworkers Chances for upward growth Focus on diversity and inclusion

    Cons

    No control over career path, company does not post any open jobs but rather assigns people to new roles when they see fit. Schlumberger treats suppliers poorly (i.e. deciding to suspend payments to achieve quarterly earning objectives), making certain jobs very difficult and sacrificing delivery and customer satisfaction. As managers move frequently (2-3 years is the typical tenure), many decisions made only look at short term (3-6 month) business implications, ignoring long term health of the company. Frequent lay-offs, leaving groups consistently short-staffed and over-worked. Risk-adverse to a fault. Tends only to hire fresh-out technical employees
