Current Employee - Account Representative in Houston, TX

Pros

Opportunity for advancement is there if you work for it. Local management has the discretion to promote you or not, so it can be good.

Cons

Once again, local management has the discretion to promote you. If you aren't one of the "good ole boys", you might be left behind. Always network outside your local area.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advance the people that show talent and that can bring something new to the company. The "good ole boys" aren't going to keep the company together forever.

    Current Employee - Technical Professional in Houston, TX

    Pros

    Halliburton offers many different options, and a varied amount of jobs. Very open for you to move where you want to go in the world. Field training is very good.

    Cons

    Communication isn't always the best. Management structure is very confusing. Too much wasted money. too much to do and not enough people to do it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    fix the structure of management. This would fix most of the communication problems, and would allow the management team to be more involved in projects instead of just involved in the projects that are late. You could fix this by simply adding 1 layer of management or something like a 1st step management layer.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Bakersfield, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bakersfield, CA

    Pros

    Money is much better than I earned before, but not competitive with the oil companies. Benefits are good, and there is decent opportunity for growth. All in all the business culture is professional, and the technology and equipment reliability have come a long way.

    Cons

    Personnel are typically controlled at the regional level, so your boss will try to hang onto you if you are good. Many good employees are not able to be transferred or promoted because their local manager wants to hang onto them for selfish reasons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Control personnel from the top down, and make more strategic moves to keep people fresh and give them varied experiences. Many people tend to get into a rut if they stay in one position longer than 3 years or so. Do a better job of providing feedback. Performance review system needs a lot of work. Don't keep people from moving if they are willing.
