    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Schlumberger full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    See the world, work with amazing people from different cultures, learn more than you could ever imagine.

    Cons

    Lack of a personal life, often gone for weeks at a time. High pressure environment that is often isolating. Periods of time off do offer a chance to rest and recharge, though you may go in to the office to take care of other business while in town.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Dynamic work environment - Dedicated, hardworking coworkers - Lots of training, friendly environment, they want you to learn and be safe above all else - Salary was very good, higher Bottom line: I loved my coworkers and loved the work I did, and that, to me, exceeded the cons of redundant paperwork and excessive meetings. Due to the ease of layoffs, I wouldn't necessarily recommend this job unless you are young and wouldn't be severely impeded by a layoff (as opposed to a parent, or someone looking for more stability, someone mid-career, etc).

    Cons

    - Too many meetings could have been emails - A lot of redundancy in internal paperwork - Depending on your position and seniority, a lot of people take their work home with them (answering emails off hours, etc). It's not necessary to do so, but many people do. This is more true for manufacturing engineers. - Very quick to lay off BUT they do provide a severance package I would describe as fair to good.
