This was a great place to work.
Electronics Technician (Former Employee) –  North DakotaOctober 20, 2018
I would fly out and work for two weeks straight and come back home for five days. Working out in the oil fields came with a lot of pressure. When something got broken it needed to be fixed right away because time is money.

Great Benefits, Not a Glamorous Work Culture
Human Resources Representative/Generalist (Current Employee) –  Rock Springs, WYOctober 18, 2018
Great if you need good benefits. Locations of work are generally remote, so that has ton be ok with your lifestyle. The work culture is stressful and demanding, but there is flexibility in your day as long as you are available by phone/email and get your work done. Would have to love oil and gas, not the industry for everyone.
Pros
High Pay
Cons
Stressful Work Environment

Great place at first HIGH TECH
LogNet Operator (Former Employee) –  Sedalia, COOctober 18, 2018
Great place with great people for the first 15 years. A lot of new and big time tech advancements in the mid 80's a lot of fun.
Then the beans needed to be counted and the oil and gas business is not the most solid.
Pros
high tech great people
Cons
Job security is just not there

Good intro to oilfield
Cased Hole Wireline Field Specialist (Former Employee) –  Shreveport, LAOctober 16, 2018
Everyone in the oilfield knows, if you come from SLB, anyone will hire you. That's because of their incredibly detailed training in all their divisions and their highly functioning management and career advancement in the company. Promotions are clear and defined and attainable, should you desire to put in the work. Sometimes it may feel like they micromanage a bit but that's how they are able to hire nearly anyone despite lack of experience. If looking to break into the oilfield, SLB is where to start.
Pros
all the bennies and the salary, opportunity to travel, great training
Cons
Long hours, intense schedule, high stress environment, sometimes dangerous

Very dense
Materials Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Rosharon, TXOctober 15, 2018
They had a nice workout facility. Management was horrible for our group. They were all about lean six sigma and the 5S rule. Too strict with working conditions and making employees feel uncomfortable. Company pulls strong to Micro Managin.
Pros
Cafeteria
Cons
short breaks

Work life balance and culture
Remote Operations Team Lead (Former Employee) –  Midland, TXOctober 14, 2018
Coworkers were great but work live balance was non existent and culture was sub par. I worked in the drilling department and they were constantly understaffed and was pressuring people to go back into the field.

Bad management
Equipment Operator (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXOctober 12, 2018
Horrible service and without advancement for the future. Poor management growth. The management lacks initiative to accommodate criticism and treat some of their clients with utmost disrespect. They are leaving on the past glory. The per diem is the lowest in the Oil and Gas industry. They need to go back to the drawing board and get their act together.
Pros
Dental
Cons
Low culture

Great place to work and great pay
electronic technician (Former Employee) –  Midland, TXOctober 11, 2018
I have worked for Schlumberger twice in my life. The first time was with a subsidiary called Pathfinder. It was a comfortable place to work with great pay. Everyone got along with each other and management was awesome, along with great benefits. The second time I worked for Schlumberger, it was a contract position in Midland, TX. Again, the co-workers were great to work with. However, the management was horrible, always low moral meetings, etc. Lay-offs are common for this company when the work gets slow.
Pros
great pay and benifits
Cons
poor management and low morale

Good for Career, horrible for work/life balance
Completion Field Specialist (Current Employee) –  St. Johns, NLOctober 11, 2018
To get vacation approved is a headache, constant training and bull you need to do. Decent money but other work groups are paid more offshore. More gets taken away with time and never brought back. They try and brainwash you with the SLB way of work.

Travel is typically a plus

Hard work but worth it
Equipment Operator (Former Employee) –  Williston, NDOctober 10, 2018
The work was hard due to being exposed to the different weather. But the company and everything it has to offer is amazing. I believe the hard work and ruff weather conditions are worth it.

Great Job
Equipment Operator (Current Employee) –  West, TXOctober 10, 2018
It’s just like any other oil and gas company. The pay is okay can be better. The people are fun and great to work with but at time later the job can become draining and stressful especially if you’re from out of town
