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

Current Employee - Financial Service Representative III Drilling Fluids in San Antonio, TX
Current Employee - Financial Service Representative III Drilling Fluids in San Antonio, TX

I have been working at Halliburton full-time (more than 3 years)

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 ManagementAdvice

- 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.

    I worked at Halliburton full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Security, good benefits, good safety culture

    Cons

    Mediocre pay, can't be innovative, must follow a lot of rules even if they don't make sense. Easy to be just a number. If you don't "fit in" then there can be problems. Difficult to get things done due to politics.
