In my case there has been no career progression for a long time so now I'm considering leaving. I tried but I didn’t achieve anything significant here and I don’t believe the problem was in me anymore. Honestly, how much were you able to grow a... — read more
Is the reason for lack of innovation really a ridiculous bonus system like someone said? Or should the reasons for lack of innovation be sought elsewhere? I would like this to be a much more innovative company than it is.
I don't like what the current management has turned this company into. In my opinion, Schlumberger could have been a much better place, if only there were some other people in the top positions who would know how to use both the potential of the... — read more
I recently left SLB. They magically had a 10% increase as an offer for me to stay. I had a good laugh Is it possible that this happened? Is this a joke? I can’t believe they’re trying to keep anyone. My colleague was the kind of employee many... — read more

What happened to vaccination disclosure. Has the VP HSE got fired yet
To some extent I understand all those yes man who do exactly what they’re told and who don’t think for themselves, because here it seems impossible to achieve anything if you’re not one of those irritating people. How many times a week do you get... — read more
OLP has been CEO for 2 years marks out of ten? He arrived supporting the transformation and NWW, digital SAP etc…. Did he deliver the above or drop? Job security is low. Meeting expectations (5/10) far from outstanding!
Who’s buying Torxen the Palliser project….SLBs little production project in(ALBERTA)?
I haven’t gotten a raise so far, even though I’ve been here a long time and I was hoping to get one. In the meantime, I started getting more and more work. I'm not complaining, I love my job and for now I'm still satisfied, but I think that in... — read more
Look, I'm one of the dinosaurs, when I joined Schlumberger had the reputation of the highest paying and most demanding company out there. There was competition to join, SLB hired only the best and paid the best. A long time later - OFS formed... — read more
People! Now, when someone is laid off, terminated or let go for any reason, those of you left behind should really learn to keep a tight lip on your speculative inputs. For one, it’s childish. Often too many times before a person has been let go... — read more
Very little information passed on regarding this, probably because the vast majority are not entitled to it. Anyone knows any different please comment.
Latest rumours are that are facing such a strong backlash Schlumberger has cancelled the vaccine disclosure plan
Arrogant HSE team thinks that people look up to them to know when will pandemic end
Listening a HSE talk to promote vaccines. The guy talking was like a Guru with his sect . "The world needs us ... we provide energy" ... WTF, nobody needs SLB ... the world needs good companies ... Not a company with toxic managers which believe they... — read more
Innovations, where have they gone? There is a critical lack of good innovation at SLB, without which no company can thrive. What is the problem, why are there no good innovations? It seems to me that our leaders do not understand the consequences of... — read more
Since I know a few of them whose primary reason for leaving this company is the care about climate change and Earth, I wonder how many more people have left this company just for that reason? The ones I know personally, agreed to a lower pay but... — read more
With last days remaining for battery plant in Stonehouse what is the final number of job losses to China?
have an offer, those of you who are now elsewhere, do you regret leaving?
I worked 9 years in SLB, left and went into finance. Although it's been quite some time, I just have to say I wish I had left way earlier. After touching base recently with few friends that are still in the company and in management positions, all I... — read more
Have you ever wondered why SLB has disabled comments on LinkedIn Posts? Who gave this brilliant idea ( probably some of those over qualified fit-for-nothing Phds) to SLB to post on a Social Media platform but disable engagements? This is the irony... — read more
I worked many extra hours for nothing because it was important to me to keep this job for a while longer. Work-life balance in my case did not exist for months and I was brought to a complete burnout. Schlumberger makes the most of this fear of... — read more
complete lack of transparency in everything we do. payrise, battery production, people moves, flexible working, manufacturing Yes, that's Schlumberger's way and I no longer intend to work for a company that is so little transparent. I don’t know... — read more
How many folks still work at this plant? So many local companies are hiring with great salaries. Bet there will be defectors…….. Au revoir.
high potential people have given their notice to leave schlumberger. poor management structure with no turnover at local senior management levels. incompetent people and expats running the show on paper and nothing happening on the ground. fake... — read more
From my perspective, there is a lot of redundant management here. Still, can large companies like SLB be organized without so many managers? To what extent would a company be more efficient without “unnecessary” multiple management layers?
I left over a year ago and the biggest regret I have is NOT doing deeper research into the company I accepted a position with. Everything looked great on paper, but the reality was not at all what I had expected it to be. I know some will call me an... — read more

How many times have you heard that there is two types of payrise and we are running world's longest running market research survey and will then do world's longest running analysis before making a decision. By the time we are in a position to make a... — read more
Unfortunately, I absolutely do not believe that the leaders of this company have any vision and plan for Schlumberger. The strategic direction is rather vague and it looks like those at the top have completely lost their compass. Companies that lack... — read more
What is latest with battery plant at Stonehouse. The other thread has been taken over by historians
For those still work big blue; what are your thoughts on people week, what did it achieve, was it well organized
Before I came here I worked at several big companies and nowhere was I under greater micromanagement than here. I really don't know why all this micromanagement is needed. Isn't it better to use that energy for some other, more constructive things... — read more
I'm just wondering, if some of the best experts came with the greatest will to fix this company, where would they start? There are so many problems piled up here, that it would take them a lot of time to get Schlumberger in order, if at all... — read more
Isn't that the saddest and most obscene argument ever, that the situation is such that many should be happy to have a job at all?
Every single one of us is seen as replaceable by the management. They don't care what we bring to the table, they don't care how much institutional knowledge we might have, all they care about is if they can find somebody cheaper to do our job... — read more
