"The connect women organization is a good start, but is not strong in comparison to other similar ergs at comparable firms in the industry."

"Be careful which position you end up in. Work life balance doesn't exist at all in many of the positions."

"It's tough for sure, and if you want to start a family it'll be hell if you don't have an incredible partner willing to pick up the slack or a support network."

"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."

"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 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."

"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"

"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. "

"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. "
"It was a male oriented field"
"Not friendly if you have a family."
"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."
"Very few women in key decision-making roles. I stayed long in the company to try and change that. Eventually, I had to leave because of the geography requirement of my SO."
"After working for 10 years, i found that work life balance in this company depends more on bosses than on the company policies. if you are lucky to have a good management, the company rocks! you need lot of networking to go ahead in career at schlumberger."
