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.
No time off
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
Benefits, nice coworkers, vacation
No stability, back stabbing, lying management
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
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.
The company has a majority of the old patents given them advantages
Contracts are not support despite lower corporate taxation

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.
Well run company very lean
You will be worked to death, and forget your family and friends.
Very, very poor management. Overload of work to do, low pay for what needs to be done. The worth part are the managers, you need to be liked in order to move forward.
Many great people to work with
Worth Company to work for
You either have a really good manager or a terrible one. The yearly review system if you have a bad manager can get you laid off during a down turn. Comp is low per hour but you get a lot of hours to make a decent paycheck.

Jobs at Schlumberger
was an intern assuming a role of international logistics specialist in Dammam KSA, cooperative teammates and down to earth management. Didn't feel much pressure but that could be because I was still an intern.Overall would definitely work here again.
The old SLB concentrated on technology, R&D, good information sharing culture. Now many so call "technical managers" got promoted by knowing people, not their capability. Paper pushing company with budget cuts, less resources. They jumped into this digital revolution with very little ROI.
Schlumberger has a very diverse culture. You can find your co-workers from everywhere and most of them are super friendly. The working time is flexible in non-busy season.
working time flexibility
the longer you work for the company, the change you get promoted
I built my skills very quickly working according to work procedures to achieve the required results. SLB has a great safety program across so I felt safe working there. Team members were hardworking and willing to work with me and we helped each other build my competence.
Easy access to management
Job security is fair
Great company and benefits and safety culture is the best in the industry but management is brought in from different divisions or segments that often do not have experience in your particular job and tend to do a horrible job unless they are committed to their team.
Great training and easy access to training in all aspects of the industry
We show up to work and we still get a check! Work is not hard, but if your looking to grow then you will be stuck in the rut for sometime, depending on which dept. you work in. I can only speak for the Frac. We were hired on as contractors in hopes of moving over to Liberty with the merger. Things may get better in a few years from now but, we are lucky if they let us eat the scraps that fall from the masters table! Many people are unhappy here because of whats to come. I work with a great crew that gets things done. Our customers are always pleased with the job we turn out. We enjoy working together to get it done, but the noise that comes from the top will turn you south!
one week off and great coworkers
no raises, no vacation, no company benefits, added work loads
