Fast pace environment with high standards along with a culture of QHSE. Strong safety skills taught regularly along with on the job training . All operations of machines were taught with mentoring and assessment accordingly.
Working at Schlumberguer is a really good experience for everyone who wants to challenge themselves, you have to be ready to solving problems in an unexpected situations, and create new process in order to improve the efficiency of the department.
your opinions as employees are heard and discussed.
Likewise the company is looking after the employees all the time since they know there is a high lever of stress and everything has to be done on a safety way.
A career with multiple possibilities of advancing and learning about directional drilling technologies. Possibility to move or travel on different locations around the world. High peak season with many over time hours followed by a low activity season. Workplace culture focused on safety and service quality.
Management is constantly changing. No consistency in expectations. More people looking over your shoulder than actually doing the work. Little tech support, just figure it out. Pay and benefits are pretty good but little job security. They will change direction often and you are expendable.
If not for the economic downturn in the Oil & gas industry Schlumberger is one of the top players in the industry. The organization is very much invested in the wellbeing and safety culture of its work force.
From the get go, new employees are given extensive training in their designated fields. You are taught most skills you will need for the job. When you are considered competent and can run a job, responsibilities came very quickly.
With hard work and discipline, Schlumberger can allow for advancement and growth. My time with Schlumberger provided me a great career, although the work life balance is difficult on a rotation schedule, one is able to make it work.
This was essentially a great company to work for, the culture and diversity was what kept everything alive.
I feel the outlook and management has been less people oriented in the last 5 years and they need to go back to this focus.
Overall was a very good experience a fun place to work.15 days on 6 days off I recommend it for everyone I would still be there if it wasnt for the liberals.who gav these guys a second term they totally are destroying good people from makin money
