    I have been working at Halliburton full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a very large company with presence all over the world. There is scope to go as high and as far as you want if you are prepared to put in the effort.

    Cons

    Being a large company you are one of thousands and subject to top down policies that can chop and change and be restrictive.

    Pros

    Halliburton is a reliable company as long as you do your work and don't take advantage of sick time. Many of the team members are excellent to work with.

    Cons

    When people have interviewed to work at Halliburton, I have been honest and recommend them looking else where. In the time that I have been with Halliburton, I have notice that there has been a shift from being a person to a number.
