Can't say much for today, but Ron Cherry fired me for buying a TRS80 and I was using my database to track my clients jobs to add value to them if possible. After I was released he put all of the sales on a Dec computer terminals systems to do what I had showed him that could be accomplished. Don't know about now.

The HR and coordinators have no appreciation of work life balance and there is a blame culture plus the customer is always right. They dont look at root cause of issues. They treat even some of their most experienced and hard working employers like shit. No loyalty .

When I started it was not Schlumberger. After the buyout a lot things changed, not all for the better. Corporate making big decisions from Houston. I got laid off in the oil field downturn.

Pros and Cons
All of the pros got taken away one by one.
Poor work life balance. Working long hours while on salary.
