    I worked at Schlumberger full-time

    Pros

    Schlumberger is a knowledge leader in several domains and it's a great company to start after finishing university. Lots of travel, mixed nationalities and knowledgeable people, a blue culture which makes you strong from many points of view. Worked with some of the most intelligent and interesting people that I've met so far.

    Cons

    However, the business model is leaned towards money, not people and I wouldn't recommend their management system culture or approach. Most of the employees feel just a number and with time, employees are gaining experience and become expensive. Once they secured new graduates, Schlumberger won't hesitate to get rid of them immediately. I've heard often how they have fired 15-20 years employees without any help or compensation, so practically in the middle of their career. No work-life balance in the field and once you're outside the blue bubble, you realize how many rights they have been abusing, through a culture of lying, hidden decisions, and fake promises.
