    I have been working at Boots & Coots full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good training program, large company backup, good compensation (base pay), good vacation package

    Cons

    Large company, layoffs are currently occurring, no sales people helping to sell Boots & Coots services, poor bonus because not a lot of work currently ongoing, poor health benefits (with the lowest cost health care option)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more sales people.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They had previously fired the earlier managers and replaced them with people from outside the service line. Plus I was working through a temporary service making 10 dollars an hour for heavy dangerous work. While others working there enjoyed salaries of 6 thousand dollars or more a month. Shop was horrible, needs upgrades, we basically worked under a carport....

    I worked at Boots & Coots

    Pros

    Boots & Coots (not Halliburton) people are great.

    Cons

    Now that its owned by Halliburton, Halliburton runs it. Its a bureaucracy and takes forever to get anything done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too late. Advise would have been not to sell it to Halliburton.
