This placement at Schlumberger Cambridge Research was spectacular. Firstly the people here are very friendly and approachable, whenever you have a problem you can ask for help. The work done here is also very fulfilling with research affecting management decisions. However, the best thing is the sense of community within the interns and staff, there are plenty of opportunists for sports and social activities some are subsidised by the company as well.
I found my placement at Schlumberger Cambridge Research very rewarding and pleasant. I learned a lot and I improved in a technical level, I found my work very interesting and I had a lot of freedom on choosing my projects. I also found life in Cambridge very nice, as Cambridge is a very beautiful city to live in.
I thoroughly enjoyed my placement with Schlumberger, i felt that my role as an intern was greta as i got to be in charge og my own projects tthroughout the whole year, and i got to meet people within the compnay who are very high up. I feel that my internship has been very rewarding as i have gained many valuable skills.
I really enjoyed my placement. I was given responsibility early on and each project allowed me to develop new skills, from video editing to event management. All the staff were so welcoming and all wanted to help you progress, I never felt like I couldn't ask any questions and I felt like a valued member of the team.
I thoroughly enjoyed my placement at Schlumberger. Right from the beginning I was given far more real responsibility than I initially thought I would be given, being an intern. I was welcomed into a very diverse and supportive team who all brought something new to the table and I was able to learn from all of them.
Absolutely enjoyed this placement year. I worked in the ITS department at Schlumberger Cambridge Research. Right from the start, I felt welcome and going by the nature of my role, I interacted with almost everyone on the site. I felt like I was part of a community and my department helped me grow in many aspects. My placement year was a year full of exciting challenges and opportunities that were very rewarding and I left with fond memories and good friends and connections.
I have really enjoyed the past 6 months of my placement in Schlumberger. The work I have carried out directly relates to my studies at university and has allowed me to expand my breadth of engineering knowledge and soft skills - both useful for my final year and the future.
Fantastic placement. Was based in the Schlumberger Cambridge Research Centre looking at complex drilling fluids which was a new area for me. I felt a welcomed, important part of the team and was constantly challenged with new experiences that I would never have experienced whilst staying at university. It's such an easy going company to work for, with little things such as free tea and coffee to flexible working hours allowing everyone to work to there needs.
The internship was in an enjoyable location, the work was interesting. It was intellectually stimulation enough but wasn't too hard. The pay was also good, and I felt included and that I was given actual responsibility but without too much pressure or stress. The one downside as that despite the location being pretty and convenient by train I did feel a bit separate from people my own age
I enjoyed it a lot. The work environment was great and felt more like working with a hobby than actual work. (Which is awesome I must output). I would definietly recommend this to others. It is a big company and a great place to learn new things and in a technological point of view they are very up to date in regards to todays information systems and tools.
