Everyday changes
Oil and Pumping Company Field Ticket Specialist (Former Employee), Midland texasAugust 23, 2014
Pros: the money is great.the lodging for people that worked there
Cons: no training, no communication, no togetherness
Everyday at Schlumberger was different. In formation and the tool to complete the mission we not give on a daily basis. Workers had to figure things out for them selves with the least bit of training.

Mechanical Technician (Current Employee), San Antonio, TXAugust 21, 2014
Pros: great benefits, plenty of hours
Cons: time away from family
Schlumberger is a great company to work for. The work schedule is difficult if you have a family, but the compensation and benefits are great. You will find most of your earnings in overtime.

Challenging and Rewarding
Reservoir Engineering Intern (Former Employee), Houston, TXAugust 19, 2014
- A typical day at work is very hectic and includes analysis and interpretation of data
- Through this job, I learnt the art of managing time and also to work overtime f need be to meet the objectives and requirements of projects.
- The management supports you in all ways possible to get the best out of you
- Co-workers are very amicable and approachable. – more... They are great sources of knowledge and wisdom and always spare an ear for what you have.
- Hardest part is data acquisition and quality control.
- The most enjoyable part would be the satisfaction of completing the projects within stipulated time and learning volumes about something outside your comfort zone. – less

Safety first
Line Boss (Current Employee), Von Ormy, TXAugust 7, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: no catering
Safety first is key. To go home just as you came to work. The typical day at work was good especially if your surrounded by good hard working people. The hours are long but that's what comes with any oil field job. Rigging up and down could be stressful but with team work and the motivation to get it done doesn't make it as bad. Once things are in place – more... and running its all up to you to maintain your equipment as best as you can. – less

Too many Management changes.
Senior Electronics Technician (Tech III) (Former Employee), Henderson, COJuly 14, 2014
Pros: electronic training/schools
Cons: management
Too many manager changes - leads to poor management within the work environment. Difficult challenges in advancing up the chain - due to the constant changes in managers.

Most enjoyable part of the job was involved in performing modifications, upgrades, overhauls, and testing of new engineering technologies, in prototype stages prior to becoming commercialized

Not what you may have thought
Operations and Acquisition Specialist (Current Employee), Houston, TXJuly 10, 2014
This company has a lot of promises that it never can keep. The HR is the worst and the pay is pathetic to the amount of work that you really work. Job security is a no go and in all the company isn't a good company to work for. The only great thing about this company is the different people that you get the opportunity to work with.

Managers were not Americans
Lab Technician (Former Employee), Midland, TXJuly 1, 2014
Pros: great advancement highest paying company
Cons: managers from other countries who hate americans
I daily delt with people who were from 3rd world countries ruled by dictators and they hated Americans. Being an American working in America i was always persecuted by people from Venezuela, Columbia, and Islamistan . The pay was great, im not going to lie. Ive never been paid more in my life. Another downside was the work/life balance. Working 26 days – more... and having 4 off is no way to balance a life. – less

Terrible and Does not care about employees
Equipment operator (Current Employee), North Slope, AlaskaJune 12, 2014
Pros: the food is good
Cons: no job security.
I have worked for Schlumberger for almost three years and have never felt secure with the company. People come and people go, some by choice and some with no notice are sent home and never return. The company will keep you on during the busy season and let you go during the slow season. You can be replaced and they do not value you as an employee. My – more... pay was cut in half and then they back dated my pay cut, so my paycheck was not enough to pay my cable bill for one pay period. I was expecting $1800 and my check was just over $300. My bills could not be paid!! I do not recommend this place to anyone!! They mess with you and there is no job security! My finances may never recover from what they have done. I can't make my car payments for the month and will be borrowing from my 401k to pay bills. Think twice before accepting a position. They make it sound as if they care about you but they don't. I had to give every category a one star because there was nothing less......I would give it maybe a 1/4 star. – less
