It has become so stressful to work here. Although I have many years of experience, I'm starting to feel like I don't know how to do my job properly at all. Let's have a sincere discussion about this: has meeting objectives become more difficult for... — read more
In fact, the most important thing is to work smart, not hard, that is, do the best you can without straining yourself too much, or just enough so the manager gets the impression that you are putting in a real effort. It’s ugly, but I notice that all... — read more

I worked at several companies that were worse than Schlumberger. It's not an ideal workplace, but at least I'm not expected to be on call 24/7 by my manager and I don't have to navigate a work culture that promotes backstabbing to advance your... — read more
Suddenly everyone is talking about not being valued. I don't have that feeling because I've never asked for anything more than pay. My question is: have you ever felt valued here?
Has anyone else had difficulty in getting their 20 years service award watch? Mine is already a year overdue and HR seems to have run out of excuses.
Think about this, how many PIPs do you know in the last 12 months that were given to people who were bad performers? Now think about how many made you do a double-take because they made absolutely no sense at all? They're now just using PIPs to get... — read more

I doubt that SLB can do anything anymore to keep the best people. Or can it?
The company couldn’t influence the changes that have taken place in the industry, but I think it could have better adapted to a low-carbon era. Perhaps Schlumberger could better navigate the energy transition?
I talked to a friend from another oil company about it and he told me that they are not in any better situation when it comes to attracting talented and capable new young people. Still, it seems to me that even those who are interested in this... — read more
Do you think there will be Schlumberger layoffs? Any chatter, news or rumors?
Now it seems like everything is under control, there is no talk of layoffs, the company has beat Q3 profit estimates as oilfield activity recovers, the atmosphere is finally a bit more relaxed, but,,,, I am personally afraid that it will not last... — read more
I left SLB last year during layoffs. Heard from current inmates at SLB that SAP X2 went live which is so bad in UK that one of the Product Centre will be closed if they don't get their act together. Is this true?
I stumbled upon this forum by chance and the amount of negativity here is amazing. I agree with some posts I’ve read that some things here aren’t really good, but c’mon, it’s not all that bad either. If Schlumberger was the only company I ever... — read more
Last year got an offer from SLB. Background check, dr-g test all passed. Instructed by SLB HR, I gave my previous employer a 2-week notice. Right before the start date, SLB notified me they rescinded the offer. I was left unemployed.
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
