SLB has some of the most incompetent managers in the world! Don't let the numbers fool you! The only way SLB makes money is by buying companies that make money, and then "integrating" then into bankruptcy. M-I SWACO is corrupt...haha...M-ISWACO US Land made $1B in 2011 and held the market share in all segments. SLB started implementing their management team...where is M-I SWACO?? All but gone! Just like Dowell, Pathfinder, Smith companies, M-I SWACO...not to mention what happened with Ankor Drilling. Bit of history for you SLB f'tards...SLB bought Ankor...then all but bankrupted it....then bought by Smith, who was then sued for owning a monopoly (by owning Ankor Drilling Fluids and M-I Drilling Fluids), after bringing out of bankruptcy, and now Ankor is still strong and going!
SLB is also a company who allows managers to sexually and racially discriminate against employees who aren't "their" people. SLB beats their employees down to nothing then discards them for new freshly graduated engineers...who know less then nothing and are completely uncoachable. SLB deploys the methodology that education trumps experience!!! Wrong answer in this industry.
SLB doesn't give two craps about their people...period! One of the worst companies I have ever worked for. After 12 years with M-I SWACO, I was replaced by a 3 year intern who was of racial and gender preference!
