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
I am looking for instructors/tutors that have over 5 years’ experience in energy industry (oil&gas, renewable, hydrogen, carbon capture and storage, decommissioning, etc.). They should be able to teach online. They should have a passion for knowledge... — 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
Luckily I found a new opportunity and I’m not here anymore. I still cannot figure out what's the logic for deciding who will be transferred to another plant and whom they will get rid of? There is never much logic in their moves in general. I hope... — read more
HR says they don't give any information about the case that was reported. HR claims its their policy. Is it accurate? How come the person who complains does not get contacted?
The fact that I was not a layoff target, and my colleague who was a fantastic employee was laid off, only demoralizes me even more. I have never felt that this company is so lost as I do now, nor have I ever felt more demoralized than I feel now... — read more
So what happened to the SLB Frac hands? Are they now wearing a Liberty uniform? I see some liberty guys on a comstock pad in Louisiana with SLB pumps
I was laid off after complaining about harassment. I did not know about retaliation. I missed the deadline. What are my options?
You are entitled to be treated like a human being and not an emotionless robot who is expected to do the work of three people within regular work hours while losing benefits and receiving no pay increase. If you are not looking for a new job already... — read more
Couple of people who I know are overdue for their watches (7 months and more). They keep being fobbed off when they ask for a presentation date. What is happening........ rumour had it that this perk for faithful service has been dumped. I assume, if... — read more
There is chatter in SL of having a union represent them due to low wages, declining benefits and poor management.
Biggest mistake was not leaving sooner. I probably lost a decade of experience and opportunity outside. If you are not happy, make the leap. The world outside is much much better. More pay, benefits, actually people oriented, profitable businesses... — read more
How many people given different roles and how many are being made redundant. What kind of roles are being offered. Office staff safe as always?
chlumberger mostly laid off completely wrong people. They showed the door to people who now excel in other companies, and here they kept mostly mediocrities and bullies. Considering how capable and engaged people this company once had, they... — read more
What will happen to the employees from the battery plant shutting at SHTC - will all employees be redundant or will at least some of them be moved to another location? I am also interested in your opinion on whether the closure of that plant was... — read more
In fact, I’m wrong, they’re very effective when it comes to demoralizing employees. My personal opinion is that in this company only a bully can become a manager. What is also very interesting is that they treat the worst those who work the hardest... — read more
I have never had less work to do. A few months back I finished everything I needed to finish in just a few hours and that’s it. Maybe it’s great for someone, but I’m pretty worried. Honestly, I prefer when I have a lot of work than situations like... — read more
Is it even legal to lay off after filling harassment complain? I was forced to sign a resign paper
Houston and FMPC should get there ducks in a row. One says strongly recommends getting a vaccine so you will be safe and can go without a mask. FMPC says get the vaccine and you don’t have to wear a Mask if you don’t show proof you still do. This... — read more

I know the question is too generalized and it all depends on the specific job you are looking for, but I wonder if you've noticed that it is now easier to find a new job in this industry than a few months ago?
Oil demand was at the beginning of a multi–year growth cycle and will reach pre–pandemic levels by 2022–end, top oilfield service provider Schlumberger's chief executive Olivier Le Peuch said on Friday, a quicker recovery than the one he predicted... — read more
