There are better Oil and Gas Companies to work for, but they will train someone with no experience.

Financial Service Representative III Drilling Fluids (Current Employee) San Antonio, TX

Pros- Great Benefits ie. Reduce Stock Purchase, Low Insurance Premiums, 401k with high match
- Opportunity for growth in other areas
- Good Training and Huge knowledge base to pull from.

Cons- The pay is marginal compared to the same position with other companies for the hours you end up working.
- No transparency on policy from middle management, you just get "told" how it is going to be never the how and why.
- Not the best work/life balance, I work over 4300 hours a year and by the Halliburton policy I am 24 hours on call for all but 12 days of vacation throughout the year.
- No bonus sharing for jobs well done at the field level, you have to become an office jockey working 8am-4pm to see any of that money.

Advice to Senior Management- Pay your employees more and provide a better work/life balance.
- Provide more transparency on the how and why at the field level for engineers and they will be more willing to work hard for you.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Expect a lot from employees with little in return.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    I worked at Halliburton full-time for less than a year


    Pros: Benefits are the only motivation. Cons: After hire,employees are told to supply own tools and material to do job as expected. Customers hand out bonus checks to Halliburton but Halliburton… Advice to Senior Management: Be fair, find ways to motivate employees. They will keep… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
