Schlumberger or Halliburton
By alexandria1008 • 7 years 8 months ago.

Hello everybody!

I just want to hear your thoughts about Schlumberger and Halliburton. Both companies dominated almost all the oil producing contries in the world and I want to know which company is better to work with considering the decrease in demand of oil in North America.

What do you mean "decrease in demand of oil n North America"..

I used to work for Haliburton... Had a great time..

I believed both companies are engaged in exploration and other oifield services. Halliburton used to have KBR (construction segment), as of now they are into drilling, etc.

Harry99..how is like working with Hal? Is it a career wise to be there rather than SLB?

I worked for Halliburton as well, back in the days when Dick Cheney was the CEO. The company is inherently evil at the core, but fun was had by all. I agree with Harry99 that they look after you quite well and there is lots of room for growth, especially laterally. I especially enjoyed surfing the coporate Intranet for internal job postings.

worked for Hali's in Qatar for a number of years and now works for them in Aberdeen.

They can be a pain on grades and inequitable salaries but she is still with them.

Stacy hit the nail on the head with the evil at the core bit. I believe Cheney still takes money out of the pot

You can't go wron with any of them, but I don't agree with how you describe them. They are huge, but they are not dominating their fields. It also depends wher you want to work. I would suggest you try to get North Sea Experience, after that you are ready for anything.

Both companies make more than 20 Billion profits last year. Once you get to join them, you are secured.

Dear all both schlumberger/Halliburton are not oil companies instead they used to provide services to oil companies.

I used to work for schlumberger and would highly recommend that to any one specially if you are an engineer. Slb is one of the best companies in respect of developing/training their staff. Flip side is they are not very competitive with oil companies when it comes to your pay check.
