Well Cement Stimulation Specialist (Current Employee), Midland, TX – September 20, 2013
Good place for a job - NOT A CAREER. I worked for the company as a Temp contractor. Was too good, better than actual employees. The environment was constantly rigged with workplace politics, petty behaviors. Had degrees while supervisors and managers had high school diplomas - NOT A GREAT SETTING for me. Almost every second and third employee had a – more... high school level education. Good for Schlumberger, pay less, overwork people and let them go. That's what it comes to. If you work for them, keep looking for jobs or real careers. – less
