    Pros

    Clean safe work environment. Good benefits and pay.

    Cons

    Lay-off employees over 50 years of age and replace with young inexperienced employees. These actions typically occur in management roles which causes turmoil and disruption. This work practice creates total chaos with loss of time and money.

    These people have ruined some of my friends lives. The Lawyers are relentless and will not stop until they eliminate you from the workforce. Upper management is callus and cold.

    I worked at Schlumberger full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Pay, but then again most service companies pay well

    Cons

    One sided management. Experience does not count, degree only does. Family life or home time not there unless upper manager. Travel is okay but only economy seating while managers sit in business or first class. Older you are the faster they want you out

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

    Pros

    Good people. Interesting technology.

    Cons

    Dishonest HR practices and lack of transparency. Lack of corporation direction and strong management. Management by Objectives in one year cycles dominate everything and now quarterly IBT is the main corporate goal as a publicly traded company. Dying industry with lack of diversification. No control on future career path.

    Pros

    Decent pay, good training for safety, nice people, good to work for fresh out, company seems to care only the fresh out

    Cons

    No more technology projects, all about process and procedures, lack of leadership, management cannot decide, 6% matching for 401K, too diversified (have to transfer many due to visas in the middle of the projects) over engineered, no training after 5 years, toomany junior manager who lacks leadership and knowledge, short sighted, new engineers want to be managers after 3 years of work only

    I worked at Schlumberger full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very well-run company from a profit and loss standpoint, with a superior benefits package. Strong internal promotion program; highly international workforce and strong sense of ethics.

    Cons

    Please note that most entry-level jobs require considerable time in remote field locations, up to several weeks at a time. Company is somewhat ruthless about personnel layoffs during time of economic downturn, which is a hazard for the upstream oil industry in general.

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

    Pros

    Schlumberger is never short of technical challenges, and for software engineers, that is a dream life... Solving one problem after another. Often, these challenges span multiple product lines, and you will be rewarded with recognition and even bigger challenges if you are able to master the politics associated with these problems. It can be quite fun, but does require extraordinary energy with the silo'ed product lines.

    Cons

    The HR policies for software engineering are out of date, with a stick and carrot approach to appraisals. This has caused a culture of pleasing your manager (or their manager) and helping them with their annual objectives over solving the problems that clients or the business needs. Yes, this can work out when the annual objectives match client needs, but in software, the problems change so rapidly the team needs freedom and autonomy to respond without fear of their boss's reprisal.
