I have been working at Halliburton full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Certain employees are "identified" as high performer, and get multiple promotions within short career term. Layoffs of good employees & technical staff are rare. Most people who are eventually laid off usually are lower performer, or jobs becomes redundant. A lot of contented employees that stay in company for greater than 30 years, which is rare in oil industry.

Cons

Compensation is low. If you are one of those non-identified employees, you will more than likely sit on the same position for years, until you seek your way out. Good thing is Halliburton is big enough that you can jump from one product line to another with little issue.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote lateral movement of employees, to not just sit stale at the same position for years.

    I have been working at Halliburton as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people who work here are layed back for the most part and offer a helping hand when you need one. They offer a lot of training opportunities to get you where you need to be.

    Cons

    One of the downsides that I see working here is that the engineers that I work with aren't making what they want to be making. Some of them are using Halliburton as a stepping stone to move on to a better paying position.
