    Pros

    Always looking to keep leading and inventing the future of O&G service industry. Provides strong development opportunities with very diverse exposure. Overall great people to work with!

    Cons

    Some of the core values of what made the Company a great place to work have been losing importance to some of the Management Team. This is hopefully reverting in the near future

    Advice to Management

    People is the first value of the Company and it must be put back in the top of the priorities.

    I have been working at Schlumberger full-time

    Pros

    A company which is operating in pretty much all the countries of the world, it provides a wide range of opportunities and positions. It's possible to jump between functions & countries. Very interesting and strongly motivated employees. Salary is very competitive though and lots of support between the different stakeholders.

    Cons

    Work - Life Balance. Long hours tend to be the norm, especially when you are tied to the operational business (drilling for example), where you are expected to be on-call all the time (day and night). Working for a service company, the client is the king and often might not take your advise or treat you as 2nd class citizen. Difficult to handle for some, an opportunity to grow for others.

    Advice to Management

    Engagement, engagement, engagement. This is definitely lacking, within a company of 120 thousand employees. Teambuilding, engagement of employees, showing interest, performing good performance appraisals are just a few tips.
