    I worked at Halliburton full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Again great experience. You get your hands in a lot of different technology and innovation. You get amazing benefits including stock purchase with discount via a quarterly basis. Overall its a great place to start and if you end up finishing there wonderful.

    Cons

    Pay structures are completely bogus. If you don't negotiate when you start you may lose all your previous years of work experience or they may not get counted. After they get you into their pay bands you cant renegotiate, so the previous is very important. They value higher degrees and have bureaucratic rules to basically promote those employees versus employees who are out performing others. They lose a lot of really good engineers and keep the mediocre ones because they can keep them on a lower pay band and wont get complaints.

    Overall its a chess game, you end up somewhere on the board and if your in a bad position to begin with they will try and keep you there as long as they can without giving you any promotions or any sort of incentive. They try and cap your salary and then promote you so they can take longer getting you to a specific salary range. This is very frustrating.

    The saying at Halliburton among the employees is "they will not take you seriously until you call their bluff and leave the company". Then if you ever decide to come back you can get the promotion you should have gotten when you were already there working your tail off. This to me is backwards and nothing is based on merit or experience, its all based on a sense of obligation and favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote good employees because if you don't they will leave. At the end of the day rules like "Only PHD's can be managers in technology" is pretty backwards because everyone knows PHD's are impersonal and make terrible managers. If you recognize an employee is exceeding expectations much faster than your master's candidates, don't try and keep them back in order to satisfy your organizational chart. The other employees should recognize that they are under performing and do better. Good employees should not be punished for their excellent performance.
