Uncertain
Assistant (Former Employee) –  AB12 December 2017
Since being bought out, the culture drastically changed not very good for the acquired staff. One did not know when they will be resized or realigned. Communication was not very good. Not sure as it may have changed.

Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB22 November 2017
I was bullied by another employee the whole time I worked there and nothing was ever done about it. This same employee harassed everyone in the group. So long as you their bidding then no problem but the second you say no then the harassment starts.

Management did absolutely nothing to stop it.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Very long hours

Field Engineer Trainee (Coiled Tubing) (Former Employee) –  Pakistan19 November 2017
Schlumberger is a great oilfield service company that has been long established and is the market leader. Although, work-life balance can get tough since the nature of the job requires you to be on-call, it is nonetheless a great company to grow in.

A job day
Completions Technical Sales Engineer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB30 October 2017
My day starts with checking emails and arrange my to do list and start doing out for meetings with clients. either for coffee or lunches. Then, come back to work on the proposals for next day submission. During the meeting, I get more info about an integrated work with other product line where I can feedback my management for actions. I believe is the hardest part of the job is how to line up meeting and get the client accept my invitation for meeting. Workplace needs to be team work and this culture varies from team to another.

Senior Electronics Technician (Current Employee) –  St. John's, NL10 October 2017
Schlumberger provides a great opportunity to start your career and jump in feet first. They demand a lot, however, and in the recent downturn, have expected too much of those who are left. This culture will likely shift as the oil and gas market stabilizes.

Global big company with multi-culture
Cost Accountant (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB13 September 2017
learning is more about deep than broad in the accounting field. Lots of internal control in place, team work, and cooperation are very important. Cross training for supply chain, project management, currency hedging, international banking, inter company transaction and internal pricing, etc.
Pros
Global culture, cross field learning, safety is always number one, balanced life is highly valued.
Cons
some training not accounting related but essential in big corp

Field Completions Engineer (Former Employee) –  Aberdeen City24 August 2017
Some great people at the company where I was based, training was fantastic, second to none, however they take your pound of flesh to pay for it, and work life balance is almost non-existent for long spells, you do get well paid for the work it has to be said.

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.
