Demanding and challenging, but can be rewarding
General Field Engineer - Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk (Current Employee), Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Russian FederationAugust 28, 2014
Pros: opportunity, technology, people
Cons: work schedule, compensation
With Schlumberger, I have been able to see many places and things that I would have otherwise never experienced. For the most part, it has been a positive experience. I like that management comes from the bottom up, so my managers have been through the same path, more or less, that we all have. I have learned a great deal about the oil and gas business – more... and how to manage equipment and people in a fast paced work environment. There is no typical day at work in the oil field, so learning to become very flexible has been key. The people I have worked with, for the most part, have been a very positive influence as Schlumberger tends to "weed-out" the unmotivated. The hardest part of the job is the time away from home with no definite schedule. I am married now with a family and the schedule is now more important. This is what takes away from the most enjoyable part of the job which is going and experiencing new challenges. Overall, my time here with SLB has been the best I have ever experienced, so far... – less

Everyday at Schlumberger was different. In formation and the tool to complete the mission we not give on a daily basis. Workers had to figure things out for them selves with the least bit of training.

Pros: great benefits, plenty of hours

Reservoir Engineering Intern (Former Employee), Houston, TXAugust 19, 2014
- A typical day at work is very hectic and includes analysis and interpretation of data
- Through this job, I learnt the art of managing time and also to work overtime f need be to meet the objectives and requirements of projects.
- The management supports you in all ways possible to get the best out of you
- Co-workers are very amicable and approachable. – more... They are great sources of knowledge and wisdom and always spare an ear for what you have.
- Hardest part is data acquisition and quality control.
- The most enjoyable part would be the satisfaction of completing the projects within stipulated time and learning volumes about something outside your comfort zone. – less

decent company to start off working with, paid on a salary and bonus type pay which means you make money if there are lots of jobs lined up, but if contracts dry up so does your pay. Great place to gain experience.

Multiclient Assistant Accountant for Europe (Former Employee), GatwickAugust 11, 2014
Pros: private healthcare and pension scheme
Cons: working long hours can sometimes be expected
I worked for Schlumberger for 11 years. I progressed from Departmental Secretary to Assistant Accountant which was a good career change for me and gave me a better understanding of the financial side of the Company. I enjoyed working at Schlumberger and only made the choice to leave as I was going on maternity leave with my second child and felt it – more... would be difficult to continue my career at that time.
There were also many good benefits with the Company; private healthcare, pension and opportunities to develop my skills, learn more and travel abroad. – less

Safety first
Line Boss (Current Employee), Von Ormy, TXAugust 7, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: no catering
Safety first is key. To go home just as you came to work. The typical day at work was good especially if your surrounded by good hard working people. The hours are long but that's what comes with any oil field job. Rigging up and down could be stressful but with team work and the motivation to get it done doesn't make it as bad. Once things are in place – more... and running its all up to you to maintain your equipment as best as you can. – less

The company is one of the biggest service provider in the oil & gas industry, it was a great honor working with Schlumberger
Operations Engineer / Supervisor (Current Employee), MalaysiaJuly 20, 2014
Pros: have the luxury to be with love ones more often
Cons: long working hours / longer hitch days than expected.
1) typical days - travelling to and from location with job completed successfully.
2) Learned to be more patient in dealing with co-workers in the field.
3) As we were only acquired by Schlumberger company; I would say we were under looked; some sort of discrimination.
4) Hardest part /experience on a job is working with someone who is bossy & pretentious – more... to know each & every aspect of the operation.
5) Most enjoyable part of the job is when the job is a success; sharing experience with other contractors or even different segment of the same company. Another enjoyable part of the job is when the management or Boss is fully supportive & discuss operation overview; pros & cons on the job, etc. – less
