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

Hate it.
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.
