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

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

    Pros

    Good training, good pay, alot of oppurtunies if you stick around long enough.

    Cons

    Everything is based on seniority and not performance. Will have to wait on people hired before you to advance before you are given oppurtunity. If some one is lazy and complacent where they are at, you will stall in your progression.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Base oppurtunies and advancement on performance.
