Normally when I am out drinking with the company vehicle I know my limits. If it’s a meal we are out for I can have a couple glasses of wine or beer and not have a problem here in Houston. However, I drank 3 bottles of wine on the way home from a... read more

Topics regarding layoffs at Schlumberger Ltd.
I would really want to know how is atmosphere in slb these days! Apparently lots of employees abuse. I would like to be corrected if I am wrong.
At Smith to get hired back take a big cut in pay from previous employment amount. Mostly hiring people that came from foreign countries . Definitely Schlumberger’s Hidden agenda.
So, the oil prices are rising. Will Schlumberger start calling laid off workers to come back?
Got laid off from Bits & Drilling Tools a week before Christmas last month. 8 people laid off including me - 62, 61, 60 (that was me) the rest were in the 50’s. Had 4 more months to retirement but it’s all about business climate right? This is what... read more
Slb has to move business model of sis to a normal industry practice like any other oil&gas or IT service company. Instead of having over populated local offices, support and services should be centralized and sale should be regional or area offices... read more
Im just curious, has schlumberger given any merit or pay increase since 2014? Also when you get new assigned role, what is the pay increase look like?
Will we be able to complete with equipment that’s been mothballed for years.
Layoff expected for January in Houston Area. I hope it won't be that big. Read this in another thread, does anybody know where this information came from? I haven't heard anything about Huston layoffs, and usually there's at least some kind of rumor... read more
We're coming SLUM. Be ready to be taught how its done in North America!
So after schlumberger stating they had far to many machining hours world wide and therefore could not keep open multiple manufacturing centres world wide they have decided to open a brand new state of the art manufacturing centre in saudi. Say good... read more
Looks like OneStim is finally dead along with Transformation!
Does anyone know what slb is going to do in 2018 in Tex if so tell me it would help..
Anyone has details or heard of this ? Apparently this is new extension to transformation program for 2018. Lord help us.
A lot were already laid off this month. It is really sad what is happening. For those not familiar, SKK developed and produces tools like [WL] Sonic Scanner, VSI, EDTC, PPC, MDT modules, and [DnM] SonicScope, among other tools. The rest of the people... read more
I have looked at the movies, the trainings and the marketing websites and I still cannot completely figure out what is DELFI. As far as I can tell, it is a web-based portal for accessing slb legacy applications on the cloud, plus one single native... read more
Rumor has it,slb is going to acquire Buy us (aker) and do what they did to Smith, I am so scared, this is how slb is, unsinkable and merciless.
Seems to have gone very quiet. I would have thought that with all their super fast computers, Gallup would have processed the results ages ago.
and we should thank our Legacy Smith team! Although they manufacture miserable bits they're doing an outstanding job decorating our campuses. Finally a job well done!
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... read more

The year 2017 is coming to an end soon. How was Q4 2017? Will SLB survive in 2018? Will PK still be the CEO with his greedy friends?
I heard that international staff will be offered transfers, all local staff will be offered severance package with few exceptions. Few of the local staff in management positions will also be offered some limited relocation and some key personnel that... read more
How are things in Belfast,? How many transfers? What is severance pay like? Any timeline?
It seems like layoffs are finally over. What do you think?
According to the Petroleum Economist Magazine - Schlumberger are service company of the year. Clearly the selection criteria included the employee input, engagement and motivation, direction and investment in people. Or was SLB the best of the rest?
More cuts are coming! If you have vacation use it
Don’t understand why they transfer them? They don’t have substantial skills, they can’t speak English well, it’s costly to move or keep them, just think of renting, travel, private school, it’s almost equal to one salary. Don’t understand why SLB nam... read more
I hear they need some machines tore up in Houston or some jib cranes tore out of cement. Cell 5 scrap king is on his way. Lol
The "transformation" is just another buzz-word. Every big company uses the same. It was originally sold by SAP and business consulting companies (Andsersen & co.) as a way to get rid of the "paper" by exploiting digital/online business systems. Kudos... read more

Does anyone know if thee is there any truth that Onesubsea has lost the Mad Dog 2 Contract for supplying trees?????
One of the purposes of the transformation was supposedly to help employees focus on their actual job and avoid distractions caused by the various business processes. In that respect it has been an obvious failure, precisely because of the spotlights... read more
