Dumbfounded management
Segment Sales Engineer (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 16, 2018
Poor management decisions. Reactive, not proactive. Over priced. Constant management changes produce little to nothing in return. Non-productive personnel move forward.
Pros
Not applicable
Cons
Management decisions leave you guessing?

Less than expected
Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Roswell, NMMay 16, 2018
Management was removed from operators and operators would let power go to their head creating tension. Engineers 20 something year olds in charge of millions worth of equipment and scheduling. Some were too interested in being young and party too much, lack of personal hygiene. In the end the yard got shut down due to poor customer support and loss of customer base.

Productive and fun workplace
Testing Technician (Former Employee) –  Rosharon, TXMay 15, 2018
A typical workday would be to clock in and get the pass down from the day shift team members. Depending on what they were assigned to do that day, i would take over for them to continue the sufficient work load we had.
Pros
Overtime
Cons
Hours

Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 12, 2018
Schlumberger is the company to work for if one is interested in honing his/her engineering skills and working on challenging engineering projects. As a design engineer you will be given lots of responsibility and will learn a lot interacting with various domain experts.

Very demanding job with intensive rotation
Directional Driller & MLWD Engineer (Current Employee) –  Pyt-YakhMay 11, 2018
Working in the field is very demanding, in addition to that work/life balance is unfair to some extent. At least, you want to get something back while giving up most of your life for that company. However, it is not a place where it happens.
People are very clever here, it is a lot of fun to work back-to-back with such specialists, having the same rotation schedule.
Pros
Salary
Cons
Rotation, management

Office work is your best bet
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Henderson, COMay 10, 2018

Pros
Great pay
Cons
All work No play for lack of better words

Very laid back place to work at.
Receptionist (Current Employee) –  Rosharon, TXMay 10, 2018
The only problem I have is with management they give the managers too much power so they are able to do whatever they want. When something happens the employees with no power are not able to defend themselves because the managers do what they want.

Buyer (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXMay 8, 2018

Pros

Cons
Too many management changes.
