    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Schlumberger full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great culture, work flexibility, bonus, benefits. Fabulous colleagues. Many things to learn domain wise. Great career opportunities if you are in management, like moving around the world and are very flexible in attitude.

    Cons

    The promotion system is really broken and pushes people to focus on non-productive activities. Very hard to get a grade increase, which is the only way to get a pay rise. They like to move people from one job to another which means you manager might be a manager or an ex-sales person. You can have great programmers in your team or the odd ex-field engineer who doesn't understand coding. Strange choice of tehnologies based on dubious arguments such as "Google is just across the road". No carrier opportunities if you "just do your work", even if you "exceed expectations" every year.

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

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits if you are on International Mobile contract.

    Cons

    1. No respect for regular employees and junior managers from Senior Leadership. 2. No support to employees from HR. Most of HR managers are incompetent, disrespect employees, covering up policy violations. HR is your enemy in this company. 3. Office politics are taken to the next level. Some nationalities are forming cliques and favour their own. 4. In order to get promoted you need to forget your dignity and kiss your bosses backside all day long. 5. Lack of general organizarion. Everyone ia lost. Middle management is expected to deliver without proper authority and support.
