    Current Employee - General Field Engineer in Ciudad del Carmen (Mexico)

    I have been working at Schlumberger full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good money for fresh outs. Benefits and medical insurance. Good training courses. Good place to gain and experience in the industry.

    Cons

    Mid level management is a mess. Work/life balance doesn't exist. Your work becomes your life. You basically sell yourself to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to stick to People Technology Profit motto. Cuz now it seems that people is the last thing you take carry of.

    Excellent, a great place to make a career. As a lifestyle I would be less optimistic.

    I worked at Schlumberger full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits. High profile jobs, tons of responsibility, little office work, working with cool mechanical and hi-tech tools. You are heavily in charge and you have tons of support, therefore you will always know what to do or else you have the confidence and resources to ask if you are in doubt. It is a very solid working place.

    Cons

    A successful personal life seems unlikely to happen. The company becomes 90% of your LIFE. Planning time off is not reliable. Your boss will need you at any time on any day, often very unexpectedly. You are most of the time moving to one city to another (which can be exciting) but that means you spend lots of time in places where you know no one and you and your colleagues will be in the same situation. You should add this to the fact that you will have little time off. The end result is that you will spend most weekends with the same people you work with.... in my case I had cool colleagues, but it's not always the case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    TAKE OUT the shitty instructors from the learning centers. Some of them are good, many are not. If you have people without motivation as instructors you are spoiling tons of fresh talent flowing into the company. You are literally wasting fortunes and other people's time by the absurd excuse of "yeeee we're so tough, others just don't make it"
