        Pros

        * Great international experience * A truly multicultural company * High perception from clients compared to other competitors * A steep learning curve

        Cons

        * Authoritarian leadership style permeating down directly from the CEO. * There is no focus on clients. * Ego and KPI-driven results, there is no true collaboration across business units or even between peers. * Tick-the-box culture, managed by spreadsheets and powerpoints. * Majority of the employees are demotivated and disengaged,

        Advice to Management

        * Replace the CEO * Put the focus in the client * Truly focus on employee engagement

        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.
