I am an active person, i am an independent supervisor who is ready to learn any new technologies. I make my work place a fun place for me and others.
SUPERVISOR (Former Employee), Nigeria and Chad.March 25, 2014
Pros: training and new technology
Cons: time for self
. A day at work : I ensure to make a maximum use of my day at work and to make it profitable in managing my task per day.
. Every day of our life we learn a new thing either from our colleagues in the office or in the internet or on the job as we work by the day.
. Management skill is part of my day to day life as time wasted is hard to recover, so – more... time management and resources management are paramount to me.
.My co-workers are like a family I have at each point you are with them, so I live a life of team work with my co-workers.
. The hardest part of the job is when there's a challenge to achieve a goal and you can not get support from people around you, and client is not happy.
. The most enjoyable part of the job is when we work as a team to put a smile on the faces of our client, then we all will be happy.
When the client is happy we enjoy but when they are not happy with our job we can not enjoy. So we enjoy our self when there's excellent in our job execution. – less

High-end, innovative company that pays well but treats its employees horribly.
MECHANICAL ENGINEER (Former Employee), Sugar Land, TXMarch 23, 2014
Pros: technically interesting work, innovative, good pay, useful training
Cons: high chance of being laid off, employees treated badly, lots of useless training, sleazy, reckless, negligent
I did some interesting product development work for several months before being laid off without cause. That is the problem with this company: they treat their employees badly. They hire thousands of people and then quickly layoff thousands of people. They make you take lots of useless training classes about safety even though the company's field practices – more... are dangerous. That said, I did learn a lot about the oilfield services industry and Schlumberger creates some very innovative technology. I also took some useful technical training courses. – less

Development Technician III (Former Employee), Houston, TXMarch 14, 2014
Schlumberger is a great company that seeks people eager to learn and will train them. The company is adamant about training being a top priority along with safety. The only negative thing about the company is the compensation, however this was twenty years ago and I can't speak to the current situation.

General Work Enviorment
Operations Support Engineer (Former Employee), Houston, TXMarch 6, 2014
Pros: education, advancement, pay, benifits
Cons: not much time for a life outside work
All depends where you work, field work, some positions require months away from family even in domestic locations while others are a daily attendance, office life was a little more mellow. Although everything runs at a 24 hour pace and they expect you to contribute 110% while at work. Co-workers make the job, and seems everyone has a pretty positive – more... attitude and proactive spirit. Education through the company constantly improving and is next to none, probably equal to or better than a college education. – less

Extremely challenging job that you learn a lot from
Equipment Supervisor (Former Employee), Laredo, TXMarch 4, 2014
I would get up at 3:00 am/pm depending if I worked morning or night. I would work for about 12-15 hours a day for 6 days straight and then rest for 3 days. I was in the outside so you could expect from extrem heat to rain to cold temperatures at night. That did not stop anyone including me. I would work heavy machinery and always learned more as time – more... passed. The hardest part was getting used to the life style of the oil fields. I spent alot of time outside of laredo and had to adjust to waking up at diffrent times during the day or night. – less

Pros: compensation, profit sharing, coworkers
Cons: ignorance, health care, favoritism
The compensation and coworkers are really the only true benefit of the job. After spending the past two years living out of gas stations and hotels, without a home life it was time to move on.
