The service sector is all about dog eat dog and what's fair isn't anyone's priority.

will it matter what company you work for as soon as the small company comes up with a good idea one of the big ones buy them out. they then fill them with managment to shape the exsiting workforce in the model they want.
We all have friends who work in the competition, just variations of the same idea.
Oilfield Services are all becoming the exact same in every aspect by copying the negative policies of one another as well. Squeeze employees then cut and push employees limits and aging technology.
No longer a frontier sector it is all about doing more work than the competitor for less revenue. lead by the biggest Schlum creating dog eat dog environment.
Work for a company that reward there staff with annual increase along with good benefits and finally good holidays don't work for halliburton
Don't take a job for either. Oil companies treat their employees like sh1t and the industry is a bit low tech low energy. Maybe Schlumberger might treat their employees better being that they're a European company. American companies tend to treat employees badly. Stay away from them both. Stay out of oil, it's backward and low tech
Neither, Both HAL & SLB are corrupt as hell which is not saying to much for BHI/GE and WFT. I left because of all the corruption and took my experience, expertise, and knowledge of Technology to a much smaller upcoming organization that plans to grow taking market share from BIG corrupt organizations.
Read all the posts on Schlumberger first before complaining
Well that depends on salary along with benefits provided my feelings are it would not be Halliburton as still waiting on pay rise after 5 years
Deary me- youre point other than being a pedant over punctuation and grammar ? oh you dont have one unless you are trying to suggest 1 alu is stupid for pointing out he cant work for slumbering jay. must be a manager with such insight and humour.
Were you being ironic with the lack of capitalization when starting sentences or using proper nouns? How about your way of spelling "controversy," "inferiority" or "don't?" How about "your" when referencing the possessive? Good to see that you managed to spell "stupid" correctly.
bit of contreversy there me thinks you have a bit of a inferiorty complex, some of us live in an area that schlumberger dont operate. so youre stupid statement is just that.
Schlumberger has the higher quality management that don't make stupid acquisitions that fail and cost billions to clean up the mess. That people quality goes right down thought the organization to the field. A common rule of thumb is that a Schlumberger guy is worth 3 Halliburton guys, generally speaking.

Neither one. Find a smaller company to work for. Private and off the stock market if possible.
