Many years experience from High Arctic work on the Beaufort Sea to helping out with US folks in Wyoming and Pennsylvania. There is a lot of BS no different than other service companies which also brings very safe culture should you abide by the rules

Management Accountant -Completions NAL (Former Employee) –  Houston11 April 2018
Huge well oiled machine (pardon the pun), but a soulless organization. You are a faceless number among hundreds of thousands. While working there you gain good experience, but expect no loyalty from the company you serve.
Pros
Good Salary
Cons
No Job Seccurity

Maintenance (Former Employee) –  Canada19 March 2018
Amazing company! Very vertical and hierarchical structure. A lot of very good people, however not a culture focussed on building cohesive and cooperative teams, relying instead on smart individuals and a lot of hard work to achieve goals.....the opposite of "work smart, not hard".

money was great
Wireline Operator (Former Employee) –  Mount Pearl, NL28 February 2018
overall i enjoyed working at schlumberger, but as with every large corporation time is money, money is time, and the employee in a number. There was very little time to spend with family, as things were so busy on days off you would be asked to come in after hours to work.

Very Dynamic,fast paced and a sharp learning curve
Field Engineer (Former Employee) –  Pakistan12 February 2018
Schlumberger is a Fortune 500 company ( 118th) with a very multi ethnic and multi cultural environment. They place great focus on the development of their employees with continuous on job training's as well as regular training's in their established schools worldwide. It is a very demanding job in terms of focus,time and energy due to the nature of the oil and gas services industry. Our clients are fast paced hence the servicing end has to be even faster.

Work involves being in the remotest and harshest of environments, the ideal environment to test and identify the true caliber of any professional. The monetary and other associated benefits are definitely very well structured. A career at Schlumberger will test limits of their employees efficiency,dedication,skills and resolve on a daily basis.

Working at Schlumberger has been an honor and it has allowed me to equip myself as a better professional with more insight into various aspects of the Oil and gas + Environmental industry.

Since being bought out, the culture drastically changed not very good for the acquired staff. One did not know when they will be resized or realigned. Communication was not very good. Not sure as it may have changed.

Logistics Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB22 November 2017
I was bullied by another employee the whole time I worked there and nothing was ever done about it. This same employee harassed everyone in the group. So long as you their bidding then no problem but the second you say no then the harassment starts.

Management did absolutely nothing to stop it.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Very long hours
