    I worked at Schlumberger as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gained a lot of experience and met a lot of good people. The pay was decent and most of the accommodations were taken care of by SLB.

    Cons

    Sometimes it was really unorganized and it took weeks before I was able to be out on a field job. The exit interview was rough and they are bad about communicating after the internship is over.
