I have been working at Schlumberger full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Training, Career plan, great team to work with, international workforce.

Cons

Promotion is based mostly in what you pretend you can do rather than what you can actually do... I’ve seen employees going up the ladder very quickly without any solid technical skills.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Include tech assessment to promote field personnel, a good power point presentation is not enough to assess the employee technical competency.

    I have been working at Schlumberger full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very good company, billions of opportunities, exciting environment, REALLY-multi-cultural... EXCELLENT feddback overall.
    We have no time to get bored, always something coming up...
    Also exellent mobility for who wish it.
    If you are passionate, this is the company to be in !

    Cons

    Sometimes more demanding than I have ever seen... 6 weeks in a row 7 days a week is my worst experience... but you forget it quickly when time shows you did good!
    Apart from that, there is not much to put in cons honestly: work hard, you will see the benefit. But when I mean "work hard" you can simply read the first sentence of my comment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not much to tell... Maybe come with us a bit more often !
