Recent Sugar Land Layoffs

At the Sugar Land Campus, my husband was layed off on 6/26/18. He was with Schlumberger for 43 years!!!!! Yes, I said 43 years! How about that? He was a designer with a significant wealth of knowledge and has seen it all. He saved SLB money and was... read more


Houston will be a lean place from 2019 with very minimal IT resources and IT epicenter will be Pune.

Princeton move to Sugar Land FUBAR’ed

2 years behind schedule and only the bean counters know how much over budget and counting! They will never make a nuclear detector or generator again. Hope they have a supplier in China or India to outsource them to like everything else.

What are the attrition rates in your location? Too many hard working people leaving in Aberdeen because of how they are being treated by management

New CEO?

Paal time is limited, he’ll be gone in a few months...or stay as advisor to CEO for a few years... Who will be the next one? Obviously not Patrick...Stephanie?

Paal is Tone Deaf

He can't hear. Won't hear our message. Despite meetings and emails. A complete disregard to our subordinates. The ship has sailed and heading striaght to an ice burg.

ITT change?

Rumours are of scaling down on ITT - what will happen next to these groups?


I heard it's gonna get cut up, mfg consolidated or outsourced on a massive scale. Missing of big tenders just is not supporting enough of this insanely costly customization low volume mfg. Machining cost of over $300/hr and utilization of 25% while... read more
