Unfortunately it's the trend now in big businesses to treat people like cattle. You are just a number, and at the mercy of superiors who care about nothing more than advancing themselves. And they in turn are at the mercy of their superiors. Companies have forgotten that in order to be truly successful, you need a workforce that feels valued. Being afraid of loosing your job every day makes for an unproductive employee. Companies unfortunately think this is a motivator. If you loose your job, seek out smaller companies who still appreciate a good employee. It might be less money, but you also might be much happier.

Majority of current slb employees are mofos, who cares if they get fired.
They deserve it.
I agree, big companies do s---, bottom line is how much you are happy or stay happy.
I got hired outside oil and gas, much happier, bit less money 30%, but I really love this new chapter of life.
Few month after I got laid off, I got offer from slb as mobile to Europe, I did not accept as the future wasn't clear!
Unfortunately oil and gas companies during this bust turned into slave torturing buildings.
"loose" --> WRONG!!, "lose" --> RIGHT
