PROCUREMENT ADMINISTRATOR (Former Employee) –  Red Deer County, AB11 August 2017
Decent Company, working with some great people. Plenty of training resources available, and lots of advancement opportunities.

The volatility of the market creates lots of uncertainty for the future, and unfortunately affects many aspects of the work/life balance, often requiring long hours and working from home just to get the job done.
Pros
Excellent training resources
Cons
Long hours, Volatile Market

Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Whitecourt, AB27 July 2017
Schlumberger provides great benefits along with above average pay.
The downside is the difficulty having a home life with a young family. Always travelling but you get to see some very nice places and neat experiences.

Getting transfers overseas is exciting, in same time challenging where is to hard to settle and implement SLB culture where it is absent. It is also hard when we are limited with ressources.

Equipment Operator 3 (Former Employee) –  Red Deer, AB19 June 2017
As a big company Schlumberger has many benefits but also a few drawbacks. The movement of its managers in theory is good but in practicality can cause upheaval and chaos. In the time of working there employees were treated well and enjoyed their jobs, however that had not always been the case. Just part of being a number in the big machine

A very good place to fast track your career
Well/Drilling Engineer (Former Employee) –  Malaysia10 May 2017
Schlumberger is a very good place to fast track your career especially for fresh outs. Schlumberger's diversity is one of prime strengths along with its technologies in Oil and Gas.
I had great joy working at Schlumberger with one job title but too many roles facing challenges almost all the time. The biggest challenge that could be faced is to have a decent work life balance while moving from a job to an other and from a country to an other.
Pros
Diversity, Competitive compensation, Supportive management continuos learning environment.
Cons
Work Life balance, abundant procedures and paper work in place for the simplest tasks

Well Testing Operator (Former Employee) –  Grande Prairie, AB5 May 2017
Never ending computer courses that you need for advancement. Promotion of rats and bag lickers. If you just want a job and don't want to put up with attempted brainwashing don't bother with them.
