Terrible and Does not care about employees
Equipment operator (Current Employee), North Slope, AlaskaJune 12, 2014
Pros: the food is good
Cons: no job security.
I have worked for Schlumberger for almost three years and have never felt secure with the company. People come and people go, some by choice and some with no notice are sent home and never return. The company will keep you on during the busy season and let you go during the slow season. You can be replaced and they do not value you as an employee. My – more... pay was cut in half and then they back dated my pay cut, so my paycheck was not enough to pay my cable bill for one pay period. I was expecting $1800 and my check was just over $300. My bills could not be paid!! I do not recommend this place to anyone!! They mess with you and there is no job security! My finances may never recover from what they have done. I can't make my car payments for the month and will be borrowing from my 401k to pay bills. Think twice before accepting a position. They make it sound as if they care about you but they don't. I had to give every category a one star because there was nothing less......I would give it maybe a 1/4 star. – less

Schlumberger is a great paying company, and the people are pretty good to work with. If you have a family and enjoy spending time with them this is not the job for you. You are constantly away from home.

Very comfortable working environment
Electronic Technician (Current Employee), Weston, WV & Victoria, TXMay 22, 2014
Pros: freedom at work with very little supervision
Cons: poor progression and development as an electronic techinician
As an electronic technician the working hours is basically 40 hours a week. There is overtime from time to time. Overtime pay is 50% more the regular hourly rate. Working environment is quite comfortable. There was very little supervision. Because of small shop and operation was oriented on job demand, working hour was not strict. Managers are easy – more... to approach and communicate. There is reasonable progression rate however it also depends on your location and personal drive. Many electronic technicians are very comfortable stay at same position for 20 to 35 years with Schlumberger. It is a very stable working environment and the work is very easy to get used to, however there were quite few times the company laid off all employee in US locations due to the shrinking market in US. – less
