Long gone are the days of the unskilled sample catcher and mudlogger. Big Blue now expects a degree and is willing to pay you half the average geologist wage (Average Geologist salary: $118,128 per year). "If you are looking for an exciting career in... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Schlumberger Ltd.
I bet there will not be an Engage to Excel survey this year! 2017 results are very disappointing. Very few managers submitting action plans and none are willing to share department results.
Will the The Woodlands, TX and Houston TX real estate market recover from the the Oil Industry downturn and continued layoffs that are occurring?
We seem to like to buy companies we have joint ventures with, but I think we are ripe to be acquired ourselves right about now, considering the sad and vulnerable state Schlumberger is in. I wouldn't be surprised if companies such as Weatherford... read more
Are you thinking new and acting new? What about your minions?
Fresh round of LOA’s and iLOA’s to start end of Q1. Cameron and Smith employees targeted. Rankin Road to be hit hard Good luck
I missed working for slb, how is the working environment? Still layoff or things got better ?
No meetings done for engage to excel yet. But Impact plans will be entered by end of quarter for management to get PIP. It is a shame that mid level management is not on board with Gallup but they are still getting big fat pay and bonus.
We don't hear any news or promotional articles over Transformation. Is it all over?
As an employee, are you at the 75th percentile of pay compared to your peer group? (vs Halliburton, Shell, Apache, ENI, GE Baker, etc)? Has SLB stock ownership yielded returns at the 75th percentile in its sector?
We made a lot of money redesigning workflows that didn’t really need redesigninng and we just changed the format donee could invoice for that We made the improvements in SQ and NPT look much better than what they were so we could show excellent... read more
With morale at lower than a snakes' butt, where are the results of the stating the obvious, eye-wateringlly costly farce, known as 'Engage to Excel'? I'm sure that the results were not too difficult even for Gallup to work out. I am waiting for the... read more
We need to see women’s rights and positive policies to get more women into management. This is 2018 Schlunberger and time to catch up with the rest of the world !!
Shame that UK union groups didn't pressurised Schlumberger corporate enough to stop jobs moving away to China. Union groups and MPs should have seen how many Schlumberger jobs from entire UK has gone to China.
More layoffs in Houston as they look to shed several million dollars of payroll. Also, they are going to be cutting all contractors to save on that expense as well. All roles will begin to transfer to Colombia, Romania, and India. Funny how Forbes... read more
Just now 4 people were let go in ITT here in Houston.
Or is everyone else fed up with Ponca posts and people banging on about how great a company Smith was? This is an SLB site - not some board for prehistoric numpties.
The Ponca City Development Authority has been trying to contact Slumberger about the possible purchase of the Ponca plant. They have other companies interested in it. SLB won’t return their calls or emails. Typical.
When is the slp3 payout and does anyone know what % we are getting
Well another year and a process we thought couldn’t get any worse has far exceeded expectations yet again. Going on the end of February and the C suite is still figuring out how to not pay PIPs and shaving out some more saving from the employees... read more
Trying to get my international pension payout has been fun. Of course I am following up continuously through askhr and getting told "just waiting on an approval". To be fair they did mention it would take 2-3 months but at 3 months now and all the... read more
Schlumberger board is tired of Paal and his policy of destroying the company. Change of leadership at horizon.
When CEO says - "tolerance towards actively disengaged employees is over", it means that Gallup survey results are not anonymous and if your answers put you under actively disengaged employee category then you will lose your employment with... read more
My boss keeps on telling me how good it was to work for Smith prior to Smith and Slum merging. Can others confirm this?
Southampton and Belfast were closed during/after downturn. Who's next? Remember - tolerance towards actively disengaged employees is over!
I am from Cameron but what the heck they pay me to do this. Only thing is my customers are driving me mad asking why I am not visiting them anymore.
SETC, IoT, machine learning, robotics...
Big liner hangers program manager let go today at. SRC. Similar one given the boot from Ardmore. Employeee engagement in the gutter.
I was approached by ex-SLB about filing a law suit about work environment bullying, abuse and discrimination. He/she was terminated just after coming back from stress leave and when requested to see doctor again, the HR manager told the person to get... read more
It’s hugely ambitious but Paal just announced that the blue rig of the future will not require any personnel onsite and will be operated remotely from strategic control centres around the world. This will have a huge impact on increasing... read more
What is happening? Thought the results were out in December? Is it so good that our hapless managers are totally amazed?
I see you slumdogs are suffering and bleeding. Good for you mofos, you deserve it, you got me fired and now I am your boss. My ex dictator came to my office while ago asking me to award him contract, I told him yes will do, same way he praised me... read more
during his address to SLB managers, our Great Leader showed us his unability to face criticism, let alone to go through some kind of self criticism exercise. In a nutshell: if we underperformed last year, nothing to do with his own choices, it is all... read more
Smith destroyed SLB
What is the latest in Belfast?
I am hearing first rounds of IT layoffs before the end of 1st quarter in Houston? Any Idea what's happening?
