    I worked at Schlumberger full-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed the 9/80 schedule. The work wasn't over demanding if you have a good boss. All the bosses I had was nice.

    Cons

    It's hard to settle down and focus on work in the company when many of the young people hired in my group either we're let go during the oil down turn or they left for other companies. O think they did a very poor job in handling employee termination. HR either sent the person packing with a box on the same day for those who were let go or HR seems bitter if the person leaves for another company. For example, I still have received my vacation comp pay after more than half a year of termination. They have been ignoring my email. But since oil price seem to be picking back up, they may have more resources and money to improve the culture and better support the employees

    Advice to Management

    Use this coming up turn in oil price to improve trust and build employee relationships.
