Schlumberger Employee Review
stressful and Hectic but well paying
Field engineer was a hectic job, long hours of no slep, so many responsibilities, you are kinda the jack of all trades, but i learned a lot on how to adapt, hard work and deal with silly clients. management is OK, sometimes cooperative, sometimes they gave me hard time, the workplace culture is harsh and you are expected to be a very hard worker but its multicultural, and this was the fun part of it. the hardest part of the job was the long hours of no sleep and the stress during the operation. the most enjoyable part was the training courses where they most of the time send you abroad where you have a lot of fun.
Ratings by category
- Very nice working environment, team work, multinational and multicultural ambiance. - Oilfield service type of work, where you get to work with a variety of oilfield operators with different mentality, problems to solve and challenges. - The vast exposure of operations you experience teach you a lot, and in a short time you become an expert at your job. - Strong technical training and development programs - However, strongly dependent on the market status. - Job functions might overlap with others, which leads to increased specialization and reduced professional responsibilities.
