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.

    Pros

    Very multi cultural, does not matter what accent you have, what back ground you have. You have every opportunity to shape your own future

    Cons

    Getting extremely paperwork trail driven. for every mistake being made a new procedure needs to be written

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't kill everything one does (wrong) with a procedure, experience should be given an chance. Definitely keep promoting the opportunities no matter where you come from
