    Pros

    Decent pay, lots of locations. A good way into the industry. Lots of blue stuff if you want it.

    Cons

    You are a number.very not a person. I mean you litterl have an employee number and when they lay you off it gives your number instead of your name.

    Advice to Management

    Retention is bad because halliburton treats their employees better. People should be investments and not all treated like temps.

    Pros

    A big company, a big name

    Cons

    Promotions and benefits increase are mostly done using bribes and connections, especially in Houston TX US. Company discourages but protects racially inclined management pretending that they have HR directors as minorities

    Advice to Management

    Some of the management are good folks. Some that they bring from the overseas especially from England are racists acting as they are still at home

    Pros

    high salary. a varied culture.

    Cons

    Expected (management will not actually tell you this but it is an unspoken mandate) to do over time work but not compensated for it. The company no longer sees you as a person. People are just numbers. There is no loyalty with this company.

    Pros

    Relocation packages. But at the end their actions are heading opposite way from their promises.

    Cons

    Inexperienced managers playing corporate life. They act like they were rescuing you giving you the opportunity of your life. Instead people, technology & profit; it should be profit, profit & profit. Expats managers in USA criticizing our country and laws, forcing you to work under third world employment conditions. HR is symbolic department due to they allow this issues turning sight to the other side.

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified managers for every role. Adapt expats to country where they are working. Following this basic things will give you more profit.

    Pros

    Diverse population, 4 month maternity leave if you've been there for 1+ years,

    Cons

    POOR MANAGEMENT, No support for Higher Education, Empty Promises, Inadequate HR team, Top down reviews only allows for poor management to stay in place, NO BONUSES, Work like a modern day slave; always working on holidays, unable to roll over vacation days to next year, honestly just plain HORRIBLE MANAGEMENT creates a negative vibe throughout the HUB.

    Advice to Management

    SLB needs to clean house on the management they have employed at the HUB-- Send out a bottom up review and see how little the managers support their teams.

    Pros

    Not sure there are pros any longer.

    Cons

    The management moving in or up is atrocious, all they care about is their bonus which us essentially based on how much they screw their employees out of pay. I'm not sure the entire company is like this but the north dakota region is.

    Advice to Management

    Be upfront stop promising one thing then doing the complete opposite of said promise. Stop promoting the individuals who are crappie employees just because you know they will cow to your every whim and question nothing. this is a recipe for absolute failure.
