    Pros

    The benefits that are offered are very good especially when someone who knows nothing of these type of benefits due to military service starts employment with them, things are explained well and are among the best of other companies out there.

    Cons

    Biggest issue is keeping the workers in the dark on current issues with the slow down and the acquisition process by halliburton

    Advice to Management

    Allow individuals who might have more to offer the company move up quicker within the company than having to wait 2yrs to move up. Individuals with military experience have more to offer than just being a shop hand... Speaking from personal thoughts, coming from the military and being a supervisor for years to being unable to move up sooner than later is rather discouraging and may cause for seeking employment elsewhere that the opportunity to move up quicker is offered.

    Pros

    This is a company with a great name attached. It looks well on a resume. Will learn a great deal.

    Cons

    If you are hired on as a full time, don't have any expectations on promotions. They will give you the run around and use you up for the highly reduced pay. Managers are very hush hush.

    Advice to Management

    Be up front, live up to the core values that the company boasts so much about.
