SLB was a great place to work my four years there. Management was tough on us at times, but we knew there were KPIs to meet and had to be done. Great people working at several different locations and they come from all walks of life/countries/religions/etc.

I have had many managers through my time at Schlumberger, and all were very supportive. The culture is overall very good, its challenging but rewarding company, and you feel your contributions make an impact. Top safety training programs. The hardest part of job is tight deadlines, and reacting to changes or remedial work, or service quality incident. Most enjoyable part of job was career advancement, development, people, and travel.
Pros
International Benefits are amazing
Cons
Challenging, subject to cycles and activity

Good place to work if you like testing downhole tools . You have to be very patient because you are in a control room looking at a screen testing equipment using a computer all day long.

It’s a large oil field service provider that doesn’t care about you as a person, only see you as a cog in the machine and will dump you the first sign of trouble unless you’re a minority or have something on somebody. I wouldn’t go back there for twice the pay.
Pros
Some okay training provided
Cons
No work/life balance. Forget about it. Terrible management.

If you work hard and put in the effort, eventually it will pay off. Depending on local supervisors or managers you can live up into getter paying positions. Some if the managers and supervisors are real jerks and will hold good workers back to make them look good by taking credit for your hard work.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
No breaks, long hours, no recognition.

Overall its a good company to work for. they have excellent benefits good pay, good training. you'll learn a lot from the people you work with and they will become family. if you work hard and become a valuable employee you can go far in the company. but downside they have a lot of layoffs when it gets slow. if you make it trough that your golden just don't get lazy.
Pros
pay, great employees to learn from and work with
Cons

Enjoyed working with the crew I was assigned to. Management was fair. Training was top notch. Benefits were really good and pay was decent. It's oil, so the roller coaster of employment is there as well.

You need to show hard work to move up which is understandable. You will have support from management which is great . They always place you at nice hotels and sometimes man camps where they provide meals.
Pros
Good pay and benefits
Cons
Always on the road

It’s a really big company, decent benefits but make sure you are happy with what they are paying you when you get hired on because you don’t get a raise every year. Management will try to find every reason they can not to give you one. They do lay offs when it gets slow and no one is safe except there chosen favorites
Pros
Benefits, nice coworkers, vacation
Cons
No stability, back stabbing, lying management

It’s an oilfield service company. 12+ hours a day for 2-3 weeks at a time. Tons of overtime. They do a lot of employee retention type stuff, I.e. free hats, tshirts, catered lunches all the time. Decent benefits. Like I said, you know what your getting into.
Pros
Money
Cons
No time off

There were employees and supervisors from Canada that didn’t like the production and how we did things they separated the supervisors from midland yard and scattered us out to different departments and enforced their way of doing things and it went downhill from there. It was good while it lasted
Pros
Outstanding workplace
Cons
Political views.

A display of strong emotional management for show by time managing people to death, insulting people’s integrity and communication skills. Insulting instead of training and ridiculing. Not an open and secure environment to work in. Zero compassion on people's abilities or any hope for team work for given task.
Pros
The company has a majority of the old patents given them advantages
Cons
Contracts are not support despite lower corporate taxation

Good training ground, great people. It's a huge corporation so there are many options in a downturn. The coil tubing division was closed down, I was transferred to cement.
Pros
Great people to work with and learn from.
Cons
Work life balance.

I worked at this company for 9 years, the quality of life completely depends on the labor laws of your country that you are working in. If that country has good labor laws like the EU or Japan/koria its not a bad place to work because Schlumberger is so efficient it will find the first opportunity to lay people off and have the remaining people work harder. I was unfortunate to hire on in the U.S. Oklahoma with no labor laws so your job is always in jepordy.
Pros
Well run company very lean
Cons
You will be worked to death, and forget your family and friends.
