Pros

I love the oilfieldand the people who work in it! Almost to a man, they are good, hard-working, down-to-earth people.

Cons

Changes, especially in technology, always present challenges and sometimes even frustration when things do not work as they are designed. Adaptability, flexibility and a willingness to learn new things are always helpful in this environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Rather than reprimanding people for making mistakes and limiting capabilities (such as not allowing text messages from droid phones), empowerment and reinforcing positive behavior are where you will find the most value and how you create a professional, rewarding work environment (read it "employee retention").

    Pros

    Overtime is your bread and butter in the Bakken oilfield. Be prepared to work 120+ hours a week for a two week on, one week off schedule. Also be prepared for the government to rape you on your overtime pay. Halliburton does their best not to lay anyone off during the slow winter months and they offer housing, which is a scarce commodity in Williston, ND.

    Cons

    It's really a double edged sword. You're gonna put in a lot of hours, but where else can someone with a 2 year technical degree make $140k + annually. Some of our techs who have been with the company 5 years are making upwards of $180k annually.
