If you're considering starting or adding to your family, Schlumberger only considers ONE parent the primary caregiver and will only allow that person to take time off. You can take up to 11 weeks of paid leave. The primary caregiver does not apply if your significant other is also taking any type of leave or is unemployed. Secondary parental leave is up to 40 hours of paid leave.

    Maybe. Schlumberger is not known for allowing employees to have a good or even reasonable work-life balance. If you have a family, you want to be there for the milestones, the recitals, the basketball games - Schlumberger is going to make it really hard to be able to do all that.

Great on the paper, but unfortunately has now turn out to be more of a paper exercise than real actions, and we are still not getting new female talents accessing the top exec.

This work can be hard for women. Especially if they have kids/family.

This company is about self-empowerment. You need to take ownership of your career and not be afraid to ask for what you want. In general, I have found the company to be supportive of females and it definitely takes gender balance seriously.

    a lot depends on the department/location - some areas of our industry operations are by their nature less flexible. In general, the company works hard to ensure fair practices in every location.

The company offers many interesting, demanding and rewarding jobs at the forefront of the industry, but still has some potential on work-life-balance for parents. I think we need to contribute to improve the company culture to be more female friendly - or the company will loose the best candidates

    Please note: Length of maternity leave subject to local governmental regulations overruling company policies. Maternity leaves worked fine, but more challenging to return to work as not family friendly. I can easily work 50-60 hours per week with some flexibility on when I work (for instance early mornings or weekends). I can't work 4pm-6pm due to pick-up from child care and family dinner. This was respected by local management, but not by international management.

The benefits and materntiy leave benefits are really great. However, SLB is a giant, slow-moving corporate machine. Nothing happens quickly and everyone seems to be stuck doing things how they've always been done. In my department, great suggestions were regularly shot down, but it seemed like they liked to give you hope that it could work and it would just take months for them to finally (officially) shoot your idea down.

    There was just a level of drudgery. The work was always exactly the same and there was almost no such thing as moving up. There's was nowhere to move within my department, and my role in marketing communications didn't lend itself to accepting roles outside of the marketing department.

Company has introduced a global policy that aims at increasing gender diversity in its male-dominated workforce. Although not comparable to tech companies like Google, better maternity leave policy than most other engineering companies in the USA.

Schlumberger is a great company to start your career. They will train and challenge you. The company is also demanding in terms of hours and commitment. There is low job security due to the cyclicality of the Oilfield industry resulting in layoffs.

    Maybe. I have worked for SLB for the last 13 years, straight out of Undergrad. It was a great first employer that helped me to grow and challenge myself. It is a company in a male dominated environment with cyclical crises in the Oilfield industry requiring major layoffs. The culture is demanding in terms of hours, with a requirement of mobility and international assignments to move upward. There is very little room for accepting mistakes and it is commonly said internally that you are only as good as your last successful assignment.
