    I worked at Schlumberger full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great training, well established program to teach you the industry and especially your segment. Solid benefits, Some amazing hard working people, I was lucky to have a good, understanding FSM (manager) but heard horror stories about all others. If you're a female, and can withstand the rig culture, you have an edge over male employees. The company likes to please the female engineers as they are rare.... Unfortunately it ends there...

    Cons

    Hostile and unprofessional work environment, High turnover of engineers, Stressful, physically demanding (knew this going in, but it took its toll much faster than I expected) Salary and bonus on continuous decline, and not great to begin with either! Cover your own butt and blame others/point the finger type of culture, The company has strong safety policies but they are ignored after training, came close... to shattering my knee and breaking an ankle in only 2 months.

    Advice to Management

    Clearly separate the tasks of engineers and operators, even if the engineers are responsible for everything. Help engineers with logistics or hire people to help instead of piling every imaginable task on the engineer. Instead of blaming the "oil and gas culture", make an effort to better the work environment.
