A good working place with a good chance for career advancement
Field Engineer (Seismic/Positioning Engineer) (Current Employee), Basra, IraqSeptember 24, 2013
I work in Schlumberger on a rotation job assigned in Basra, Iraq. A typical day at work is to plan the daily production for the GPS operators and supervise them in the site.after completing the plan the data will be downloaded to be analyzed.
At the company you learn to be initiative and a team player. There is a fixed step training for the employee; – more... a combination of on job training, online training and classes. Co-workers are very friendly and the management team is very supportive. The enjoyable part of the job is to meet different people and face the terrain challenges. – less

Terrible unless you are an engineer
Wireline Operator (Former Employee), Nisku, ABJune 6, 2013
Pros: good pay in busy winter months (3 months per year)
Cons: no respect given to anyone other than engineers
Worked there for 2 years as a Wire line Operator. No chance of advancement unless you were an Engineer. Engineers that would screw up or injure themselves would be promoted while there was no room for advancement for operators.

Always worked with rookie Engineers that would have no clue in their job but were too "smart" to listen to anyone that was – more... not an Engineer.

Had to fight to receive bonuses that were earned on jobs. – less

Rig Site experience
Field Engineer Intern (Former Employee), KuwaitMay 25, 2013
Life at Schlumberger is all about how you can adjust yourself with different locations required for different jobs. My internship experience was less of a rig site experience but came to know of the overall functioning of an oil and gas services company. The technology provided to the employees is hi-tech and innovation and to work not only requires – more... intellect but also rigorous hard work in office and on site. – less

Awesome management they will find a fit for your level of experience and expand on it if you are willing to put in the effort

Although there seems to be a high turnover rAte even those that are here for a short period of time show great – more... potential I think due to Schlumberger training
Great programs for employee development!
Opportunity to travel the world if so desired
Write your own paycheck. At least in my department (work as much overtime as you want or as little as you want as you desire! Absolutely in heard of.
Continual improvement ( within reason of course)
Company is a bit cheAp with resources but pays people well
Tools and equipment is not shiny but the people realy do shine!!
Concerns with work always seem to be dealt with in a speedy and effective manner. No beating around the bush and no hidden agendas. Management is always willing to listen. I think this is because management is developed from a grassroots level
I have thought of leaving but quite honestly I dont think there is much or any better out there – less
