I worked at Sperry Drilling Services full-timeRecommendsNeutral OutlookRecommendsNeutral Outlook
While working at Halliburton, I met some excellent people that I can now call close friends. Its a great company for upward movement if you work hard and learn who to connect with. Networking is key, and there are always openings for those who put the effort in to stand out. I was an L/MWD field engineer, and the nature of the work was often challenging and stressful but rewarding in the end. Great pay if you can sacrifice the time from your home life.
If in the field, schedule is inconsistent at best, extremely long hours and mostly thankless work environment. There are good managers, but there are bad/seemingly incompetent ones as well. It will make your time in the field worse if you have the latter. I was lucky to have great people always in my corner, so its important for you to keep an eye out and learn how to do your job well (watch your own back) and recognize who your leaders are quickly.
Advice to Management
Make sure you learn how your local group works and where they fit. Take care of your employees, as they rely on you for support and backup out of the field. Your field engineers will want to work harder if they know it's for a manager who cares and steers the ship competently through industry and corporate storms.
