    I have been working at Schlumberger full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    initial training was good
    potential to make good money

    Cons

    working constant rotation of 3 weeks at offshore rig/ 1 week at home/office
    Days at office are considered as "off days"
    Too much to learn too quickly
    thrown in at deep end
    Clients at rigsite take out hatred for schlumberger on you.
    All other service hands hate you
    Redicoulus nanny culture
    The hardest part of the job is the self imposed "schlumbeger way of doing it"
    Redicoulous amount of paperwork
    If your a specialist be ready to do same job as the guy next to you for half the money

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sort out the rotations!!!! people cant work these rediculous schedules you give them!! this is why everyone leaves and your shorthanded and give the next generation worse schedules so they too will in turn leave!! break the cycle.

    I have been working at Schlumberger full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good experience builder. Good Training program. Good Gender and Cultural Diversity. Lots of travel. Merit matters. Work with very smart people making you smarter.

    Cons

    Bad for stable family life. Too many Transfers. Some bad Managers are allowed to sneak up the ladder, and they are then difficult to get rid of later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Weed out bad Managers early before they get too high up the ladder. Young employees want better compensation, they really do not care about deferred benefits. Comp and Ben should be flexible to retain such employees.
