  • Schlumberger is a great place to work not only because it has an amazing culture and environment, but also the people shape the company culture rather than by management.
  • Employees are encouraged to climb higher and get promoted at the company.  By showing their abilities to perform well, workers are able to rise in promotions and earn higher wages.
  • You need to evaluate yourself, seek your inner capabilities and work upon them.

They have a lot of development opportunities for their employees and run a programming career progression system especially for technical people as their growth becomes stagnant after certain level as they do not have the benefit of getting promotions starting from lower management then moving towards middle and upper management.
  • A company runs a program for them where they can assess themselves that what have they done and what they have not been able to in the last few years and they themselves are responsible for that. It is a self-driven and motivation program that helps in their career growth.
  • If they will to go set some position whether they possess skills required or not then in that case as well they can aspire for that. They can speak to management about the same and if management thinks them of being capable, it asks an individual to create a plan and training required for that position and after submission company helps in providing it to an employee. It is called a career orientation review which is being performed every three to five years.
