    I have been working at Halliburton full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    great benefits , good overtime hours ,training

    Cons

    Field locations run by many unprofessional, incompetent individuals who merely made their way up the ladder by friends and favors. Promotions largely given based upon the buddy system and harrassment and discrimination are prevalent although most employees fear for loss of employment and as such, keep it under wraps. HR does not offer the support it should to employees. DO NOT work for Halliburton field camps! expect to almost never see your family if you work 24 hours call without a schedule you will live to work and not work to live not paid a lot just seems that way after all the accumalted working hours . you never really know if or when your off duty

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be honest to employees or at lost try to be .patiance and communcation skills goes a long way. you and hiring humans not ordering equipment remember fatigue is a factor

    Doesn't Recommend
