I worked at Schlumberger full-time

Pros

It is a great place to work in if you like the oil industry. They had a really friendly employees and people are willing to help.

Cons

You have to be able to handle being a field engineer. If you are okay with living in hotels (most of the time), and your life being the field (people and work) then this is the place for you or else.....

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give the option to some potential hires of being in the field/facility for a week or so before starting work to see if they like it.

    I have been working at Schlumberger full-time

    Pros

    There are good opportunities to be a real global person/employee in this company. You can be anywhere in the world any time.

    Cons

    What they do in kuala lumpur financial hub is definitely called discrimination. %100 SAME job description, %100 SAME job title, every thing done is same, location is same, even the grade is same, but but but they create a line in salary that is COMPLETELY DEPENDENT ON YOUR PASSPORT. Yes passport, even not on where you were last working, or you where you were previously.. JUST YOUR PASPPORT. So even though everything else is completely but completely same, your colleague can earn even double or more compared to you just because of his/her passport. Even because of passport/nationality he/she can earn more than his/her manager. This is everywhere in the world called DISCRIMINATION.

    I even don't talk about all the details about how Kuala Lumpur financial is UNprofessional. I have to write a book on this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make the management of Kuala Lumpur financial hub more professional. It is really a high school. Not more. KLfinancial hub also needs to be a real professional company, not a kindergarten.
