    Pros

    Interesting Work - Loved the job
    Excellent trining program

    Cons

    Loved the work I was doing; but a miserable job experience. The corporate culture mimics the Egyptian slave labor system used for building the pyramids- work you till you drop, unhook your body, and hook up a fresh worker. Poor life balance- their corporate literature is great, but the reality does not resemble the ideals Schlumberger has on paper. Overwhelming work load, with no overtime allowed, forces you to "work off the books" with unbilled overtime. Many employees are no longer acruing vacation time, because they are maxed out, yet the work load won't permit time off. Great health benefits, but if you want to keep up with the workload, no time for doctor's appointments. Their literature repeatedly stresses the importance of health and life balance, but it's just not possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make the corporate values espoused in your handbooks a reality.
