"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."

"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.

"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. "

"Great diversity of gender and race - it seems like people who are qualified and work hard will get promoted regardless of gender. However, there aren't as many senior managers who are women - still, considering the gap between men and women in graduating with engineering BAs and PhDs, SLB does a great job of getting women in the door."

"I've been the only woman working in a department or one of two for my entire career. As such, navigating maternity leave was somewhat difficult since there aren't many precedents. I wasn't given any issues with it, and was very much welcome back and gained responsibility afterwards. There are not many women in the upper echelons, though there is a drive to build more gender balance."
