Great company if you want to move to Houston TX
IT Manager (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – November 19, 2015
Schlumberger is a great company. It has great technology and great people. The job can be quite demanding, but if your boss isn't a jerk you can have a flexible schedule to compensate.
They have a rigorous corporate training program that is quite time demanding and isn't industry recognized, so you put in a lot of work for promotions, but you don't have any certifications to show for it. Promotions are extremely limited if you don't want to move to Houston, TX.
I enjoyed the wide range of tasks that I got to perform. I wasn't pigeonholed into one specialty and I loved the variety that offered. I hated the constant performance reviews and objectives that I couldn't control that were shoved onto me so as to limit my yearly bonus.
Great people; good benefits
Excessive pressure to advance; career progression requires moving to Houston
