What you are seeing now is the result of every single decision being based on “how will this effect my PIP”. Poor planning over many years and through many executives who have only cared about themselves and their friends. Field and factory workers... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Schlumberger Ltd.
Its actually past the time to cut the dividends on the common stock. It should have been cut when the markets were in free-fall and there was panic built-in. Now, employees being let go and furloughed, yet the company continues to pay more than... — read more
As expected Furloughs are making a comeback. 5 days per month starting April 12th. Involuntary or Voluntary. Who's planning on volunteering?
Now it really seems that layoffs and the lot are on the horizon. I also feel that the executive team is not taking enough of a pay cut in terms of percentage, as 20% is not much at all considering they make so much money. "People first", my a–.

Great place to work.
SLB is still running in Reeves County. They keep ordering sand. But it is slow. 7 or 8 loads of sand per day.
Anyone on here at reduced pay now? Just curious.
We as a company have decided to go back to our roots. We are only going to run resistivity logs, if you can't read 'em, and you don't know a water play when you see it, don't let the door hit you in the arse.
With 30% cuts to the budget, I'm betting there'll be even more layoffs than we originally suspected. Some of it might be mitigated with pay cuts, but I doubt it'll have too much... — read more

Surely the board of directors will not recommend a share dividend this year... Stock tanking below $13, $12bn loss, doing jobs at less than cost, oil hitting $25 and less, too much oil, shale in North America going down, down, down. Surely not... — read more
The annual election of SLB board of directors is on April 1st. Except for our new CEO and two others, the rest of the board was elected during the PK regime. Instead of complaining about our lot, let’s change the game. You can do this by voting for... — read more

This is so sad. So much unpredictablity. So much pain. I am sorry for all people who are affected. I retired in 2015
Oil price is always been center of economy and it will be for many more years to come. Feeling happy from this chaos isn't humane behavior. Just saying.
What's happening at Florence? How many let go? Which function?
Was just told that there are layoffs occurring across NAM. I know of a few that were let go from my M-I Swaco facility today (3/18/20).
Lay offs should happen by the end of the week. Oil is on its low leak so get ready to for layoffs.
Trump finally admitted that we may be headed for a recession. Ya think?

Potential for huge savings and profit improvement
