a verry good company
Cementing. Field Specialist 3 (Former Employee), ALGERIA , AfricaAugust 13, 2014
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.

Very highly skilled, bright and professional people. The level of stress could be quite high, though it worth it. The emphasis is for technology not for the gloss. Dynamic, serious place!

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

Not what you may have thought
Operations and Acquisition Specialist (Current Employee), Houston, TXJuly 10, 2014
This company has a lot of promises that it never can keep. The HR is the worst and the pay is pathetic to the amount of work that you really work. Job security is a no go and in all the company isn't a good company to work for. The only great thing about this company is the different people that you get the opportunity to work with.
