Facility Manager (Former Employee) –  AlgerOctober 14, 2017
Avoir beaucoup de responsabilités implique beaucoup de pression et de stresse. seulement la culture de l'entreprise permettait de développer les connaissances et les habités et surtout l'experience dans le gestion.

Not Happy with the company
Directional Driller Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKOctober 13, 2017
They hire so many contractors, but there is not job available for them. Contractors get paid daily with no other benefits and no schedule. Sometimes for more than 2 month there is not even a single day on the job.

It Pays Well
Lead Electronics Technician (Former Employee) –  Denton, TXOctober 12, 2017
All i can say is that if you don't have a life anyway, you might as well get paid to not have one. The pay is great and the local discounts are nice. I see my family maybe 7 days a month and even then it's usually spent sleeping. but the bills are paid and i cant complain. you know exactly what you're signing up for. They're extremely transparent on my work level, until the rumors about lay offs start flying.
Pros
pay
Cons
no life balance. all work & sleep

Main Yard contact to all locations and salesman (Former Employee) –  Frisco, TXOctober 11, 2017
Excellent place to work when they are financially stable. The market is not stable right now, making working there stressful wondering if you would be still employed the next week.

Completions Tool Operator II (Current Employee) –  TexasOctober 11, 2017
good training program. spend an extended time away from family. hated the schedule they had, worked 24/7 on call all the time. some months are slow and spent majority of the slow months sitting at home. management was good.
when you are working you can make some good money with overtime, but on the slow months you make less than someone will at McDonalds.
Pros
Good benifits
Cons
low pay compared to other companys

Coil Tubing Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Kenai, AKOctober 11, 2017
Overall a great company to work for. Sometimes it is way overboard with paperwork and certifications. endless paperwork, not much time to do actual job.

High class corporate company
Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 9, 2017
Schlumberger is a fair company with great benefits and interesting work. It is easy to learn a lot in this company. The downsides are immobility (partially because of the downturn) and the lack of upward mobility. Once in a segment, it can be very difficult to switch segments. Additionally, the training program is very long (3 years usually) and you are not allowed to change positions in this time

Good training, poor pay, lots of lies
Coil Tubing Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Prudhoe Bay, AKOctober 5, 2017
Good place to get trained, but best to move on once you have the skills to. Management lies a lot and tries to hide every little change that will negatively affect the revenue making employees. They also take zero responsibility for anything that may affect their yearly bonus. However, I met a lot of great people working with SLB, just wish they treated their employees better.
