    I worked at Schlumberger full-time

    Pros

    Working at SLB was a great experience with many positives. The possibility of working all over the world in very tough and challenging environments, working with very diverse and smart people, a lot of autonomy and responsibility early in career and good career development opportunities.

    Cons

    Shift in attitude and culture over recent years along with ongoing industry downturn has impacted the people aspect of the business. Not treated as a human being but only as a body that can be moved about. HSE has become a second priority over cost-cutting measures and fatigue has become a real problem as less and less people are overworked.
